Why a Mormon President Might Not Be So Swell

By Bill Maher

On his recent Real Time appearance, Walter Kirn had a lot of insightful things to say about the Mormon Church, but I'm not sure about his claim that if Mitt Romney were -- Kolob forbid -- elected, he wouldn't impose Mormon dogma on government policy.

Now, I don't think Mitt would use Social Security records to secretly baptize everyone in America, although -- now that I think of it -- that's a pretty good plan. I don't think he’s going to use seer stones to make policy ("I see.... I see... school vouchers!") But what about gay marriage?

Mormons hate gay marriage for reasons above and beyond simple bigotry. It's a core doctrine of their faith that a marriage between a man and a woman is the only way you can get the full benefit package, both in this life and the next. This is why the Mormons spent millions to defeat gay marriage in California. What are the chances that a Romney Justice Department is going to pursue gay civil rights cases, or allow gay couples in the military to marry? The NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City won’t even show "The New Normal," that new sitcom about a married gay couple. They didn't reject it because its rife with tired sitcom clich├ęs (sassy black friend, precocious smart-aleck child), they rejected it because it doesn't conform to their religion's requirements for interplanetary spirit tourism.

Don't worry about the Mormons. They have less manpower and community support than the Brown Shirts.
Instead worry about the Goldman Sachs snake cult. Romney is much high up in their order than Obama (and the Clinton pigs). How do you like this traitor's DREAM?
Did Eric Holder actually torture a shortimer to death because of his race, during teflon Willy's tyranny? If so, where was the FBI, and what have they become?

Can someone please ask Mitt Romney if he believes in baptizing the dead? Technically as he is a Mormon bishop we already know the answer is yes. This should worry sane people. Either he is (in the oldest Mormon tradition) a con artist and liar who does not believe this, and has been misleading and manipulating the gullible all his life, which is a concern to us all, or he does believe it, in which case he is a gullible, ignorant primitive who can be duped into condoning and executing any savage act.
Doesn't baptizing the dead sound like witchcraft? I can unbaptize the dead. All I need do is recognize the falsity of this complicated, macabre pagan ritual. Baptism doesn't work, never has, not in any primitive superstitious and false religion. stupid.
What other crazy shit does Mitt Romney advocate? What is his position on blood sacrifice and the spiritual inferiority of non-whites? What actually is white? The uncle tom in chief is no better, but I'd prefer to avoid WW3 - especially if I'm on the list of those to be purged.

A Mormon running for US President is not new. In 1843 Joseph Smith himself tried. Who say's history doesn't repeat itself. You can read about here.
