Mitt Romney, Mormons views on Blacks as a whole.

NO this isn't race baiting, it's an interesting read on Mormonism


-

(ThyBlackMan.com) Mitt Romney refuses to talk about his Mormon faith on the campaign trail and it’s probably a sound political strategy since his religion teaches that black people are cursed by God.Even though the overwhelming majority of African-American voters will support President Barack Obama in the general election over Mitt Romney, black Republicans have been particularly silent about how Mormons view black folks.For decades, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has taught that black people are “inferior” and “cursed” by God because of something sinister that blacks did before they were born.“And [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sorecursing, because of their iniquity,” according to a bizarre passage from the Book of Mormon. “F

    Almost like they cannot help themselves.

  • The story probably comes from a belief that while Eve was out trying to find herself she was accosted by "an ape like being" that could talk who convinced her that she would not surely die if she ate the forbidden fruit. Some versions say the "being" pushed her into the tree and when she didn't die she also believed she wouldn't die if she ate the fruit. Additionally, in another versions the "being" knocked her up resulting in her, but not Adam's, first son Cain. More..

      I never saw it. I actually saw quite the opposite, with Mormons being over the top inviting to people with color. Are there racist Mormons? I'm sure there is as there is in any group.... to even include Blacks themselves.

      Notable black Mormons:
      Since her baptism in 1997, Gladys Knight has strived to raise awareness of black people in the LDS church.

      Thurl Bailey, basketball player and singer.

      Gladys Knight, who joined the church in More..

  • i wonder how this is going to go because from my understanding evangelicals really really dont like mormons not just on the simple superficial things, but rather on a fundamental level in that evangelicals are intensely against the idea that any human can become a god and live among him in heaven his as an equal. also theres a conversion war between the two of them so theres fierce competition for converts. but on some imagined evangelical hierarchy, does a non-denominational christian (though s More..
