The Salt Lake City Tribune just endorsed Obama. Again. Even though Mitt Romney saved Utah from eternal embarrassment over that whole Winter Olympics thing. Even though he’s the most famous Mormon since Gladys Knight lost her mind and decided to convert. Even though he has more money than God. He’s still clearly the inferior candidate.
Has nothing to do with his tax evasion and offshore banking. Romney just feels his donations to the church are private and he doesn’t wanna embarrass anyone. He also makes perfect sense whenever he speaks and I completely believe every word he says. This man is so logical and honest and forthright and trustworthy, I can’t imagine how anyone could have doubts about his candidacy.
You can watch it if you want, but I just skipped around. I do not have time for crybabies.
I give Zero Fucks when I read some news story about gay people taking their gayness into spaces where it is clearly not wanted and then complaining that it’s not wanted. Nobody made you go there. You don’t get to voluntarily go someplace where people don’t like you and then complain that they don’t like you.
…Edward Davies, Ann Romney’s Welsh father, was an engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur who worked on designs for the Gemini space program and helped outfit aircraft carriers. He eventually became the mayor of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He was also a resolute atheist who insisted that his family be raised without participating in an organized religion. “He would say: ‘I’m a scientist, show me the proof’,” a former co-worker told the Telegraph. Davies thought of religion as “drudgery and hogwash,” according to Boston Globe, and his son Roderick told the paper that Davies “considered people who were religious to be weak in the knees.”
He broke down at a concert last week to say he was taking a break from music to do a traditional, two-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can watch the video from TMZ…
…but really all you need to know is he’s putting his singing career on hold “not because somebody told me that I was supposed to do it, not because that I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because it’s the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life.”
I’m not saying it has anything to do with the fact that he got dropped from his record label, his last album sold seven copies, and he has nothing better to do right now. Nah, I’m not gonna say that. But what is a Mormon mission anyway?
Just when gay marriage is starting to gain ground with some important victories, here comes that damned Sister Wives cast from TLC trynna make polygamy all good and legal.
Kody Brown is a proud polygamist, and a relatively famous one. Now Mr. Brown, his four wives and 16 children and stepchildren are going to court to keep from being punished for it.
The family is the focus of a reality TV show, “Sister Wives,” that first appeared in 2010. Law enforcement officials in the Browns’ home state, Utah, announced soon after the show began that the family was under investigation for violating the state law prohibiting polygamy.
On Wednesday, the Browns are expected to file a lawsuit to challenge the polygamy law. (cont.)
I would just like to point out that eighty black people have NO BUSINESS rolling up through Mormon Country, ever. Do you know there are people out there who have never seen colored folks up close and personal? That the only exposure they have to black people is Eddie Murphy movies and COPS? That they really think you are either gonna tell a joke or rob them?
Everywhere the bus went, people would STOP AND STARE at the negroes invading their White Promised Land. Old people stared, women pointed, babies cried. I am not exaggerating. Y’all. We went to Wal-Mart and couldn’t even find black people hair grease. It was time to go. But it was really time to go when we turned on the TV in the hotel and the first news story we see is about some black dude getting shot. Yes, soon as we get there, the Only Black Man In Utah gets shot. It was really really time to go.
But we did win a few thousand dollars in that tournament though. So take THAT, white people.
I am over all of this birth certificate bullshit. Every five minutes somebody’s calling for Obama to show his birth certificate. Now people are wondering if “mitt” is actually Mitt Romney’s given middle name or if he made it up. I’d much rather focus on the fact that this horrible budget squabbling has led to the further disenfranchisement of our nation’s po folks while rich people continue to get richer.
But if we wanna play Distraction Politics and have entire newscasts devoted to talking about things that don’t mean shit, let’s not focus on birth certificates. I’d MUCH rather talk about the fact that Mitt Romney is a mormon. A mormon for goodness sakes.
I could be politically correct and show due respect to all religions, but I already have problems with people running the country who believe in fairy tales like talking snakes and people turning into blocks of salt. That is a problem for me personally, but I haven no choice but to sit by and watch them spew their religious dogma all over my civil liberties.
But a mormon???????????????
I’m sorry, but mormons are on a whole nother level of crazy with Jehovah’s Witnesses and 7th Day Adventists and whatever other derivatives of Christianity you can come up with. And here’s why: not only did you have to buy into all of the Craziness of Christianity, but you made up extra! There is no need for extra foolywangishness. The Bible already has enough absurdity without you adding your extra brand of WTF.
If you don’t know anything about mormons, in a nutshell here’s how it started. Some backwoods frontier Christians from upstate NY were all about some religious fervor in the boonies. One of em starts getting couple of visions. In the first, Jesus tells him “you’re forgiven for everything you ever did!” (I thought the Bible covered that already, but okay). In the second, an angel is like “so…I wrote some stuff down a long time ago about how Jesus led the Native Americans over here and taught them The Wayz, but war and savagery made them forget :-( Still, I wrote it on some gold tablets and buried em in the dirt so go dig em up and translate them and you can basically be a new Pope.” So he dug em up, translated them to his wife, and that’s the mormon Bible basically. Then they all moved to Utah, took a bunch of wives, and built a big ass organ in Salt Lake City.
What the pure fuck.
Sidenote: I don’t understand polygamy. Don’t you end up with A LOT of single men? If you have 50 men and 50 women but each guy takes 3 wives, you got 33 dudes who are just gonna be shit outta luck. Did the mormons not have a firm grip on math?
And that’s Mitt Romney’s religion. This man wants to run the country and make laws for me to follow but we’re more concerned with whether his middle name is actually Mitt.
