Gov. Mitt Romney and Mormonism and the USA presidential race
Date: January 28, 2012 09:49AM
Former Governor Mitt Romney is a well respected Mormon (LDS). I know that "Mormonism" is NO LONGER considered a cult, but it is a "questionable" religion of fairly recent origins (1820's).
Does anyone see his religion playing a role in the US presidential race? Personally, I am apolitical here. This is NOT a political thread. Do NOT post your personal poilitical opinions.
I personally think that once the aspects of the LDS rituals, beliefs (becoming gods and populating planets with their offspring) that this could, on a national scale, hamper someone with national political asperations. There are many politicians in the USA who are LDS. These are local and state elections.
I think that on a NATIONAL scale, the LDS will be a negative in many voters minds.
