UPDATE: In 2012, when Romney is the frontrunner and potential nominee, remember this::::::
The Captain over at Capt’s Quarters is basically fair minded, he does a nice job knocking down some really disgusting smears of McCain.
However, in arguing against Ron Paul as a VP candidate (like that would ever happen in this universe) he is still on about Ron Paul’s newletters and the John Birch type racist and Jew-bashing diatribes that were released under his name:
I don’t think the man who can’t explain the racist and anti-Semitic passages that appeared in his own newsletters over the course of 17 years can be called a “straight-talker”. And no one who blames American foreign policy for the 9/11 terrorist attack would ever get support in the GOP, and probably not in the Democratic Party, either. Even without that, Paul always had just as much chance of winning a major-party nomination as any other sitting Congressman, which is to say none at all..
Why are the racist and anti-Semitic “passages” in Paul’s newsletter fair game but no one is allowed to talk about the racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic slanders in The Book of Mormon, which Romney professes to believe literally and try his best to live by, to the word?
I’ll be happy to provide links to annotated passages that are as disgusting and hate-driven as any in Paul’s newsletter, and Mormons teach this stuff to little kids.
From ex-Mormon.com, the site on which ex-Mormons relate their stories and explain why the excesses of the cult forced them to rethink their allegiance to Mormonism and finally leave the cult:
My friend was driving her daughter and her daughter’s friend home from pre-school, and passed by a church building of another faith. Her friend’s daughter observed, “That is not the true church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is it?” My friend confirmed that it was not. The preschooler continued, “So we don’t go to that church, do we?” My friend answered no. After a moment of thoughtful reflection, the young girl concluded: “I think it is the great and abominable church.”
You know, the one “created by Satan” and run by “the Great Whore of Babylon”; the Catholic Church. Taught to pre-schoolers. And the Republican party wants to have to defend this kind of stuff?
The “holy underwear” nutso aspects of Mormonism are nothing to its racist, sexist and intolerant underpinnings that make up the very core of the cult. The idea that Americans will be able to push that aside and elect Romney is just risible.
