Park Romney: Why he turned against the Mormon church


Park Romney

Mitt Romney, the front runner in the race for the Republican Presidential nomination for the White House, is a devout Mormon, but his cousin, Park Romney, also in the past a committed member of the church, now denounces it as a cult.

"I became convinced that it's a fraud," Park Romney told the BBC, explaining his reason for leaving the Mormon fold.

The two visions of Mormonism the Romney cousins present could not be more starkly opposed.

Park Romney, 56, is a former Mormon high priest, who turned against the church. ...

Mike of NY, I don't see you ever saying anything nasty about the Republicans?
Mike's comment (on this very page) about Romney's impotence regarding the debt may not have been "nasty" but was certainly critical.

Jim Lincoln wrote:
One used to be able to tell what party that a politician was in, the Democrats suffered from sexual sins, and the Republicans from theft, unfortunately the lines have been blurred recently.
The "blurring" as you call it really started in the late 1980s when pro-life Democrats (Al Gore perhaps being the most significant example here) began to disappear and pro-choice Republicans started arriving on the scene. I know what you mean even though your observations tend to be anecdotal or stereotypical, there is some truth to them that can be seen.

Maybe I'm lazy but I much prefer Mike's succinct way of laying out facts AND backing them up than having to slog through 2 or 3 links to try to get to whatever point you're trying to make.

Just sayin'.

Mike of NY, I don't see you every saying anything nasty about the Republicans? I have certainly condemned Bill Clinton. I seem to have mentioned it would have fine with me, if he had been impeached, not for moral sins but for allowing the important secrets fall into the hands of the Chinese. I seemed to have condemned Jimmy Carter very often especially for his attacks on Israel! He should have been kicked out of the Baptist Church where he is misleading a Sunday School class for years. Being from a family that was Republican from the Civil War --yes a Northern thinking Republican, not a redneck--I would say I have been very even with both parties. I can't help the leadership of the Republican Party has gone nuts, and fallen into their old ways exemplified by Tammany Hall.

One used to be able to tell what party that a politician was in, the Democrats suffered from sexual sins, and the Republicans from theft, unfortunately the lines have been blurred recently. It is getting worse all the time when you have cross-dressers in the sin variety so you can't tell who is which.

Good response, Jim. Easier than dealing with the facts, I suppose.

Difference between myself and you, Jim. I know both parties are pathetic, whereas you only find fault with one, and are an apologist for the other. Please if you would be so kind, post where I kept "telling us how upright and Christian the Republicans are." Or just keep emoting if you wish.

John Y., I have no doubt that a President Romney would work at decreasing the debt. I also would doubt that the debt will go away even under a string of Republicans. 5 Presidents Who Raised the Debt Ceiling. By the way, the opening paragraph for that article:

"Congress has tinkered with the debt ceiling, the statutory limit on amount of money the United States government is authorized to borrow to meet its legal obligations, a grand total of 78 times since 1960 - 49 times under Republican presidents and 29 times under Democratic presidents."

Since there was so much a bed sharing with regulators and financial institutions, especially during George "Enron" Bush administration, we are in a depression which takes a lot of money to get out of.

Yes Mike of NY keep telling us how upright and Christian the Republicans are, we all do need a good laugh.

The debt would not be eliminated under Romney but it sure would start to go down gradually over years until it is eliminated. But elect Obama for a second term and it can be guaranteed that the debt will not decrease at all. As long as there is a Democrat president the debt will not be eliminated. The only hope for the debt to be totally eliminated is for there to be no more Democrat presidents and for there to be no more Democrat politicians in Washington D.C.

Romney is going to get the Republican nomination for president. So there will be two choices. Elect Obama for a second term and keep the debt going up and the economy going down or elect Romney and have the debt go down and the economy go up.

President-elect Obama was so anxious to bail out the banks that he asked President Bush to ask the Democrat Congress to release $350 Billion of "TARP" money so it would be readily available when he took over the presidency. That was in addition to his own forthcoming $8oo billion "economic rescue" plan. But keep on talking about Republican whores of financial companies, Jim. We need a chuckle now and then.

I answered the question of John Y., quite well. I at least won't vote against Obama if Romney gets a more acceptable position on universal healthcare. Depending on who is the Republican candidate and their position on that topic, will determine if I vote for Obama are not.
In this state, except for the congressional district of Omaha, it doesn't matter which way I would vote, because this state is definitely a "Red," state rather then a "Blue," state.
By the way, did the news media label Republican states, "Red," states for being rednecked? And blue states for being blue-collar? I always associated red with people with Socialist motives.
It is a sin for anybody to vote for Obama considering that Obama is for abortion, birth control, homosexuality and every other perversion under the sun. So the only other alternative presidential candidate is Romney because Romney will get the Republican nomination for president.

Understandable then why red should be used for the Democrats. In fact, if your memory is long enough, you'll find it was used for the Dems, and blue for the Repubs. You can look it up if you like.

Red vs Blue

As for Obamacare, maybe the Supreme Court will do what it is supposed to do, and render this unconstitutional piece of anti-American junk, unconstitutional.

Liberals have a vision.

Conservatives have none. Look at the Primary mess Republicans are stepping in. You can hear a huge sucking sound as they circle the bowl.

"Without a vision the people perish."

Wager: Obama by 10 points in November.

two globalist puppets running for office, and we will now argue over which one is better because one is 'liberal' and one is 'conservative'.

and onward will advance agenda 21 (which the contradictory
'conservative' is yet to even investigate)

the contradictory 'conservative' didn't want a constitutional candidate after all, and wants to play in the muddy pit with all the other special interest groups vying for her piece of the empirical pie.

John Y., You really should read the article, A Mormon in the White House? 10 Things Every American Should Know About Mitt Romney. A very evenhanded commentary, I would say. The writer of it, didn't Like the Way, Romney flip-flops. If Romney goes back to a support of universal healthcare that the practiced in Massachusetts, this would be a flip-flop I would certainly approve of.

Strange in a way, when you look at Obama, he's the first president to approve of a nuclear power plant in 30 years, he's the one that nailed bin Laden, and he's the one that helped stop the collapse of the American auto industry. Besides of course, basically putting in the earlier Republican health care plan. Republican Origins of Democratic Health Care Provision.

I have always pointed out that Romney was the best of a bad lot, you can be certain that I will vote--against--Rick Santorum or Ron Paul. However, November is quite a few months away yet, so I don't really have to make up my mind on that as it is.

Are you stating that you would rather have Obama in the White House for another 4 years than have a Mormon in the White House? Romney is going to get the Republican nomination. So it is better that Romney is president over Obama anyday.
