Atheists Launch Billboard Targeting Romney’s Mormon Faith‏

But no comments on Omama's professions of Christianity

American Atheists (AA), a non-profit devoted to advancing a secular cause, has, once again, launched an anti-Mormon campaign.

The organization’s new billboard in southern Florida takes specific and pointed aim at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s faith. The message, which is intended to negatively frame The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, invokes both homosexuality and race.  The billboard reads, “No Blacks Allowed. No Gays Allowed. Shame on Mormonism.”

Dale Jones, a spokesperson for the church, dismissed the ad in an email to CNN, writing, “This group seems not to know that there have been black members of the Church since our earliest history, and there are many faithful gay members of the Church today.”

By flip-flopping on the gay marriage issue, Obama inoculated himself from criticism of his Christian (and Muslim) roots. Let's face it - they don't hate people of faith as long as that faith doesn't actually affect their political views!

The Mormons should erect other billboards saying, "no Jews allowed, no Christians allowed, no Muslims allowed, shame on atheists..."

The only way to defeat the Left is to use their own tactics against them...

More attacks upon americas relegious freedoms by leftists special interests

Mormon beliefs are even more crazy than standard Christianity. If a Mormon became President, the standing of the US would nose-dive even farther, unless MR kept his religion very very quiet (but then what would have been the point in having or sticking to such a weird religion).

Arnt Mormons palgamists?

I wonder if this organization is aware that many prominent liberals, such as Harry Reid and Mo Udall, are also Mormons. . . Of course they don't. Fact-checking gets in the way of the agenda.

Yes, they believe in polygamy, but forced to suppress it. Something they have in common with Muslims (and ancient Hebrews).

At least Romney won't go around the world bowing to every towelhead he meets.

Wow - just goes to show you ignorance and bigotry is rife amongst American Athiests and posters to Tongue Tied.
Anon 3:07 - if the religious affiliations of President Obama didn't hurt the standing of the USA internationally the religion of Romney is definitely not going to.
Anon 3:26 - no, Mormons (as that term is applied to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) withdrew polygamy from the doctrines of the Church about 120 years ago.
Anon 3:44 - completely wrong. The doctrine was withdrawn by the only authority that could do so. It is not 'suppressed' - any member of the Church who is found to be practicing polygamy (even in countries where it is legal) will be removed from the Church.
The worst thing is that people are so ready to believe the worst about a religion that is even more American than apple pie.

Leftists hate all forms of relegion KARL MARX was the most evil men of his days

Anonymous 3:07,

In case you haven't noticed, it's not Mitt Romney making the big deal about his Mormonism, it's Harry Reid (a Mormon himself) and others on the left and in the media that are trying to raise it as an issue.

No one should be disallowed because of religious beliefs.

6:11 & Brian:

Thanks. Factual comments are always welcome.

6:11 - you are so naive, but then wishful thinking and/or religious affilations tends to make one so.

Anonymous said...

I think 2:51 means religious brainwashing makes one rather biased. But governments should deal in practical secular concerns and "theology" should remain in the realms of speculation and fantasy.

The big difference between Romney's claim of being a Mormon and Obama's claim of being a Christian is that Romney claim is true.

Anonymous said...

So how do you prove that?

Anonymous said...

If the weak, gullible, and totally brain-dead American people didn't mind electing a Muslim as their president, why would they be bothered by a Mormon?

Anonymous said...

Obama doesn't claim to be a Muslim, but Romney does admit to being a Mormon. Reid also may claim to be a Mormon but he isn't running for the Presidency of the USA.

Anonymous said...

Obama never claimed to be a Muslim, but he DOES claim to be a Christian. Yet his actions, ethics, and policies do not jibe with Christian teaching.

Anonymous said...

Obama's only claim to Christianity is that he supposedly spent 20 years attending a racial politics centered church of "Rev. Wright" whose radical sermons must have been slept through by the future president. He certainly doesn't act like a Christian.

"Yet his actions, ethics, and policies do not jibe with Christian teaching."

Just like the RCC child predator priests.

Anonymous said...

Obama (peace be upon him) indeed claims to be Christian:

"I have a job to do as president, and that does not involve convincing folks that my faith in Jesus is legitimate and real."

"...[Michelle and I] are both practicing Christians..."

"But, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it’s also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated."

There is no court to decide who is, or behaves as, a real or true Christian (or Scotsman).

Scary Harry Reid

@Anon 5:07 AM, only the court of public opinion. And that is the court who will judge in the upcoming election. Unfortunately, half of the judges agree with our president's deceit, and thus the real opportunity for four more years of dragging this country down further and further until it is so weak that his Muslim brothers can sweep in and take over.
