Former Mormon Explains Why Mitt Romney Should Never Be President

"Romney" "Mormon" "LDS" "Should never be president"

Written by: James Martin (former LDS and strongly against Romney for reasons as listed below)

(EDITOR’S NOTE: We’re sharing this opinion of Mitt Romney, written by a former member of the LDS Church, unedited and uncensored. Addicting Info is not endorsing this article, or attacking the LDS Church, but we would like to give James Martin a forum to share his unique perspective.)

Romney:

The first thing you need to know about Mitt Romney is that he is a Mormon, aka a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They call themselves Christians, but they have so thoroughly brainwashed their members that anything the church says…goes. No matter how much Mitt Romney says he would keep his church separate from Government, and how he would never let the church come in and run Government, commands of the church come first and foremost in Mormon minds.

If the church wanted Mitt to let them come in (AND THEY WOULD) and help or direct the Government, that is how it would be. Why? Because the church leaders would supposedly have a “vision” that it is God’s will. The church is all about trying to prop up the image of its founder, Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith had a supposed vision (prophecy) that one day a Mormon would become President of the United States, FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE, of letting the Mormon Church take over the U.S. Government. You can take it to the bank, that if Romney were President, the church leaders would have another “vision,” that a church takeover must happen. By the way, that prophecy was simple revenge for perceived wrongs done to Joseph Smith by the government. Nevertheless they treat all his prophecies seriously, no matter how ridiculous they are.

The only other church I know of that elicits such obedience was The People’s Temple, and we all know what happened there, they drank the Kool-Aid. In other words, the Mormon religion is a cult of brainwashed souls.

Mormons duck out the back door of the church as quickly as they come in the front door. The number of people on the church rolls rises all the time, but that’s because even if you join and then decide the church really isn’t for you, they still continue to count you as a member. Unfortunately this trend doesn’t apply to the “old school” Mormons like Romney. They’re totally entrenched into the religion/cult.

Some of the freaky Mormon beliefs are:

Mormons have a member “stand in” for a dead person and they’re baptized as a member of the church.

Mormons have a couple “stand in” for a dead man and woman and marry them into the church, and those count as a “twofer” in church membership rolls. Supposedly they’re “sealed for time and eternity” as husband and wife. Mormons are also supposedly the only ones who will be allowed to have sexual intercourse in Heaven.

Mormons believe that God was once a man here on earth and that he attained God-hood due to his “good works” here on earth. He was then elevated to live on the planet Kolob. This is why the Mormons stress “good works” as part of their membership. But here’s the rub! How could God create the earth according to the book of Genesis (which their other teachings do NOT dispute) unless he was ALREADY a God, and then attained God-hood through “good works?” If you truly are a Christian, does this all sound a bit weird to you? And no I’m not kidding you, these things are core beliefs of the Mormon Church. They all are from the false prophecies of Joseph Smith. You see, it’s easy, if you know all the facts, to tell why Mitt wants the White House so badly.

One of the tenants of the Mormon Church is to have as many babies as possible. So this goes hand in hand with Romney’s stand against abortion AND birth control. If you’re not popping out a new “Mormon Unit” every 12-18 months, you’re not having enough unprotected sex.

It also explains why they stress getting a good education, so they can make enough money to support all those kids with the mother being a “stay at home mom” like his wife Ann. Yet he wants to cut and privatize education. This is one of the Republican strategies to keep the voting public too dumb to see the truth.

Back when I was a youth in the church, we were taught that black people were descendants of Cain, and that the dark skin was the curse God put on him for killing Abel. Black people were to be shunned at all cost. We weren’t to be rude about it, but we weren’t to associate with them. This racist “teaching” is no longer part of Sunday School, because a few black people threatened to sue the church for racism and discrimination because they were not allowed to join. Suddenly the church elders had another supposed “vision” that blacks had paid their penance (still indicating they’d done something wrong) and they’re now allowed to join. But they were not allowed to hold church offices, so the threat to sue was renewed and lo and behold another “vision” comes down the pike and blacks are now allowed full membership. I used to go to church with people like Donny & Marie Osmond and their family. I KNOW they were raised to be racist. In my opinion, to be raised racist and suddenly have your church tell you that you must do a full 180 and love and embrace black people is a total mind-fuck. (Excuse the one word, but nothing else seems to convey the gravity of the situation)

Christians don’t believe that God changes his mind to fit the times, yet this is what the Mormon Church is saying he does. A further example of this is that Joseph Smith said polygamy was an “everlasting covenant” from God, but the government said that if Mormons continued to practice polygamy, Utah would not become a state. If you look up the words everlasting, and covenant, you can see once again that God SUPPOSEDLY changed his mind just to fit the times.

Mormons wear “special” undergarments. For reasons too long to go into, suffice it to say that they believe this underwear protects them from evil and gives them mystical powers, as well as making their bodies more visible to the spirits when the rapture occurs. There are symbolic cuts in the underwear that are the same as symbols of being a member of the Masons. Also many of the secret ceremonies, hand signals and handshakes are derived from Masonic rituals.

  • Romney wants to be President to fulfill a cult prophecy. When Mitt Romney received his patriarchal blessing as a Michigan teenager, he was told that the Lord expected great things from him. All young Mormon men — the “worthy males” of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it is officially known — receive such a blessing as they embark on their requisite journeys as religious missionaries. But at 19 years of age, the youngest son of the most prominent Mormon in American politics — a seventh-generation direct descendant of one of the faith’s founding 12 apostles—Mitt Romney had been singled out as a destined leader. The Cougar Club — the all male, all white social club at Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City (blacks were excluded from full membership in the Mormon church until 1978) — was humming with talk that its president, Mitt Romney, would become the first Mormon President of the United States. “If not Mitt, then who?” was the ubiquitous slogan within the elite organization. The pious world of BYU was expected to spawn the man who would lead the Mormons into the White House and fulfill the prophecies of the church’s founder, Joseph Smith Jr., which Romney has avidly sought to realize.

Economic goals according to Romney’s own book, “Believe in America” Mitt Romney’s Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth © 2011

  • Wants to provoke China into war by labeling the Chinese government as criminals in the world court. Never mind that they own most of our money, they have nuclear capabilities and over a million soldiers. I’m sorry, but we wouldn’t stand a chance.
  • Wants to privatize Social Security and Medicare. They say Obamacare would create death panels, but that’s nothing compared to what it would be if Wall Street controlled medical benefits. And with how well Wall Street has proven that they can screw up even a wet dream, do you really want them deciding how much your Social Security checks should be? I don’t think so. Romney would privatize his next meal if he could.

General plans (from stuff he has said lately)

  • Wants to cut education funding and oversight.
  • As a vulture capitalist, Mitt Romney cost thousands of employees their jobs and their retirement pensions, while he made out like a bandit. If elected president, Romney will kill Medicare and Social Security and further subjugate women’s rights, while destroying the EPA and other government services.

OBAMA is looking pretty good now, isn’t he? Read on, don’t just shut your mind and stop here.

Romney avoids mentioning it, but Joseph Smith ran for president in 1844 as an independent Commander in Chief of an “army of God” advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government in favor of a Mormon-ruled theocracy. Challenging Democrat, James Polk and Whig, Henry Clay – Smith prophesied that if the U.S. Congress did not accede to his demands that “they shall be broken up as a government and God shall damn them.” Smith viewed capturing the presidency as part of the mission of the church. Smith’s insertion of religion into politics and his call for a “theodemocracy where God and people hold the power to conduct the affairs of men in righteous matters” created a sensation and drew hostility from the outside world. But his candidacy was cut short when he was shot to death by an anti-Mormon vigilante mob. Out of Smith’s national political ambitions grew what would become known in Mormon circles as the “White Horse Prophecy” — a belief ingrained in Mormon culture and passed down through generations by church leaders that the day would come when the U.S. Constitution would “hang like a thread as fine as a silk fiber” and the Mormon priesthood would save it. Mitt Romney views the American presidency as a theological office.

  • As someone who grew up with (very nice) Mormon neighbors and over the years has been repeatedly harassed with attempted indoctrination from their (really frightening) quasi-church members, I can unequivocally support every single statement in this article.

    Joseph Smith was a crazy-like-a-fox con artist who duped thousands into his vision of heaven-on-earth. The early saints were no more than ignorant sheeple or egotistical opportunists, depending on their status in the quasi-church.

    In case anyone is interested in reading more, I wrote about this same problem with Mitt’s background and upbringing in my article “The Mists of Ideological Time,” here: http://a-bitofearth.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-mists-of-ideological-time.html

    Do not underestimate the Mormon belief in their right to take over the US government. It’s real, and they are counting on you not to notice. It’s part of their plan.

    I knew when I wrote this article, I knew it would bring out a firestorm of mormons and former mormons who would agree or disagree, depending on the generation they were first indoctrinated into the church. That just goes to show you how: 1. The religion has changed over time, but that the basis is the same, and 2. mormons will go to any length or say anything to protect the secrets of the church.

    I think it should also be said here and now, that even if Romney were a democrat running for president, I’d still write this article.

    I also knew that there would be a bunch of comments from non-mormons who think this article is pure paranoia and that there is no way a president would ever let a church come in and take over. I assure you, that in this case, it would happen.

    I pulled most of my information and assertions from personal knowledge, experience, and reading of church documents before they were locked away in the church vault in Salt Lake City. I also got my information from saintsalive.com and Ed Decker who is even more of an expert than I am on mormon doctrines that have been locked away in the vault and/or changed due to ‘revelations’ by various church apostles at various times in the church’s history.

    The church is as secretive as The Order of the Masons. And the Masons are believed to be a branch of the Illuminati. It is all very suspicious and one should stay far far away from getting sucked in to the delusions of mormanism.

    The fact that I would write the article regardless of Romney’s political party should signal that it is the beliefs and character of the man (Romney) that are what should be called into question, not the motives of who wrote the article.

    Romney is quite simply a vulture capitalist, not a venture capitalist, and then to top it off, he has a mormon agenda that needs to be addressed, and I did it as best as I could through this article.

    For those of you who support and believe in the article, YAY! Thank you for having open eyes. For those of you who think the article is BS, you’re the kind of person who’s mind wasn’t going to be changed anyway, so your opinions mean squat to me. I sincerely hope though, that you will go to saintsalive.com and TRY to prove me wrong. Start with listening to tapes by Ed Decker on debunking mormonism. He’s fantastic.

    I won’t be commenting on any future comments, I have better things to do.
    OH, and vote for Romney at your own peril.

    • If ANY Christian were to read this article or watch the following two videos knowing both are 100% accurate, and still vote Romney, you should evaluate your Christianity Part 1 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVQWwYt1YCE Part 2 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNUj0cJ1Vr4
      There is nothing Christian about LDS. You cannot believe that there is any other parallel to Jesus Christ or believe that someone like Joseph Smith decides your eternity and be a Christian. If Romney were to be elected, LDS would become more powerful that it is today, leading to an LDS theocracy.

  • Romney’s speech at the Evangelical Liberty University may have convinced you to vote for him in November. After all, it is not as if you have anywhere else to go and he does support the same issues as most Evangelicals. As a Christian, you should take notice of Romney’s Mormon beliefs. For those who say that Romney’s religion should play no part in the election and point to JFK’s Catholic religion as an issue in the 1959 campaign as an example should know that there is a big difference between the men. We may have taken a risk believing Kennedy when he told us that his religion would play no part in his decisions as President. Most of us believed him because of his past political record and believed that Kennedy was as good as his word.
    Mitt Romney also made a similar pledge. However, his past record amounts to blind obedience to the “visions” of church elders. Also, you should consider that Romney has consistently changed his stance on issues when it is convenient for him to do so. It seems apparent that he is willing to say anything to be elected. His stance on issues has and will always depend on who his audience is, not on his real beliefs.
    As pointed out by James Martin in his article, the church has from the beginning indoctrinated its Mormon youth that Mormons are destined to take over the government of the U.S. and institute a Mormon theocracy in revenge for the killing of Joseph Smith by gentiles. They believe in what they call the “White Horse” prophesy that says the Mormon priesthood will take over the government when the “Constitution hangs by a thread.” Glenn Beck is another believer in this prophesy. That may sound fine to you, but there is a sinister motive behind it.
    Joseph Smith ran for president in 1844 as an independent, claiming to be the Commander in Chief of an “army of God” advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government in favor of a Mormon-ruled theocracy. Opposing Smith were Democrat, James Polk and Whig, Henry Clay. During the campaign, Smith prophesied that if the U.S. Congress rejected his demands as President, “they shall be broken up as a government and God shall damn them.” It was Smith’s vision that capturing the presidency was a vital mission of the church. Smith had no problem inserting religion into politics and called for a “theodemocracy” where God and people hold the power to conduct the affairs of men in righteous matters.” It is entirely appropriate to point out the Constitution’s very clear demand for the separation of church and state. Unfortunately, there are those who believe that God’s Law (or what they interpret as God’s Law) overrules man’s law. Despite the constant drumbeat by conservatives to save the Constitution (much as Romney’s rhetoric), they conveniently ignore the First Amendment.
    Because of Smith’s “White Horse Prophecy” — a belief ingrained in Mormon culture and passed down through generations by church leaders, Mitt Romney views the American presidency as a theological office (James Martin).
    Before you label me as a religious bigot and should therefore be ignored, you should know that here in Mesa (a city founded by Mormons) I have good friends who are Mormons. The vast majority of them are nice people, good neighbors who rarely speak to you about religion, except for when the young males are on their “missions.” I have also seen the dark underbelly but all religions have this element. The reason for this lack of proselytizing by adult Mormons is partly because they believe eventually you will become a Mormon, whether you want to or not, and whether you know it or not. This comes from their practice of baptizing the dead into the Mormon faith.
    You do not need to believe me, just talk to a Mormon the next time one knocks on your door.

  • As an apostate (former) Mormon, I can say this article is spot on. Mitt terrifies me. I promise you, Mitt Romney views his presidency as inevitable and the fulfillment of prophecy. He will thrust us into a war we cannot win. (China…really?) and the members of the Church also view him as the fulfillment of divine prophesy.
    Scary sh*t, folks.
    Regarding blacks in the Church, I was indeed taught that they were the descendents of Cain and that they’d never hold the priesthood. (Imagine my surprise when I was driving home from a Church event, and the announcement came over the radio that the long-standing ban had been lifted.) This was taught to me at the Sunday School, seminary and at the Institute of Religion, as well as at BYU. I personally know several members who left the Church after that decision. They could not accept that the church would reverse that stance after being taught otherwise their entire lives.
    Another racist belief that was taught is that Native Americans were given dark skin as punishment for the bad deeds of their people. So white=good, dark=bad.

  • Extremely interesting information. I’m not a fan of religion, in general, but some of the assertions in this article are particularly provocative. Romney himself strikes me as not particularly in tune with the realities of this nation.
