The Last Prejudice

I'm ashamed of those running for the Republican nomination. I truly thought they were above that.

So Mitt Romney is a Mormon, so what. Grow up folks. I have never heard in any of his speeches that he intends to convert the country to his religion. We should listen to what he says and how he has lived his life. I admit that I don't know too much about the teachings of Mormonism, but I do know that they don't advocate killing non-believers.

What really saddens me is that way back in the day when his father was active in politics and attempted a run for president there was no mention of his religion (at least as far as I can remember). And that was back in the dark ages of the 60's.
Why have we become so afraid of one person's religion. Shouldn't we judge him on his record, how he has treated people?

Now for the disclaimer. I am not a Mormon, I am a Roman Catholic and I haven't made up my mind on my favorite Republican candidate, but this week I prefer Herman Cain.

It's time for all those Republican's who want to be president to stand up and denounce any religious prejudice that is so prevalent now.

I must say that I believe the Mormans are a cult since they follow the teachings of a man who just claimed he got his words from God but this is very questionable. I am for Rommey at this point. We must have a moral and just man and a real American for pres.

"You will know that we are Christians by our love..." Many Mormans that I have known reach out and care. They seem to be good people. Some of their beliefs are not mine. I'm comfortable in my own Faith to be able to let others have their own beliefs.
