When the Mormon Church came out of the woodwork like it did with the “I’m a Mormon” ad campaign, it gave us a good look at what their agenda was really all about. It also surprised us with Christians who threw caution to the wind just so they could show they weren’t voting for a hardcore liberal like Obama.

Thought of the Day about the Graham Family, Romney and Integrity
We’ve written about the election so many times now that I’ve lost count. I never would’ve dreamt that I’d be this involved and at this stage I can’t wait until November 7th to come rolling around so it’ll be over with.
Melissa wrote a piece about a week ago (http://lifeafterministry.com/2012/10/12/god-is-still-in-control/) that should sum up the views of Christians worldwide, alas, some of us seem to panic at the last minute and ditch our moral convictions to pick what Ed Decker called, the lesser of two evils.
Thought of the Day about Mitt’s Mormonism and the Presidential Debate
Here in part is what Mr. Romney said;
“We’re a nation that believes that we’re all children of the same god and we care for those that have difficulties, those that are elderly and have problems and challenges, those that are disabled. We care for them.”
The other day I read an article in my local paper about the impact Romney’s run for the White House is having on the general public, and Mormonism itself. The article interviewed two Mormon missionaries serving in the church I attended as a Mormon. The article confirms the concern many Christians have had from the moment Romney started to gain momentum in the race and as he gets closer to being the GOP nominee their concerns aren’t without merit.
Mitt Romney’s Religion
I think back to all the years I volunteered for your father’s crusades and they had me help the ministry in warning people about Mormonism and helping Mormons come out of that cult and you endorse him again on ABC News tonight with David Muir.
We’re praying Mr. Graham reevaluates the path he’s chosen to take and publicly recants his words.

Their Advertising Campaign for Mitt and Jon
According to the NY Times in November 2011, the Mormons hired two big name advertising agencies in 2009, Ogilvy and Mather and Hall and Partners, to gather info on what people thought of Mormons. For those who answered in the focus groups they found that if they had any opinion at all it was negative, listing their reasons as ““secretive”, “cultish”, “sexist”, “controlling”, “pushy”, and “anti-gay””. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/18/us/mormon-ad-campaign-seeks-to-improve-perceptions.html?pagewanted=all

Thought of the Day about Mormonism and Mitt Romney
Romney, Polygamy, Racism and the Mormon Church
Well tomorrow is a big day for Iowa. The elections on Tuesday night (January 3, 2011), are supposed to be a good indication of how the rest of the nation might look for the big vote come this November. Let’s pray that people will make good decisions when choosing who they want to represent this great nation of ours!
Ed Decker’s Discussion about Osteen’s comment on Cross Talk with Vic Eliason
Ed Decker had the opportunity to be interviewed by Vic Eliason, host of the radio show Cross Talk. We thought we’d share the link with our readers for you to hear what other Christians are saying about the comments made by Joel Osteen. It was a great program!
Mormon Ads and the Presidential Campaign
Journal of Discourses 2:182; “Brethren and sisters, our friends wish to know our feelings towards the Government. I answer, they are first-rate, and we will prove it too, as you will see if you only live long enough, for that we shall live to prove it is certain; and when the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they will have to call for the “Mormon” Elders to save it from utter destruction; and they will step forth and do it.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, February 18, 1855
Huntsman, Romney, Mormonism and Name Calling
While everyone’s busy pitching a fit over Pastor Jeffress’ comment this past weekend, the verdict is still out regarding John Huntsman’s comment about Jeffress in an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN this morning. True to form the Mormon side of things took a turn for the worse with Huntsman calling the pastor a “moron” and giving his opinion that Mormonism has nothing to do with the Presidential campaign.

Moroni a Symbol of the Gospel
Gordon B. Hinckley, Heroes from the Book of Mormon, pg. 195; “From my window I frequently look at the figure of Moroni on the tallest tower of the Salt Lake Temple. He has been there since 6 April 1892…When the capstone was placed, thousands of voices joined in shouting, “Hosanna to God and the Lamb.” Later that day the statue was placed on top of the capstone.
Today, strangers who see him wonder who he is…Others are simply puzzled…But he is no puzzle to us. He is a symbol of the restoration of the gospel in this the dispensation of the fulness of times…Of all the characters who walk the pages of the Book of Mormon, none stands a greater hero, save Jesus only, than does Moroni, son of Mormon.”
Is Mormonism a Cult?
That is the question in today’s political news headlines and the word cult alone draws immediate reactions from both sides of the debate.
While Romney is trying to keep the focus on what he’s attempting to accomplish in becoming President of the United States, regular citizens and other politicians are still debating the issue. On Saturday, October 8, 2011, the Value Voters Summit hosted the gathering of conservative presidential hopefuls. A pastor from Texas introduced Perry as a God-fearing Christian and remarked to a reporter that Mitt is part of a cult. As you can imagine his comments raised a few eyebrows.
