Not so fast Boston Globe

The Church of Latter Day Saints refutes the charges. Read all about it at our favorite website.

Clearly, the Globe is going to be a pain in Mitt's butt for the foreseeable future.

The Globe's getting more desperate to make a story actually stick to Romney...they've been after him for years.

If the best they can do is just make up imaginary "documents", it must be a hard life trying to find dirt on Romney. Poor Boston Globe.

I like Lowell Brown's take at the Aricle6Blog.

And the Church's spokeswoman responses.

The real story here is the shoddy reporting.

I think people are going to get sick of the "Mormon issue" pretty quick if this kind of stuff is all that it's going to be.

Neither Romney nor the Mormon church are going to be able to fool anybody. The Mormon church cannot view a potential Romney presidency as anything other than a golden opportunity to advance its false doctrine on a global scale. Christians need to ask themselves: If Romney wins, how many millions of people around the world could be duped into a dangerous cult?

Paul S- your comments continue to be way over the line. Please rein in your rhetoric or we will have to start deleting. You can make your point without being completely insensitive.

Jeff- Thanks for the link to Article 6.

As a Huckabee supporter, I have these questions:

The Quorum of 12? Prophets? . . .

Really? Seems like MItt wants it both ways...religion shouldn't play a part in politics, unless we want to use it for organizational and fundraising purposes. Hypocrite? yes. typical.

CC: With all due respect, it should not be out of bounds to question whether or not the American people want to elect someone President of the United States who have very strange beliefs.

Once Romney addresses it publicly, if his statement is believable and reassuring, then at that point it will be out of bounds, but it should not be out of bounds before he clears it up.

whinin08,

Religion is not playing a part of politics. Romney has been reaching out to all of his supporters. Are you suggesting that Romney should simply ignore supporters who happen to be mormon?

Why is it that you jump on Romney for being hypocritical when every former president all looked to mormons and other religious conservatives for their votes, contributions, and networking? Surely you're not so naive as to think Huckabee will be avoiding all the baptists.

Better call the Boston Globe...I hear they're hiring.

Interesting article titled "Who's Afraid of a Mormon President?"

http://www.henryinstitute.org/commentary_read.php?cid=322

Every now and then a loud whiny person who doesn't understand Article VI will try to hype up fears of letting a mormon in the oval office. Intersting thing is, such a person cannot produce a single shred of evidence for any of their fears occuring in the past with elected mormons.

CC: I disagree with your assertion that my comments are "way over the line." In what way? If you are suggesting that my assertion that Mormonism is a dangerous cult is "over the line," I will point out to you that this is not my opinion, but that of the Southern Baptist Convention http://www.sbc.net AND the Catholic church http://www.catholic.com

Great read from Mark Finkelstein exposing the anti-religious liberal hypocracy.

http://newsbusters.org/node/8527

If there's one message that's consistent from MSM and liberals alike, it's that people whose religious convictions lead them to vote conservative are dangerous. If we could summarize it into a tag line:

"Believe what you want, pray if you must, but by no means should you ever allow your ignorant belief system to corrupt the public square."

It is a sign of the times that media outlets such as the Globe and NY Times would even think to question the constitutionally guaranteed political freedoms of religious individuals and institutions.
