Today on Athenae’s Obsession with the Freepi: Romney Edition

The speech does not impress:

I am very PRO Israel. I just don’t want someone that doesn’t believe in the Messiah as the most powerful MAN in the world.


Respectfully, get over it. Mormons are Christians. 🙂 Values, values, values! 🙂


Now, I really don’t care if Romney worships the sun instead of the Son, but it will be interesting to see what kind of oath he takes should he become the POTUS.


Yes mormons believe in another Jesus who was born as a result of sexual relations of a man with a woman…that is not a virgin.


The USA was meant to be a Judao-Christian country, it is those values which the Constitition, and our freedom rests. Destroying that foundation is destroying our nation. We see it crumbling all around us in step with the crumbing of faith in this nation.

People shouldn’t be fooled into thinking (some joyfully) that when Christian faith vanishes, the nation will be free from “religion”. Like any vaccum created when a substance is removed from it’s space, whatever is surrounding will rush in to fill that void.

Welcome to Islam America.

Awww.

I especially like the one who’s all “I love Israel, just not those non-Messiah-believing Jews in it.” So … civil.

    Is that last commenter actually saying that if we elect a Mormon president, we’ll become Islam America?
    And, dude, no, there won’t be a “vacuum” if “Chistianity” disappears, and there are waaaaaay more options than “Islam” to replace it. I guess there aren’t that many options if you’re an authoritarian prick, though.

    By any chance, are the comedy writers who are on strike using their time to post really strange comments?

    Which book to use for the oath of office seems more important than the fucking oath of office! Gads, will these lemmings ever wake up?

    He or she brilliantly comments “it will be interesting to see what kind of oath he takes should he become the POTUS.”
    The Constitution says it has to be this one:
    Article II, section 1
    Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    DJ, DJ, DJ…you actually expect a Freeper to know what the Constitution requires?
    Srsly, though, AFAIK, the whole “hand on the bible” thing (which is, I suspect, what the Freeper meant. Eew. After that dip into the Freeper brain, I need a serious shower…) is just a matter of convention. The preznit-elect gets to choose the bible, I believe, and I’m betting nobody would notice if you substituted a nice, ancient, leather-bound Complete Works of Shakespeare.
    Which is exactly what I would do.

    I did not watch the speech (I rely on you guys to do that) but this statement is wrong…I’m one of the few Mormon Democrats, but I do know my faith. We believe Christ was born of Mary and the Father (not from relations with a mortal man) and don’t ask me to explain exactly how it happened, I take that one on faith.

    A perfectly good just-so story already exists for how gods and mortals can produce offspring. The most famous iteration of the tale is usually called “Leda and the Swan.”
    It’s funny how when you’re outside of everything, all religions look similar…
