I’m not sure I’m a Romney fan and it has nothing at all to do with his faith. But if his religion is going to be an issue, then were was all the vetting about Obama’s 20 years of pew sitting in the Black Theology church?
There is no comparison between the anti-American movement in Rev. Wright’s church and the LDS faith of Romney. The Mormons are pro-America and pro-family and pro-community. Wright’s church is anti-every single thing that IS America. No one questioned this (aside from Hannity and a few others on the right) when Obama was running for office. No one took issue with this unAmerican theology that he listened to for 20 years.
I’d rather have a Mormon in office any day, over what we have now. I can count on one hand the number of times that Obama has been to church since he took office. And polls show that there are still a number of people who don’t know WHAT this president really believes in – aside from communism. At least there is no question about Romney.

During the presidential campaign, a lot of people insisted that Obama was really a Muslim pretending to be a Christian. I wasn’t one of them. I did figure, though, that if my name was Barack Hussein Obama and I was going to run for president a mere seven years after 9/11, I wouldn’t admit I was a Muslim, either. On the other hand, I, personally, would have sooner trusted a Muslim who’d been attending a mosque in Dearborn for 20 years than a Christian who’d been attending a racist, anti-American church in Chicago for all that time.
Anybody, after all, can claim to be a Christian. The proof, in the words of that fabulous effing wordsmith, Joe Biden, is in the pudding, and when I learned that among Obama’s friends and mentors were such notorious anti-Semites as Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rashid Khalidi and Father Pfleger, it certainly kick-started my suspicions about his religious convictions. Still, as I saw it, when in Chicago, you do as Chicagoans do. And, that being the case, I figured that in such swampland, even if a saint were to wade into Chicago politics, he would eventually be knee-deep in snakes and alligators named Tony Rezko, Richard Daley and Bill Ayers.
On 9/11, in complete contrast to what the day has meant historically to this country, Obama asked us to surrender the traditional meaning of the day into a day of service to our neighborhoods, our community and our country.
Why on this day of all days, did he try and require us to preform a service to our neighbors and communities? Could it be that he, like his followers, believe that we have to atone for something? That we are doing some sort of penance for a wrong we’ve committed?
Does he, in his heart of hearts, believe like most of the lunatic left, that we brought those attacks on ourselves? Remember the words of his minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright: “America’s chickens have come home to roost!”
Because we are a capitalist nation, a nation that believes in individualism and is not a Islamic theocracy, were we somehow asking for this to happen? Does he honestly believe that those almost 3000 innocents died because we somehow deserved these attacks?
Does this explain his Islamic world apology tour last spring? Is this why he wanted school children to write letters setting goals on how to “serve their president?” Is he trying to set a new tone for Americans?
It seems to fall into place for me. I’ve become a real cynic since this man took office. So many things he does and says feel like part of a grand, secret scheme to me: This “Christian” president has not found or attended church since taking office, except for a funeral. He did not honor or recognize the National Day of Prayer. But he did honor Ramadan by hosting a White House dinner for Muslim Americans.
And as an aside, it’s interesting to note a couple things: his vacation officially began on Monday, August 24th – Ramadan began on Saturday, August 22nd and the word Islam means surrender and service of oneself to Allah.
