The Left will stoop to all kinds of new lows to attack a man of God in an attempt to take him out. Yes, I said Mitt Romney is a man of God. Before all you well-meaning folks tell me I am crazy lets get one thing clear men of God believe and accept the word of God to be true. Yeah I know Mormons believe this and that but in the end they believe in Gospel of Jesus Christ and in the end this is what being a Christian is so bugger off.
Jesus is Son of God. He died for all of our sins and He rose from the dead three days later and ascended to heaven to be with the Father.
The rest of the argument is chump change.

This words are taken from the Mormon website.
“Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. He is our Redeemer. The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ’s mother was Mary, His father on earth was Joseph, that He was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, and labored with Joseph as a carpenter. When he turned 30, He began a three-year ministry of teaching, blessing, and healing the people of the Holy Land. He also organized His Church and gave His apostles “power and authority” ( Luke 9:1 ) to assist in His work.
But what do we mean when we say He is the Savior of the world? The Redeemer? Each of these titles point to the truth that Jesus Christ is the only way by which we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Jesus suffered and was crucified for the sins of the world, giving each of God’s children the gift of repentance and forgiveness. Only by His mercy and grace can anyone be saved. His subsequent resurrection prepared the way for every person to overcome physical death as well. These events are called the Atonement. In short, Jesus Christ saves us from sin and death. For that, he is very literally our Savior and Redeemer. In the future Jesus Christ will return to reign on earth in peace for a thousand years. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He will be our Lord forever.”
I am not a Mormon. I am Jew who believes in gospel of Jesus. I am a messianic Jew.
This is my point. The Left and the Democrat Socialist Party led by Obama are telling us that Mitt Romney is a racist. Mormons hated and still hate blacks. Yet, many of these so-called purists of the Democrat Socialist Party will neglect to tell you that the home of the KKK is the Democrat Party. Senator Robert “Sheets” Bird was a grand wizard in West Virginia. Lester Maddox and George Wallace Democrat Governors used hoses and turned loose German Shepard’s to disperse the Civil Rights marchers in the South.
These little facts are covered up by the present day Democrat Socialist Party.
I receive Emails from the National Black Republicans at least twice a month. I have to share this Email with you. There are several things in here I didn’t know. First Gladys Knight became a Mormon. Mitt Romney’s father marched for Civil Rights.
Here’s the real kicker. LeRoy Eldridge Cleaver started out a member of the Black Panther Party but later converted to being a Mormon.
Thanks you Francis Rice sharing this 411 with me.
Here is Francis Rice’s article in it entirety Prominent Black Mormons.
Democrats consistently push the false narrative that Mormons are racist, while ignoring the existence of black Mormons. Then, hypocritically, Democrats demean black Mormons who step into the spotlight. Witness how Democrats trashed Mia Love, the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and the Republican Party nominee for the United States House of Representatives in Utah’s 4th congressional district. An article that describes the despicable treatment of Mayor Love is “Hate-Filled Screeds Appear on Mia Love’s Wikipedia Page” by Patrick Hobin.
Among the black Mormons not in the political arena and largely ignored is Gladys Knight who became a Mormon in 1998 after her son Jimmy and his wife and children did so. Ms. Knight was successful as an R&B singer in the late 1960s and early 1970s. She now writes and performs Mormon Gospel music. Sam Warren of “The Drifters”, another famous black R&B group of the 1960s and 1970s, also became a Mormon. A well-known black personality who is also a Mormon is the famous college and NFL football hero Burgess Owens. NBA All-Star player Thurl Bailey became a Mormon, too, and now composes Mormon music.
An intriguing historical personality is deceased LeRoy Eldridge Cleaver who went from being a Black Panther to Black Mormon. Mr. Cleaver was the Minister of Information in the early Black Panther Party, a combination of Black Nationalism and Marxism. In 1968, he wrote “Soul on Ice” which became an international bestseller and was once considered the “Manifesto” of black nationalists and white radicals.
Among the lesser known, but influential black Mormons is Jesse Thomas Jr., a former Baptist preacher, who became a Mormon in 1989 and now serves in local priesthood-leadership positions. In 1995 Lee Radcliff, a black Baptist minister who served as a pastor in Chicago and Mississippi for decades, also became a Mormon.
The left-wing media applauds President Barack Obama’s adherence to big government ”fair share” Marxist ideology and downplays Obama’s 20-year attendance in the church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his then anti-American pastor and advocate of Black Liberation Theology, which is essentially socialism or Marxism.
Meanwhile the press cynically stirs up religious bigotry against Gov. Mitt Romney because his faith is Mormonism, a religion that embraces our constitutional principles of free enterprise and individual liberty. This effort to get the voting public to hate Mormons is anchored on the false notion that Mormons are racists. The Mormon denigrators focus on how, from 1849 to 1978, the Mormon Church had a policy against ordaining black men to the priesthood. In 1978, church leaders ceased the racial restriction policy for black men, declaring that they had received a revelation instructing them to do so.
In spite of that old rule about the priesthood, the Mormon Church has always had an open membership policy for all races and today’s church opposes racial discrimination and racism. In 1997, there were approximately 500,000 black members of the Mormon Church, accounting for about 5% of the total membership. Since 1997, the black membership has grown substantially, especially in West Africa, where two temples have been built.
It goes against our constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion to declare that a person is not fit to be our nation’s leader because of that person’s religion. No one has called for Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid to denounce his Mormon religion in order to be the leader of the US Senate.
Now you have to take a look at this from the Obama- Biden website. This story appeared on The Drudge Report. http://barackobama.tumblr.com/post/34165736532/sums-it-up
