He not only pays tithing, he baptized a DEAD man into the Mormon church!

Shock headline from the Daily Mail (UK):

How Mitt Romney’s family baptized wife Ann’s atheist father into Mormon church a year AFTER his death  “Questions are being raised about Mitt Romney’s religion as it was revealed that he helped baptise his adamantly atheist father-in-law years after the man had died. Recently-discovered records show that, in keeping with their controversial tradition of posthumously baptising non-Mormons, a ceremony was held to invite Ann Romney’s father Edward Davies into the Church of Latter Day Saints one year after he died…”

Priceless.  This amount of free advertising for the church is PRICELESS.

No, the ‘I am a Mormon” ad campaign is not to help Romney get elected.  Romney’s candidacy is to help the Mormon ad campaign.

Everyone expects a politician who says he prays, but not one who fasts.

Romney made his own choice to run for President, which may or may not have been inspired.

The Church made its own choice to run the “I am a Mormon” campaign, which I am convinced was inspired.

There was no collusion between Romney and the Church either way, at least not on this side of the veil. This does not rule out the likelihood that the coincidence of the two campaigns was providential.

The Romney Campaign is looking at the prospect of having atheists denounce him and salivating.

at this rate, the mainstream media will have taught half the missionary lessons by the end of the primary season.

I hope ‘slinger is right. Sharing a ride to the temple man years ago, I asked a woman in my ward who I didn’t know much how she came into contact with the church. It was a tabloid news program about the Hofmann forgeries and bombings. Each description of the church—led by a prophet, new scriptures, temple rituals—left her thinking that she could be a member of a church like that.

I heard that back in the 1970’s, baptisms went up in cities after a Donnie and Marie concert.

(That’s Donnie and Marie _Osmond_, for those of you too young to remember their TV show.)
