The Christian Faiths believe in one God and the first commandment presented to Moses that states:”I am the Lord God and thou shalt not have false gods before me.” Our God is all-knowing, all-wise, and omnipotent with the vision to see into the future. He is one God only The Father,the Son and the Holy Spirit or better known as the Holy Trinity,in the majority of established Christianity, and has always been and always will be, and is not from this World. All Christians who believe in Christ,as our Redeemer, can go to Heaven regardless of gender.
The Mormon Faith also calls itself Christianity but varies widely from other established Religions in the Christian Faith. The Mormon Church is in direct conflict with their belief of God. They believe He is from the earth and gained Godhood.He has not always been but will always be. He has no vision into the future because man can only see the present and the past and since their god gained godhood while on earth he cannot see into the future. They believe that God is all good and wise and all-powerful. They believe that there are many gods as men of the Mormon Faith can reach Godhood or become Christ, as did God. Women are not able to go to heaven on their own power but must be tied to a man of the Mormon Faith.
All other Christian Churches are under the guidance of the ordained clerical who in most cases spend many years studying theology(there are those who get their certificates by mail order, out of back doors or over the computer, in some cases as well); The Mormon Church does not have a clerical that are trained in theology but instead have lay men who run and head up their Church, and hold jobs elsewhere. Christianity teaches that it is difficult for the wealthy person to gain Heaven unless they are aware of the fact that “to those who have been given much, much is expected of them”. The Mormon Church also believes in charitable deeds and contribute a great deal to the poor through government subsidies like all Christianity, but unlike Christianity, they believe that God smiles on the wealthy. It is a direct sign to them, that regardless of how the wealth is gained, that their wealthy leaders meet with approval from God. For that reason, unless someone is wealthy, it is not possible for them to be named a leader or a Bishop of the Church.
Mitt Romney is a Bishop of his Church. Although it was long in coming, the Christian Faiths acknowledge battering,abuse, incest, and child molesters even when it pertains to their own clergy. They allow for divorce and openly recognize abusive relationships even though many are still slow to grant divorce.
The Mormon Church refuses to accept the existence of any kind of abuse, be it molestation,incest or battering, publicly,but deal with it privately. Instead of acknowledging it publicly and reimbursing the victims, the Church hires minions of lawyers whose only job it is to fight any and all accusations that come forward from the members of their Church. They have so much money behind them that if they were not a Church they would head the list on the Forbes 500. It is impossible to fight them in a court on an accusation of any kind of abuse or incest because they file case after case declaring interference with Religious rights and hold it up in Court for years. They exhaust the income of any law firm that tries, unless the opposing law firms merge together to fight against them. Women and children are both sent home by the Bishops of the Church to try harder as neither equality for women or divorce exist in the Mormon Church or is possible. They still deny that women and children are abused by the men or members of the Mormon Church when it is quite obvious that both take place.
There are other factors that lead to the differences in religious beliefs but, I personally, have to ask what is it that upsets those who support Mitt Romney, who as a Bishop of his Church must put his beliefs first, that makes people accept values based on ignorance over those beliefs of President OBama’s acceptance of gay rights or equality for all Americans who he represents, as President? Certainly, we all must understand that as an elected President of a free country, everyone’s civil rights and liberties must be protected by ALL of our elected officials. To do less than that defeats what our Nation stands for to the rest of the free World and is a slap in the face of Democracy. Honest men who show courage when others hide or lie is what we all need in order to maintain our own freedom and the guarantees that follow along with that freedom, regardless of race,creed,gender or color.
Mitt is entitled to have his beliefs and feel deeply about them just as Christians are their own beliefs. Government however is not intended to be led by religious belief and that is strongly Spelled out in our Constitution that many a young man and woman have fought and shed blood for or died for. The families of our brave people continue to sacrifice greatly to defend all of our inalienable rights to a free society. It was also spelled out by Thomas Jefferson in his letter to the Baptist Church in the infancy of our Democracy.
What makes any of us feel more arrogant or self-righteous when it comes to refusing to accept the beliefs of President Barack OBama, over that of Mitt Romney’s lies? Isn’t this the job of all Presidents of a free Society under our Constitution and his job as President? Shouldn’t all People who believe in “Love thy Neighbor as thyself” also believe in equality for all? How is granting people of all walks of life the right to love each other and their families through civil unions and marriage any different from the belief that we profess to have? If Mitt Romney is entitled to his beliefs and still able to run for President of these United States then isn’t Barack OBama equally entitled to embrace all of us equally in his acceptance of every American’s right to love over hate?
Either we are Americans who practice what we preach, through” loving our neighbors as ourselves” and are ready to defend the rights of both our neighbors as well as our fellow Americans and the Constitution that grants both Civil and Equal Rights to all Americans,without Religious interference, or at heart we are worse than those who we profess to be better than.
Congratulations President OBama as today you brought back the hope for all Americans who have been down trodden by the Republican Party for far too long. We salute Your courage no matter how much Mitt Romney,the Tea Party, and the Conservatives will once more try to take it from you or cheapen the same!
The person who shows the most courage and honesty, and is willing to fight for equality for all of us, has proven to be Barack OBama, time and time again. To elect a man who openly defies the Constitution of these United States, as Mitt Romney has declared he will do, should be a disgrace to all Americans who believe in equality and freedom for everyone. Vote for President Barack OBama and a Congress and Senate that will work with him, instead of against him, in November. It is time that we stop the wealth of this Nation and the dollars they pour into the campaigns as, “unknowns” from destroying both our economy and freedom for all of us.
