    Doggonnit! Started to pull in the driveway and saw the professor getting out of his car. Always too late. Story of my life.

    As evidenced by this thread, the corporate sense of humor of your clientele is the best I’ve seen.

    One of the interesting ironies in the silly and largely uninformed hype over two Christian pastors stating that Mormons are NOT Christians, nobody bothered to note the FACT that Joseph Smith actually wrote that God told him ALL OTHER CHRISTIANS ARE NOT REALLY CHRISTIANS AND THAT MORMONS ARE THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE CHRISTIAN FAITH.

    The theological ignorance of Americans in general, and the MSM in particular, is absolutely appalling…

      Romney’s professed faith is of no concern to me. There is a lot wrong with the man’s policies and history.

      There is no need to get into religious bigotry on anyone’s side.

        Silliest remark on the board. It’s not bigotry. It’s an open and honest assessment of historical Christian thought. When you use words like ‘bigotry’, you are deliberately attempting to stifle debate. That is anti-intellectual and dishonest. You might as well call the man a racist because the effect is the same. When everything that is critical of some aspect of a person’s life becomes ‘bigotry’ then nothing can be discussed. Moreover, there is no absolute truth because everything is of relative value. No right, no wrong. No heaven, no hell. That is idiotic.

        Naturally, you didn’t address the point. The MSM and many RINOs fumed that it is somehow wrong for an orthodox Christian to point out that orthodox Christian theology puts Mormons outside the Christian faith. But it is perfect fine for those same people to ignore the fact that LDS theology puts every orthodox Christian outside the Christian faith…

      The existence of the Book of Mormon is one of those reasons why nobody considers Mormons to be Christian. No more revelation after Revelation,and more significantly, The Bible is the only source of doctrine for Christianity. Mormons have the Bible PLUS the Book of Mormon. Ehhhhhhhhhhhh, no!

        The greater issue is the fact that when Mormons and Christians use the same word, the words have completely different and most often mutually exclusive meanings.

        “I believe in Christ,” is a statement Mormons and orthodox Christians could both say. The problem is that what Mormons mean by “Christ” is completely different from what orthodox Christians mean when we define “Christ.”

        If I say “I believe in Christ” but then define “Christ” to be a bagel then I am not a Christian.

        The problem is very few people have a basic understanding of Christian or Mormon theology. And all too few people want to think about theology. Christianity in America is 3,000 miles wide and 1/2 inch deep. And it leads to problems like this issue…
