THIS PRETTY MUCH MAKES ME SICK

EVANGELICALS WARN AGAINST MCCAIN ROMNEY TICKET...Is it time for Mormons to leave the republican party controlled by bigoted elitist evangelicals(not all)? I think it is time for the republican party to abandon the evangelical right-wing faction of the party if this is how they roll. Religious self-righteous bigots shouldn't be controlling any party...

I'm not so sure it'll be Romney. I'm hearing buzz that's it Pawlenty. It'll be interesting.

Shame.

Romney should be the presidential candidate.
Don't take it personal, Nikki, they've used a person's religion as the most important trait for ages.

I agree 100% with this statement. The religious right has hijacked the Republican party just like they have hijacked their religion. Everything is about them and their views and everyone else is wrong. I hope Romney gets it despite them.

Most evangelicals will be on board. Those that are saying all this are trying to make a name for themselves. My best friend is an evangelical, Baptist as I am an evangelical Episcopalian-yea, go figure!-and we were for Mitt and are onboard with great enthusiam if McCain makes the right choice with Romney.

I also agree 100%. A bigot is a bigot. Hiding behind religion doesn't make it right. And there's that little thing about separation of church and state - I seem to remember that from high school history. I don't want the president or VP to PRAY for me! I want them to run the country!

DB said...

Actually, the more I think about it (and this is from a non-Conservative pov), what is the big deal? He is more conservative than the candidate they put forth. Anyways, he is the VP. The VP is a virtual joke position anyways. Does anyone even have an idea what Cheney does? Or Gore did? They have to run it by the president anyways!

oiy!..shakes head Nik..would they prefer the Messiah Hussein!!

Chuck said...

I have to agree. While I am quite socially conservative, we need to stop letting the Evangelicals drive the party. I think they should have significant input because quite frankly most of their ideals are dead on, abortion, gay marriage, etc. But we are never going to have a perfect candidate, there is no such animal. There will always be a little give and take. I'm simply tired of their whinning and threats to take their toys and go home when they don't get everything they want.

Karen, it does appear like the media is leaning towards the minnesota gov and perhaps McCain, at least he is getting some air time haha...:)N

chatterness...yes it is. nuff said. :)N

Paul, I think you have made a great point. It has been a litmus test for ages. Just like Kennedy mormons will het scrutinized. But in the end let's hope americans with cooler heads prevail! I am so happy to hear from you! I hope you are happy in the cave...you are missed. :)N

DB, I knew we would be on the same page about this...and as usual you have voiced your opinion intelligently and realisitically. The VP spot, may to some be the future Presidential nominee so perhaps this is the fear...and I do believe it is fear, fear of mormons. we are scary! :)N

WHT, you know I am beginning to think so...its pretty moronic! :)N

Chuck, Mormons are dead set against those things as well...but we all have our free agency and an opinion about an issue doesn't a good member make...I do think he was politically loose in those areas because of the state he was running in, however some of those ideals he held over 15 years ago. time to move on...thanks for popping in! :)N

Nikki, I do not understand it. One thing is that these same people never want to really answer what the objection is to Mr. Romney. So, he is a Mormon. I am not, nor will I be. I am confident enough in the way that I follow the Christian faith to the best that I understand it that I can vote for a Mormon that I agree with. He will do much more for the social issues that we all care about than Sen. McCain. That is what we need to explain to these evangelical "leaders". Like I wrote, these nimrods can not seriously want a Christian charlatan, Sen. Messiah Barack over Sen. McCain just because he should pick Mr. Romney. I am beginning to think that it is to gin up more money. That would not be a good thing.

Nikki said...

righty, you are definately the voice of reason out there! doctrinal differences do not mean differences in certain principles! We share so many of the same views it really makes no sense. It must be the Huckabee loyalists who are pushing this...unfortunately. Great comment! let's keep the protest going! :)N

ba and the boys said...

hey db-the vp CAN change the world! look at 'the inconvient truth'. (im being sarcastic)

DB said...

ha! exactly!

EDGE said...

I never liked Romney...not because he's a Mormon, just because I didn't like his stance on some issues.

Kevin said...

It'll never be Romney. Presidents don't like Vice Presidents who could overshadow them.

Nikki said...

Kevin, touche. It is gonna have to be someone who will pale in comparison...which will be hard to find. great comment. :)N
