It’s Mormon in America
City Journal [New York], by Joel Kotkin

Original Article

Posted By:supersid, 10/20/2012 9:41:25 AM

Whether or not Mitt Romney makes it to the White House, his candidacy signals that Mormons have arrived in American political life. Just as President Obama’s nomination and election marked a sea change in the country’s tortured racial history, so Romney’s nomination has changed religious boundaries that have persisted for more than 160 years. No religious group has been more persecuted by the U.S. government, or more derided by other faiths present in the country, than the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (or the LDS Church, as many Mormons refer to it).

Comments:
The best advertisement for Mormonism is the kind of society it creates, notes Kotkin, stressing the importance of education, ambition and charitable giving that make Utah a magnet for development and STEM jobs.

I like the part where the author says there was a "sea change" in America's tortured racial history. The change was that blacks and whites are more divided than at any time in American history. There were certainly pockets of violence in slave days (Nat Turner, John Brown) and in civil rights days, but they will pale in comparison to the divide coming between whites and blacks if Obama wins again.

I am not a Mormon, but I have been involved with the Boy Scouts for over 55 years. The LDS Church encourages their boys to participate in Scouting, and the adults are very active in leadership roles.

I have to wonder what America would be like today if more families were to encourage their children to join organizations that promote such a value system, helping the youth to make responsible decisions.

God help America, we cant survive another four years of this un-American socialist; communist; apparent head of the mooselum brotherhood who covers for the terrorist involved in the horrible Benghazi Deaths. The CIA document just released proves Obozo/ Hilderbeast are criminally negligent and there is no way for them to ever get the innnocent blood off their hands..

Fast&Furious another Obozo/Holder deadly impeachable offense against America and Mexico that result in over 300 lives lost

My instructor in AF Jet pilot training was a Mormon and he was everything that Mitt stands for ... a God loving family man with a concern for his fellow man, hard working,a heart of gold, no cusing, no drinking, no lieing etc Someone a young man of 23 like me looked up to as a role model

I'm not a fan of Mormonism, but all the Mormons I've known have been upstanding, trustworthy people.

Frankly, I'm surprised the slime merchants on the left haven't tried to bring up Romney's religion as an issue. Maybe that's coming, now that their appeals to the feminist base are falling flat.

I stopped in a fast-food restaurant for lunch the other day. At the table next to me were a father and his son who appeared to be about 10-11. They were talking and filling out a paper for an organization the boy wanted to join. It may have been the Boy Scouts. I wish every father and son were like these two. They talked about values and what the boy wanted to do as he grew up. It was such a great discussion between the two. The boy then mentioned some things he'd like to do that would prepare him for his mission. As they left the father thanked the boy for having lunch with him and the boy also thanked his father for inviting him. It was so refreshing to see this and I really would like to see the whole family and their interactions. We need more fathers/sons like this. Who is teaching the fatherless boys how to be great men?

I believe the Mormons have long been hoping (and 'praying') to get one of their own elected President of the United States, perhaps hoping they will finally receive the "respect" they feel they deserve. The old saying, "Be careful what you hope for" comes to mind, because not only will the liberal, atheistic, media be all over them because of their uber-morality and belief in a 'god', but now there will be millions of people seeking to know what Mormons really believe (not just practice). That will be a great opportunity for Christian evangelism to occur. It's important for everyone to understand that the Jesus and God of Mormonism are NOT the Jesus and God of Biblical Christianity. Belief in their faux deity does not give salvation. Only faith in the God-man, the second member of the eternal Holy Trinity, who took the form of sinless man to bear mankind's sins in His body on the cross, that Jesus Christ, does that, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

By the way, being called a "religious bigot" is a badge of honor for a practicing Christian.

Reed Smoot was elected US Senator from Utah in 1903; he was Mormon. There are currently 12 Mormons serving in Congress, most famously Harry Reid.

I'm Mormon, and I'm Christian. Lots of folks claim that me and my fellow adherents aren't Christian. That's unfortunate. But as long as my Savior Jesus Christ believes I'm a disciple, I really don't care what anybody else thinks.

I've known many Mormons in my life. My sons have Mormon friends. I returned to my Catholic faith about ten years ago, so I have major theological differences with the Mormons, of course. However, Mitt's got my vote and Mormons in my community have my support. Here on the Northern Plains, their church isn't as common as in California, but I see missionaries around once in awhile and I'm glad for their presence. They add a positive influence wherever they go.

My beliefs are very different from the Mormon beliefs - but every Mormon I know is an outstanding citizen and great contributor to society.

To be honest I am voting not on social issues (although I care very deeply about the state of our society) as much as economic issues this election - if we don't turn this ship around financially and grow more jobs (and I am not sure we can, really) we will not have to worry about the religion of our neighbors or elected leaders.

I'm a Christian next door to BYU for the last five years. It's a great place to raise my kids on my own. I've had to work hard to keep things going and stay off welfare, and having a safe and sane environment to do it in is greatly appreciated.
Mormons have got the whole clean living and good works thing down pat. It certainly does fulfill the laws of Moses and brings about a blessing on earth, though it doesn't answer the question of eternity.

I've experienced niceness here...though no one will allow us into their hearts or homes.
There is a great deal of hypocrisy, arrogance and favoritism...not much different than what I've experienced within the evangelical community. It's called sin. Everyone is infected.
Mitt may be decent, hard-working fellow who has the smarts to keep America working after all the damage Obama has done, but he's no god...no one is or ever will be.

Men are brought forth in history to change things, but it is the prayers of repentance and the awakening of truth in the heart of the people that bring them forth. That is the reason I have hope. Mitt will be a good leader for a necessary time in our history.

How do you know? Did you read their dog tags?

Many Mormons serve in the military just as do Catholics, and Lutherans, and Pentacostals and Jews and damn near any religion we can think of.

Snarky is for the Dems.

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic and Republican leaders reached final agreement on a deal to reopen the government and extend its borrowing authority into February, with votes in the House and Senate possibly to begin this afternoon, according to aides familiar with the negotiations. Senate Republicans have gathered for a final review, but lawmakers have given no indication they will block it. A government shutdown into its third week yielded virtually no concessions to the Republicans other than some minor tightening of income verifications for people obtaining subsidized insurance premiums under the new health care law.

Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death.

Just when I thought the George Zimmerman "trial" couldn´t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state´s "theory of the case" is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it´s something.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
