Neoconservative Jingoism Plus Mormon Delusion Equals Perpetual War

If he's elected let's pray Romney isn't a good Mormon! Let's hope he's faking it!

The danger to our military families posed by having a man in the White House whose knowledge of the world seems to only extend to avoiding military service, tax shelters, investing in Chinese sweat shops and a stint as a missionary in France, comes from the fact that to be a good Mormon one has to be jingoistic and combative about foreign policy.

someone with enough insight to realize the truth, enough literary ability to write it and enough balls to publish it

Blind religious fanaticism and a belief that you are right regardless of any evidence to the contrary brought us the Crusades in which the west invaded another country with no justification. It brought us the Inquisition in which anyone disagreeing with the bosses was tortured and put out of his misery by being burnt at the stake. It brought us innumerable wars in which both sides prayed to the same god, both sides being convinced that they were on the right side of god and on and on it goes. It also brought us the Catholic church which believes it is above the law of man because of their special relationship with god and that it is the right of their priests to bugger little boys with no consequenses. What does it take for us to wake up to the perniciousness of this belief in the sky fairy started by a tribe of stone age nomads who followed those amongst them who heard voices in their heads. Today, we seek treatment for people who after hearing voices decide to cut the throat of their first born. Incidentally, the original word of god to the Mormons espoused a man having more than one wife. Young boys, with no prospect of finding a wife within the faith were cut loose shortly after puberty to make their own way while the bosses collected an ever renewed harem. How nice for them. Now mainstream Mormons believe otherwise. If God is all knowing, all just, all seeing, how come he changed his mind. Comeon folks. Wake up and smell the flowers. We often hear the argument that without religion we would have no moral compas. Really??? How many of you take all that is in the bible for your moral compass. If you do, you are fine with incest, genocide and a raft of other unpleasantness. No, you use your inbuilt moral compas (I hope) to decide which of the dictates of the bible to follow. The word of Jesus is a pretty good framework for a working society but how many of you really follow his teachings.
