MEMBER DIARY

Hear me now if you DARE! – A Redstate Mormon speaks out!

PREFACE
This diary came from a comment in response to the honorable Mr. Rooster aka – The Gamecock of Gamecocks, the DeVine of Redstate, and as such my considered friend indeed.

PRE-AMBLE

The failure of Mr. Jeffress to articulate his response to a gotcha question is most regrettable.  Make no mistake, the object of the media question was to drive division on a potential nominee among the base of Republican voters.  Failure on the part of Christian Pastors that attempt to wear two hats in both the fellowship of their faith and their calling to witness for Christ, while attempting to explain why it is better for Christians to vote for a non-Christian rather than a “false christian” is by very word and deed a judgement pronounced on a fellow Christian, not the Mormon.

It is without a doubt a REAL issue for some, if not many, Christians to vote for someone that does not share their personal faith.  I have always been of the position that YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION on the matter.

But let me be clear… I vehemently DISAGREE with your OPINION.  AND IF YOU’RE WEAK MINDED STOP READING NOW!

{FROM THE VERY COMMENT LINKED ABOVE — With Expansion.}

NOW — FOR THE REST OF YOU YELLOW BELLIED-TURNCOAT WOULD BE DEMOCRATS!!!!

Please ALLOW ME to introduce you to your LOGICAL FALLACY!!!

If you will choose a Christian over a Mormon for Political Office due to THEOSOPHICAL, THEOLOGICAL, DOCTRINAL, differences… Then let me Air the reality of your IGNORANCE.

You DANCE on a MIGHTY slippery slope.

I am NOT defending MITT ROMNEY politically… I am on Record as a Perry supporter, and secondary CAIN supporter… so let’s get that issue out of the way…

But I simply ask you this…

If Mitt Romney is unfit to be your president due to his religion… than WHAT PUBLIC OFFICE is ANY MORMON fit for?

Where do you draw the line?
Is it in the Senate? TOO LATE. 

See (Berkely Bunker – Democrat of NV, Howard W. Cannon – Democrat of NV, Jake Garn – Republican of UT, Orrin Hatch – Republican of UT, Paula Hawkins — Republican of FL, Bob Bennett – RINO of UT, Mike Lee – Conservative of UT, Mike Crapo – Republican of ID, William H. King — Democrat of UT, Frank E. Moss — Democrat of UT, Gordon Smith — Republican of Oregon, Reed Smoot — Republican of UT, Elbert Duncan Thomas – Democrat of UT… etc.)

Is it in the House? TOO LATE. 

(Ron Biship, Jim Hansen, Jim Matheson, Chris Cannon, Delwin Morgan Clawson, John Dolittle, Jeff Flake, Jim Gibbons, Ralph Harding, Harner Budge, Goerge Hansen, Ralph Harding, Ernest Istook, David S. King, Howard Nielson, Wayne Owens, Norman D. Shumway, Richard Stallings, Richard Swett, Morris King Udall, Stewart Udall, Eni F.H. Faleomavaega… etc.)

Is it in a prominent cabinet position in any Presidential Administration? TOO LATE.

(J. Reuben Clark — Undersecretary of State, Angela “Bay” Buchanan — US Treasurer, Ezra Taft Benson – US Sec. of Agriculture, Terrell Bell — Sec. of Education, Larry EchoHawk — Head of the US Bureau of Indian Affairs, Mike Levitt — US. Sec of Health and Human Services, David M. Kennedy Sec. of Treasury, Rex Lee U.S. Solicitor General, Ivy Baker Priest — Treasurer of the US, George Romney Sec. of Housing and Urban Development, Stewart Udall, Sec. of Interior… etc.)

Is it in an Ambassadorship? TOO LATE.

(Jon Huntsman Jr. — Ambassador to China,  Robert S. Beecroft — Ambassador to Jordan, Richard Swelt U.S. Ambassador to Denmark etc. and I know its short, but there’s likely more).

Is it in a Governorship? TOO LATE.

(Many Utah Governors, including the Territorial governor Brigham Young… Both Romneys,  John Evans of ID, Jim Gibbons of NV…etc.)

Is it in a State Legislature? TOO LATE. (TOO DANG MANY TO LIST)

Is it in a Municipal Governmental role? TOO LATE.

(Joseph Smith Jr – Mayor of Nauvoo IL, Delwin Morgan Clawson — Mayor of Compton CA, Brent Coles – Mayor of Boise ID, etc… name a city in UT, probably was once run by a Mormon…)

DO MORMONS FAIL TO QUALIFY FOR MILITARY SERVICE? TOO LATE.

(I dare you to say that to anyone of them! Bruce Calrson — Four-star USAF General, John R. Lasater, USAF Brigadier gerneral, Robert C. Oaks — Four-star USAF General, Brent Scowcroft, Three-Star USAF General & National Security Advisor under Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush – Co-author of Bush’s autobiography, Paul A. Yost Jr – Four-star USCG Admiral, Joseph W. Dailey, 5th Sergeant Major of Marine Corps, John R. Massaro, 8th Sergeant Major of the Marin Corps, MANY MANY MORE, but of note… Corporal Harold Engstrom — Former School teacher – After 9/11 joined the Army… his research and role in Army intelligence led to the capture of Saddam Hussein.)

DO MORMONS FAIL TO BE GOOD NASA Program Participants?

(Ron Dittemore, Director of Space Shuttle Program, Colonel Richard A. Searfoss – Space Shuttle Commander… etc.)

DO MORMONS FAIL TO BE GOOD CITIZENS AND PROTECTORS OF LIBERTY? TOO LATE. 

(President Gordon B. Hinckley – Medal of Freedom Recipient).

DO MORMONS FAIL TO BE GOOD MEMBERS OF REDSTATE? TOO LATE. 

(Yours truly, and others, should they name themselves so be it).

Finally, what this is all about… Have MORMONS FAILED TO BECOME PRESIDENT? 

Yes they have — (Joseph Smith Jr., Fmr US POTUS CANDIDATE, George Romney, Mitt Romney(at least once), Sen. Orrin Hatch, Bo Gritz, Jon Hunstman Jr.(well technically he hasn’t failed yet, but let’s get serious), and possibly someone else, but I’m not sure…)

ALLOW ME TO DRIVE IT HOME FOR YOU

You’re TOO DAMNED LATE FOLKS… NOW IF YOU WANT TO VOTE FOR A CHRISTIAN OVER A MORMON FOR RELIGIOUS REASONS…  THAT IS YOUR PREROGATIVE.

But I think you’re ignorant of the Liberty that our Founding Fathers gave you!!! And in my mind you do not deserve to call yourself a Conservative… because Conservatives espouse Constitutional Protections, which intended to prevent establishing a Church Runned State… Despite the argument that there are denominational differences among Christians… You can’t tell me that we’re not a Christian Nation… at the same time you can not tell me the Founders would reject any man or woman for office by religious test!!!

DEAL WITH IT YOU LACKLUSTER TURNCOATS…

You want to prove to me that you are a Conservative and a GOODLY Christian? THEN SPEAK ABOUT THE ISSUES, SPEAK ABOUT THE POLICIES, SPEAK ABOUT THE OPPOSITION TO LIBERTY…

HEAR YE ME NOW — The Media wants us divided… they see that Romney may be the nominee… and they NEED your soundbites if that is the case… SO THEY MAY De-spirit us into NOT TURNING OUT THE BASE!… Even if Romney doesn’t win, at what cost will the nominee be painted with religious zealotry and bigotry to turn away the Prominent Mormon candidates?… Fair or not, the Media will use it all to their advantage to prevent us from TURNING OUT THE BASE… or Paint us as extremist religious zealots… What will be the effect? I don’t know… but what I do know… We’re all better than this!

LIVE BY THE 11th Commandment… THOU SHALT NOT SPEAK ILL OF ANY FELLOW REPUBLICAN.

And which Prophet, Seer, and Revelator gave us the 11th commandment? Well it was Gaylord Parkinson…

BUT POPULARIZED BY:

Ronald Reagan A CHRISTIAN, and A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, THAT TRUSTED MORMONS!!

“Ronald Reagan truly admired the Latter-day Saints. His administration included more members of the Church than any other American president, ever. Three of us, David Fischer, Gregory Newell and I, served on his personal White House staff. Richard Wirthlin was his chief strategist. Ted Bell served as Secretary of Education, Angela Buchanan was Treasurer, Rex Lee was Solicitor General. His White House included Roger Porter, Brent Scowcroft, Richard Beal, Blake Parish, Jon Huntsman Jr., Dodie Borup and Rocky Kuonen, and there were many other Latter-day Saints throughout his Administration. President Thomas S. Monson served on a Presidential Commission on Volunteerism. Others were ambassadors. LDS senators and representatives were held in special regard, and the Tabernacle Choir was his special inaugural guest.” -Stephen M. Studdert, Special Assistant to President Reagan

Have at it… Speak now your peace to me, Lob what you will at me…

I’ve seen detractors come and go, I’ve seen anti-mormon sentiment in the face of Christian and Non-Christians alike… I’ve seen putrid arrogant hate filled speech directed at people for the cause of their faith… and I think its cowardly and despicable.  HOW PATHETIC CAN YOU BE TO HAVE TO DENIGRATE ONE RELIGION… RATHER THAN DECLARE YOUR OWN BELIEFS WITH CONVICTION!!

I do not believe that all Christians share your views, and I don’t believe that Christians that can’t consciously vote for a Mormon due to their religious practice are mean spirited… It is your opinion.  I have laid out mine.

Thank you for your time.
