Why the press has gone lightweight on Governor Romney escapes me. Religious affiliation mattered to the press corps in 2008. I don't understand why it does not matter in 2012.
In my last blog post I quoted Mitt Romney making shocking remarks that were highlighted in a Boston Globe story last week. Now video has surfaced of Romney making those bigoted claims about gay parents while pushing his heartless policy against their children.
Reagan and Clarke debate whether 44 won a Pyrrhic victory at Boca -- crushing content as Romney passed a 'commander-in-chief' test? And they talk taboos: does the Gingrich-Sununu crowd race-bait? Kosher to discuss Mitt's Mormonism? Who lies more?
What are we to make of Mitt Romney seeking permission from Mormon leaders to become pro-choice on abortion years ago when he ran for the U.S. Senate i...
Perhaps the most the controversial aspect of Romney's tenure as a Mormon leader involved his choices in upholding traditional and backward church beliefs regarding women.
The Real Romney We won the lottery. Don't think this is normal. Don't think that your life will have the kind of plenty that ours has had. I sometim...
In fact, for Latter-day Saints to benefit from a Romney presidency would be extraordinary. Romney would have to be a bold leader who fixes the country's problems without dividing us into warring camps.
Barack Obama's performance in the first debate was disastrous, I claimed, because "what he has seen of America since 2009 has broken his heart." His performance in the final presidential debate was superb for exactly that same reason.
With the announcement that along with his tax returns Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has kept his conversion to Islam a secret the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association removed language labeling Islam a "cult" from its website.
Mormons (including Mitt Romney) may be more readily inclined to internalize and support neoconservative foreign policy positions because of themes and ideas that they have internalized from a lifetime of reading their sacred religious text.
In September 1857, the church that now fascinates a nation experienced one of its darkest moments. At Mountain Meadows, deep in southern Utah, a group of Mormon militiamen slaughtered 120 unarmed non-Mormon emigrants.
Billy Graham's own website is automated so that Christians who search for the term "Mormon" will get this page result and be informed, straight from Graham himself, that the Mormon Church is in reality a cult. It's that simple.
Mitt Romney's debate performance last night showed Americans one thing tonight: It's politics that shapes his inner core and not, it would appear, religious values.
The primary stumbling block between us is the fact that I am gay and Mitt is a Mormon. I know where his heart lies. I couldn't possibly vote for someone who might govern for his religion first and will never support my right to enjoy the freedoms that everyone in our country wishes for.
Unfortunately, cautiousness doesn't translate as well on primetime, so in today's episode of Weeklings! I'm offering some simple debating tips to help out Monsieur POTUS. Some of my methods may be controversial, but I assure you they're also ridiculous.
As a Mormon, I was raised on hand-of-God narratives in which prayer almost always yielded miracles for our underdog team. But in the case of the Romney debate victory, please forgive my skepticism.
