I've always known that Mittens was a total piece of shit - given that he belongs to that cult of sub-human scum bags known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but this just beats all.

That said I'm busy engineering a leveraged buyout of the Buzz as we speak.

I'll lard this bitch up with debt so quick your heads will spin...

I am not LDS myself, but I happen to live in a community with many great people that happen to be LDS. Like all people in various faith groups and non-faith (myself included), there are both good and bad people. I share your view that Romney is a no-good dirty rotten bastard that should never be our president, but there are also great people such as Senator Reid that share his faith and completely disagree with Romney's view. Just saying, it's offensive and irresponsible to call out someone based on their religion.

After learning about the book of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I don't really have any sympathy to them. I am glad sometimes they have a great family life but no one who believes a religion made up by a con-man should be making decisions for my well being.

Have you ever bothered to research the history of the LDS church, specifically how they came to change the name to "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints"?

Let's just say that prior to the governments desire to rid the globe of these parasites back in the 30's, the Book of Mormon contained not one fucking mention of this fellow named Jesus.

Well guy, I'm a direct descendent of Mormon pioneers, and an excommunicated member of the LDS church, so suffice it to say I know a bit more about the church and it's membership than you ever possibly could.

They all put on a big white smile and act all friendly in public, but behind closed doors their attitudes towards the rest of the world are decidedly different. Romney is such a natural liar because he's been living the lies of his faith and for his faith all his life, same as all scumbag mormons.

Pretty sure you were excommunicated because your head is poking out of your giant ass, which enabled your tongue and voice box to engage.

That would actually qualify one as Mormon royalty.

And again, it's awfully cute how you follow me around like a little puppy dog.

Now then, what I came here to post - a follow up interview with Matt Taibbi about the article, another interesting read.

Lol. To presume that the LDS is any worse than the Catholic church is laughable. Still, it doesn't change the fact that Mittens and his company worked the system like a bunch of secret service members working the Colombian brothels. He has no interest, what so ever, in sharing the American dream. Rich fat cats don't get rich by spreading the wealth and using government responsibly. They do the exact opposite scream "oppression this" and "socialism that" when they're caught in the act of stealing from the cookie jar.

Catholics are far more moderate about their faith. Catholic excommunication is a joke in comparison and rarely exercised. Catholicism is more established and it's far harder to outright disprove the basic facts and tenants of faith.
