Romney asked about Blacks and the Mormon Church *Video*

Posted by   + Show Post

I don't really care about Blacks and the Mormon Church but I thought it was interesting how Romney handled the questions.  Check his last appearance in the video; he hesitated a long as he searched for the "right" way to answer the question to satisfy the reporter.  He should have been better prepared to answer that question.

You decided that's what I sound like. 

I actually sound as if I'm saying the man makes it a point, all on his own, to make some sort of religious reference or statement almost every time he speaks, especially when he's speaking abortion or gay rights.

Listen, he can talk about that stuff all he wants; I'm not trying to stop him.  I learn a lot about him when he does that.

I do not believe it is right to focus on religion when this is a political race. Everyone can find good and bad in all religion.

I agree.  I sure wish Romney would stop referring to his religion The only time Romney mentions his religion, is when people ask a direct question about mormons/his religion and expect an answer.  Then he is forced to answer, or suffer the consequences of his silence. Your statement makes it sound like he is preaching momonism from the podium. Not true. but I've never heard him say anything bad about it and to his credit I can't recall his saying anything bad about anyone else's religions.

I've never met a Mormon that I didn't like. ;-) 

You don't have to sell me on the Muslim religion. My neighbors are...they're kind, decent, peace-loving, hard-working, patriotic Americans looking for a better life.

It's the zealots and extremists (in every facet of life) that we must be vigilant of.

Hey. Nice to see u over here. I happen to agree about the morman-bashing. My dads whole family is morman, theyre not bad people, I just dont believe it. I think you can take any religion and make it bad. The same goes for Muslims. They're religion is really beautiful and loving, people take it out of context and make it evil. You can do the same thing with the holy bible. BTW, did u know that muslims believe in Jesus and they believe in the Holy bible?

I cant remember the guys name. but did you hear about the republican that said if slaverys so bad, then why didnt jesus or paul say nething about it? I dont hate people just because im told i should. i have reasons. im actually prolife. i have 4 kids and had 2 miscarriages. for me it was like losing 2 babies no matter what anyone else says. i did like what biden said about abortion. he takes his church's view in his personal life, but doesnt think he should impose those beliefs on other people. i dont want people to have abortion. i lost my temper last night and called someone a babykiller cause she was bragging about aborting twins. but its really none of my business

Another one who doesn't lose sleep over the truth.

This post isn't about religion; it's about Romney refusing to acknowledge his church once excluded blacks from joining,about how he couldn't say that's all changed and quote how many blacks have been accepted into the church. Why should he give statistics?  If you want to know, research it.

Did I say I wanted to know?  I couldn't care less.  It's not as if I intend to become Mormon any time soon or know of anyone who does. 

I'm just saying; he's volunteered all kinds of other information about Mormons, he can volunteer how active the Mormons have been recruiting and welcoming blacks into the church, just because he's so darned proud of them when directly asked.  I smh every time someone gets indignant when someone wants to discuss a topic they talk about if the discussion goes where they dare not go.

I'm sure if he knew any black Mormons he'd have said so. No, he isn't going to list names. 

Heh.  Don't act obtuse; no one asked for names.  How many times do I have to tell you not to put words in my fingertips?

I recently went to visitors day at a temple, and saw many black people in attendance.  

You really went to temple, and among ogling and admiring the architechture and art and "the word", you counted the many black people in attendance?  How many is many?

You are questioning Mitt's relationship to the history of a religion, that did not accept black's in the past.  

How about asking me what I'm questioning? 

But do you question Obama's relationship and influence from his own communist parents?  

I'm not questioning anything; I said here he is in a video fending off questions about the history of excluding blacks in the Mormon Church.  He loves his religion; loves being Mormon, he should love saying how much they've grown as a religion  I also pointed out how long he hesitated when asked if he believes everything in the Bible.  It's just stuff that made me go, "Hmmm..."  The President's parent's were communists?  That's a new one for me.  I'm used to people "accusing" the President of being socialist.  If his parents were commies, why haven't people been accusing the President of being a commie?
So is it in the President's books his parents were communists? 

I doubt you care.  

It's odd you went to political ideology from a discussion of religious ideology.  I don't care Romney is Mormon, why should I care what Romney's parents did, if they did that?  You haven't provided any proof.  You guys seldom provide any proof of what you say.  You just say it and expect it to be taken as gospel. 

Am I supposed to be upset at or afraid of Communists?  Nevermind; that's not the topic of my post.  If you want to accuse the President of having Communist parents, create a post and go nuts.

It's about how Mitt did not immediately say he believed the whole Bible or instead saying something about how the Bible is ancient and that it includes practices that are not currently condoned by today's society that he doesn't advocate such as stoning people to death or polygamy. Wow, he took about 1 second to gather his thoughts, so as not to make a zinger that dems were waiting for, and you still question him.  You probably know, the bible is a very hot topic, with people accepting and not accepting many parts of it.  You couldn't get Obama to say anything much different than Romney.  

One second?  Try a pause so long it was becoming palpable.

Romney refers to his religous beliefs, a lot.  The President does not.  If he did, I'd be questioning him, too, and so would reporters but he doesn't, so they don't and I don't.  Romney's set the precedence.  He shouldn't have done so without being ready with answers to any questions people could possibly ask.  That's called being prepared for anything.


It's a post about how Mitt practices avoidance and is willing to refer to his religion but when others ask about it, he acts uncomfortable and uncertain. Again, as many times as I've heard him, I havne't heard him mention his religion unless he was asked a question.  He is not uncomforatable or uncertain, just cautious about how things could get twisted by the left.  Perfectly understandable.  You are really looking for something devious, that just isn't there JonJon.


Devious?  That might be how you think but it's now how I think.  I see and hear things that bring certain thoughts and questions to mind.  I share my thought processes.  I share information I find.  Easy peasy, simple pimple.  I don't think Mitt is devious when it comes to religion.  I don't believe he really knows all that much about his religion but that doesn't make him religously devious.

The only reason she is focusing on religion because it is Romney. Biden is a practicing catholic. But, he supports abortion. I won't hold my breath for a clip on Biden.

I haven't heard that one about slavery...but he sounds like a buffoon. 

I don't hate anyone...even the die hard foes with whom I lock horns. It takes up too much energy and is bad for the soul. Life is too short.

Hey look, at some point we all lose our cool. I can passionate with my views. Don't beat yourself up over it. I always say- "It's politics, it isn't personal".

God forgives. Let Him.

I'm sorry for your losses. ((hugs)) :-(

Thank you, Connie Jo.  I don't much about Mormons, at all so I really appreciate your honesty, open-mindedness and willingness.

It must have been so hard to break with the church (and your family?) but you're so brave to stand up for your principles and for yourself.  No one can bat you around and guilt you more than family.

Quoting conniejo75:

Since you seem sincere in your questions I will answer them... I will not respond to any other hateful comments that others have.
1. I was born and raised into a Mormon family... in CA mostly but I also lived in UT and AZ for parts of my adult life.
2. I was Mormon until about 2 yrs ago technically but had not been to church in about 10yrs. I am 38
3. I only remember a handful of black members /families... but I will say they have always been allowed to be members but we're not allowed to hold priesthood or go to temple. I do not understand a lot of what happened. But I will say all of US history has things we are not proud of when it comes to treatment of different races. Also I think a lot of blacks still feel the church won't allow them in even though they stopped all limitations about 30 yrs ago.
4. I left for various reasons but main one being the church's involvement with same sex marriage bans. I know a lot of Christians feel same sex marriage is wrong but I felt strongly I could not be part of a religion that was so outspoken about it. I am also bi and at the time I was dating a woman. Again I do not judge anyone who has those beliefs but I made this choice to stand by MY beliefs.
5. It is a twist on the previous beliefs. The church believes EVERYONE has a spirit and can be "saved" by baptism just like other Christians. There is no such thing as "bad" spirits being born to other races. As for polygamy... yes it was a means to bring more of God's children into faithful families. But most religions believe parents are responsible to raise their children in their faith. Also when Mormons were being persecuted and ran out of states.. that is what led them to UT... a lot of men died and women were left without husbands. Due tothis, worthy men were allowed to take on additional wives (and their children). Back then women were dependent on men. It was not like the cults forcing teens to be married off. To be honest I have no issue with polygamy when consenting adults.

Quoting JonJon:

How exciting to have an ex-Mormon participating.  I almost called you bunny because your sn looks like conejo which is Spanish for rabbit, Connie Jo.

May I please ask some questions? 

1)  Where did you live as a practicing Mormon?

2)  How many years were you a Mormon?

3)  How many black Mormons were in your congregation or whatever the group at your temple was called

4)  Why did you leave?

5)  NW's statement is propaganda will you please make corrections to it? 

6)  There's no truth in what she wrote, at all?

It didn't just exclude blacks. Mormons believe(d) in polygamy because heaven has all these souls that need bodies therefore it was important to have as many babies a possible.

Hi JonJon,

Let me ask you a question: Why do some churches, like Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ, and some Nation of Islam mosques, teach Black Liberation Theology, which holds that society and the government today favor white supremacy today, that black people are better than all other people, that all white people are racist, and that the governmental-socio-economic order needs to be overthrown?

It wasn't easy and I have told only a few family members that I officially left the church. The majority just think I am inactive. When I told my mom I am big she didn't speak to me for a few weeks but came around. I chose not to tell extended family I am bi... but I am not currently dating a woman either. What's hard is when I post pro same sex marriage articles and I have family that post religious comments in rebuttal.

Quoting conniejo75:

I do not believe it is right to focus on religion when this is a political race. Everyone can find good and bad in all religion.
