You're telling me that I can't have an opinion that is relevant to the topic?
If they cross the line into politics, bye bye tax exemption.

Please don't argue with my opinions. What do you think CD is, it's an opinion board.

Whoa! Calm down there. Did I say you couldn't have an opinion? All I said what that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has broken no laws and that all churches should be made to play by the same rules.

Aren't you concerned about Harry Reid trying to do the same thing? I'm afraid I simply do not understand your concern.
Hey there. I hope he wins the candidacy.
I actually like the two Mormons running much better than the rest of the lot. As odd as I think the religion is, the other candidates scare me much more. The Mormons do not appear to be fanatics. Heck, they even believe in science. They each seem to be rational.

Lightbulb Pastor to GOP: Don't vote for Romney because he's Mormon

If Romney wins the GOP nomination, this might be an opportunity for the Republican Party to separate itself from the loony religious right. Their uncomfartable "alliance" with these small-minded fundies is leading to the GOP's destruction.

Yes. I believe in competition, and today's Democrats seem to have little, which leaves Obama taking big donations(or raising them for his party) from the very industries that have caused the current downfall of this country. I cannot vote for Obama again. He is finally starting to look presidential, when it comes time for his re election. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice . . .

We could really use a Republican with his head screwed on right. I think Romney is it, if he can get past the nut cases in his party.
