So is Glenn Beck for supporting Mitt Romney because he's a Mormon too?
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 02:02 PM by zulchzulu
I didn't realize that Glenn Beck is a Mormon (http://christianlds.wordpress.com/2008/01/28/glenn-beck... /) and he was mentioning that he wanted Mitt Romney to get ready for 2012 (I'm assuming to run for President and not the End Times).

What does the fact that Beck is a Mormon do with the Right Wing Zealots? Do they know?

(By the way, I don't have a "problem" with Mormons...)

About the Republican "Christian"* base and Mormons:

...a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll back in June of 2006 found that 37 percent of Americans said "that they would not vote for a Mormon presidential candidate." Similarly, in a February of 2007, USA Today poll, 24% of American adults flat out said that they would not vote for a Mormon who ran for the presidency.

Those numbers, which are none too cheery for Mitt backers become even more grim when you consider the very real possibility that many of the people who say that they won't vote for a Mormon may be Christians who typically vote Republican, but won't cast their vote for someone whom they consider to be part of a cult. This survey of Christians at ChristiaNet.com would seem to support that theory. 59% of the 2000 Christians surveyed "claimed they would not vote to elect a Mormon for president."

* I don't find people who classify themselves as "Christian" who are racist, homophobic, for the death penalty and for killing brown people in wars.

Does Beck wear magic underwear?
I'd ask him if I had the chance. He probably shops in the Girl's Section.

So, I'm assuming so.

4. Joseph Smith was called a prophet
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
He started the Mormon religion
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Joseph Smith was called a prophet-

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Many people believed Joseph
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
And that night he-ee saw an angel
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Joseph Smith was called a prophet
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

He found the stones and golden plates
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Even though nobody else ever saw them
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

And that's how the Book of Mormon was written
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb dadumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb dadumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dahumb dahumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb dumb dumb dumb duuumb, duuumb.

Martin went home to his wife
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
And showed her pages from the Book of Mormon
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Lucy Harris smart smart smart
Smart smart smart smart smart

Martin Harris dumb dadumb-

Lucy Harris smart smart smart
Martin Harris dumb.
So Martin went on back to Smith
Said the pages had gone away
Smith got mad and told Martin
He needed to go pray
Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.

5. The brethren stick together.
That is why there are so many Utahans scammed out of their life savings. If you belong to the "ward" you are home free for any and all things, be it good or evil.

I doubt even Glenn Beck can convince the truly Christian onservatives to go for the Mittster.

6. Letterman said why Romney will never be president: "you look like the guy who fired me."
If he had been in OFFICE SPACE, he would have turned it from a comedy into a gothic horror movie.
