Sad but true. I look forward to the day, if it ever happens, when people just won't give a damn what holy book a POTUS swears his oath on, if any at all.Romney's critics think he'll swear the oath on The Book of Mormon.
Romney's supporters think he'll swear the oath on the Bible.
Obama's critics think he'll swear the oath on the Koran.
Obama's supporters think he'll swear the oath on the Bible.
Bottom line: Critics of either Obama or Romney are complete idiots on the question of what will the oath be sworn on.
Why in hell would an atheist swear on a copy of The Origin of Species?Well, even though he didn't, I wouldn't say it'd be better. It'd be equal. I do however wonder what will happen should we ever elect and atheist President. Wonder if he'll swear in on a copy of The Origin of Species.
Also, there's no H in bazinga. At least not in the way merchandising spells it for the show Big Bang Theory.
I assume that is why the are called Mormans and not Catholics (or whatever)..... Bottom line, they believe that Jesus Christ is the "savior" (that would be the Christ part of "Christians") so why wouldn't they be called Christians?Mormons are as Christian as Jews are, the main split is that Mormons believe in 3 distinct Gods whereas Christians believe in 1. The Holy Ghost, the Father and Jesus to mormons are all distinct entities and are not the same, but united in their "purpose". Im not a religious person but thats a huge difference from mainstream Christianity, its enough to be its own religion.
There are huge differences,No, there really isn't. Biblical canon isn't agreed on. In light of the fact that "traditional Christianity" can't tell what's supposedly divinely inspired and what's made up, the Mormon claims about their books don't stick out.
Likewise with their saints.
If you want to list all of the Christians killed by other Christians, we're gonna be here a while.
No, you use the Joseph Smith Translation version of the Bible.All Mormons read the Bible. We use a King James Version. The coming of Jesus Christ to the American Continent is a very important part of the Book of Mormon. Since we believe in Jesus Christ, it doesnt matter if you think we are Christians or not. As far as I am concerned it is your personal problem if you dont think Mormons are Christians. There are plenty of people out there who look for reasons to hate people. That is nothing new. Christian is just a word. Doesnt matter that much.
Maybe it is better to be known as a Mormon. Everyone in politics claims to be a christian. It does not mean that much. Never met two christians that could agree on anything when it came to religion.
Which just shows just how much of a sheep the average person actually is that such a thing is used to judge, explaining the success of Conservative Talk.It's a dislike of people who disingenuously adopt a label in an attempt to make their cooky and falsifiable cult seem mainstream.
