Romney’s Mormon faith, or Gott Mitt Uns

We have faulted the mainstream media for their singular unwillingness to confront former Mormon Bishop Mitt Romney about the peculiarities of his religion, one allegedly revealed through a “seer stone” translating some golden plates in Egyptian hieroglyphs found buried on a New York hilltop.

What concerns us is the explicit prophecy in Mormonism that the president of the U.S. and the head of the Mormon church will be one in the same, and will lead the nation to take over the globe at the apocalyptic moment, ushering in the Mormon millennium, when Mormons will be gods and go off to cdreate their own worlds.

Given that the very secretive Romney has a shot at the job, we’re glad to see that at least the alternative media are picking up the story.

From Alternet:

Watch Mitt Romney get in a heated exchange with a radio host  from a radio interview in 2008 about where Jesus will reign and rule over the Earth for 1,000 years — in Jerusalem and Missouri. Romney displays deep familiarity with the thinking of a Mormon hermit-conspiracy theorist Cleon Skousen, who was also Glenn Beck’s great inspiration.

Background from Prisoner Minister: “Mormons believe Jesus will return to earth in Independence, Missouri to begin a 1,000 year reign.  They think Mormons will at that time become gods.  But before the return of Jesus, they believe the United States will come to a constitutional crisis, on the verge of collapse.  They believe America will be saved by a Mormon leader. The founder of the Mormon religion, Joseph Smith, said, “The time will come when the destiny of the nation (USA) will hang upon a single thread.  At that critical juncture, this people (Mormons) will save it from destruction.”  Their prophet Brigham Young said, “When the Kingdom of God bears rule, the flag of the United States will proudly flutter.” Mormons, also called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), believe the Kingdom of God will arise from the rule of one man on earth, a political figure who will also be their spiritual leader.  They believe there will be a one-world government ruled by this god-king. He will be a prophet and high priest of the Mormon faith, ruling the world from America.”

And from vlogger Zac Barr, consider this little bit of Mormon history:

And reporters, if you’re going to address candidates by former offices they’ve held, how about using the phrase “Bishop Romney”?


One response to “Romney’s Mormon faith, or Gott Mitt Uns

  1. Romney also is not just some rank-and-file Mormon following the faith of his parents and enjoying the church’s rituals. Rather, he is a former church bishop who comes from Mormon “royalty” with ancestors dating back to the earliest followers of Joseph Smith, including Parley Pratt and Miles Romney, the church’s first architect.
