Secular bigotry

Postby prorobert8 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 5:28 pm

The recent assault on religious freedom from the Obama administration in the HHS mandate is giving me chills about whether the mobs of the old days might come back. I have heard creeping anti-Mormonism,anti-Catholic, and anti-Semitic speech coming out of Occupy and I know it will intensify if Romney wins the nomination and presidency! Should we Latter-day Saints stand with other faiths who are under attack? Im trying to raise awareness in my ward but it seems that people are asleep and dont care! What can i do to shake other members out of their slumber? I hope im wrong but i think we are gonna experience persecution real soon and i think that our Catholic, Evangelical, and Jewish brethren are gonna be key allies in this fight! What do others think?

I think Santorum is such a religious not job all Romney has to do is stay moderate and peopel will gravitate to his liberal approach to religion.
As much as I detest Mutt Romney as another LDS Snake Oil salesman, like Covey, I don't think this will particularly damage perception of the church. On the contrary actually.

Romney is hardly as moderate in his stance as he once was. Perhaps he has adopted a more conservative stance in order to obtain the nomination which he might otherwise not get due to his actual record?

Romney is decidedly Pro-life, Pro-Parental Notification on Birth Control for minors, and Anti-Stem-cell research. He supports the overturn of Roe v. Wade. That's hardly a moderate stance.

Romney is decidely Anti-Gay as well, supporting DOMA, opposing gays serving in the military, and opposing gays adopting children.
That's certainly not a moderate stance.

Romney is Pro-Capital Punishment, anti-Gun control, anti-drug legalization, anti-Obama-care.
Where's the moderate stance in any of this?

Only in his fiscal policy might he be said to be anything close to moderate, and certainly not liberal.
