Good thing Huckabee is keeping this a positive campaign!

As evangelicals we cannot stand for this mormon garbage to get into office. They even believe Jesus and Satan were brothers.
My vote is gods vote, Huckabee 08!
So about 15 days ago, Chase called Mitt Romney "mormon garbage" on Mike Huckabee's official Blog. That is so awesome! Way to go Huck!
This comment has been on Mike Huckabee's official blog for about a Month.

I would never vote for a mormon, they are a cult and not a legitimate religion. Yes, they have a right to exist and run for office, I have a right not to vote for them also. They do not serve the same God as Christians and we might as well elect a witch. Jesus is not satan's brother. Romney honest? No, he is not honest at all. He voted for the brady bill (Governors voted on the Brady Bill?) and the so called assult (spelled wrong) rifle ban, then he joins the NRA and says "I'm for the 2nd amendment". He says he is pro-choice (Romney never said he was "pro-choice". He said he would not change the laws. He said he was pro-life, but would not impose his views in Massachusetts), then he says he is pro-life, but is against the life amendment (no he isn't). He said he is more pro-gay than Ted Kennedy (he never said he was "more pro-gay" he said he would be "more effective" at promoting equal rights (like in work and stuff) than Ted). If Romney or cross dressing, pro-death, anti-gun Julie-Annie wins, I will not vote for either of them (so he will support Hillary?). I like Mike Huckabee and am 100% behind him. I am glad he is running a clean campaign (clean?). I as a supporter cannot call good evil and evil good like some of you all. Reproof, reprove, exhort!
That is so nice of "Pro Gun Christian Iowa" to say that Mormon's "have a right to exist" don't you think? It is also nice of Mike Huckabee to create this forum clearinghouse of anti-Mormon hatred.
11 days ago they tried to warn them about the anti-Mormon material. Here is the link.
12/20/2007 11:59 PM
Are you guys aware that several of the "Bloggers for Huckabee" blogs on this page are loaded with anti-Mormon material? That's probably not the best way to support Mike, unless you think that's in-line with Governor Huckabee's message.
It is unfortunate that their aren't more people like Spencer C on Mike Huckabee's website. Click below to learn more about stuff on Mike's website…

"Many people automatically assume that those who disagree with the premises of the LDS Church (Mormonism)…are motivated by hatred and are therefore, anti-mormon. But it is my hope that thoughtful people will look beyond the name-calling to carefully examine the areas of belief that separate the LDS Church from the "Biblical" norm."
"How can you know what is true….unless there is a TRUTH you can KNOW ??"
(see: II Timothy chapters 2-4 in the Bible)
So some guy guys on Mike Hickabee's website, not to say how great Mike Hickabee is, but to give out anti-Mormon "facts". And Mike Hickabee leaves it on the site. Here is another treasure from Mike Huckabee's official site:

SHOULD A CHRISTIAN VOTE FOR A MORMON ?
"I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed ! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed ! For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ."
Galatians 1: 6-10 ( The Apostle Paul)
The church today is probably more susceptible to false teachers, doctrinal error and "spiritual terrorism" than any other generation in church history. Biblical ignorance within the church has been evident for quite some time, but having watched and listened to the political debate over recent months, I am convinced that it may well be deeper and more widespread than at any other time in history.
Of course, I am aware that in the political process of electing the President of the United States, we are not electing a "national Pastor"or a denominational leader. As Americans, we are free to become involved at whatever level we desire, and support the candidate that best represents our overall views.
For myself and our family, the choice of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has been a relatively easy one, and I strongly encourage you to visit his extensive Web Site at www.mikehuckabee.com Thousands of people who never thought he was "electable"….are suddenly changing their views in record numbers.
As you know, the so called "Christian" vote is divided among a number of different candidates. One of these candidates receiving a substantial percentage of this voter block is former Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts. He is a member of the "Mormon Church." (why the quotes?) My desire here is not to "bash" Mitt Romney as I am sure he is a nice man with a loving family and has without question, been very successful in his business endeavors over the years. Personally, my basic opposition to Romney has more to do with his changing positions than to his "faith." (why the quotes?)
Even though this perhaps should not be shocking, I have to admit to being stunned at the rather lengthy list of so called "evangelical Christian" leaders across America who have voiced their full support of Mitt Romney. People like Bob Jones III…Jay Sekulow, Ralph Reed, Mark De Moss, Jack Templeton and then just recently, Paul Weyrich. (So according to this guy on Mike Huckabee's official website Paul Weyrich is a "so called" religious leader)
Even people like James Dobson, among others, have seemed to consider endorsing him. If we were down to the general election time, and the only two choices remaining were Mitt Romney or Hillary Clinton, perhaps all this would not seem quite so shocking. But, in the midst of the primary election season, especially when a one of a kind candidate like Mike Huckabee is "available," it is almost beyond belief. (It doesn't occur to these guys that Mike Huckabee could embarrass evangelicals?).
Again, we all have the freedom to choose for ourselves, that is one of our great American freedoms. What is amazing to me however, is the total lack of understanding of what "Mormonism" (why does he keep putting it in quotes?) actually is. For those "professing Christians" who may be backing Romney at this time, I would like to very briefly share some basic information (that I assumed all true believers were aware of.) Please at least consider these things before you vote in your caucus or primary election in 2008.
First of all, Romney often states that he considers himself a "Christian" and that he considers"Jesus Christ to be my Savior." However, the "god" of Mormonism is NOT the God of the Bible. Their "god" is named Elohim and was once a man who supposedly came from another planet. Mormon theology teaches that men can eventually become a god and have their own planet. When a member of this cult talks about "god", they are talking about this fictitious god of Mormonism, NOT the God of the Bible.
This is also true for Jesus. The "jesus" of Mormon theology is not God incarnate as the Bible clearly teaches. The Mormon "jesus" was not supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, but the natural off spring of their "god", Elohim who supposedly had a physical relationship with Mary, meaning he is a created being no different than any of us.
Mormons also teach that their "jesus" had several wives and children (in complete contradiction to what the Bible teaches) The "jesus" of Romney and the Mormon cult is also , they say, the brother of Lucifer and will not return to the Mount of Olives as the Bible teaches, but to Independence, Missouri to set up his earthly kingdom. I wish I was making this up, but I'm not.
So, when you hear Romney on "Hannity and Colmes", the "O'Reilly Factor" or "Larry King" talking about "jesus", he is not talking about the Jesus of the Bible, he is referring to the imaginary "jesus" of Joseph Smith and the Mormon cult. Mormons often use the Bible to "support" the deception that they are "Christians." The trademark of all cults and false religions, is that the Bible is NOT their final authority. In the Mormon cult, their authority does not come from the Bible, which they view as incomplete and unreliable. Instead their "authority" comes from the writings of Joseph Smith, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl of Great Price, and the Doctrine and Covenants. These are the writings that form their false theology.
Like in all cults, the average member hasn't got a clue what their cult really believes. You only get to know everything after you have proven yourself to be a loyal and worthy member. True Christian leaders and Pastors need to at least be responsible enough to teach their people what Mormons and other cults really believe. I have not even scratched the surface of the wealth of information that is easily accessible from thousands of people who were once a part of this cult.
Again, Mitt Romney has every right to follow "Mormonism" and Americans have every right to support his candidacy. These thoughts are primarily intended for uncommitted voters who profess Christianity as their faith, but who perhaps have always assumed that Mormons were just another "branch" of Biblical Christianity. They're not.

So according to Randy, because Romney's faith is wrong, you should not vote for him? Does this also apply to Jews? How about Catholics?
and this one:
12/03/2007 05:19 PM
As his big religion speech nears, Mitt Romney shouldn't be allowed to minimize his involvement with Mormonism, passing the really weird tenets off as legends, parables, or myth. He has been a Mormon missionary, a bishop, and a stake president, and as such, he has stood up in front of large numbers of his fellow "saints" and quite literally testified that the LDS Church is the only true church of God and the only way to heaven, that Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet of God along with the current LDS president, prophet, seer and revelator, and that the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Conenants, and the Pearl of Great Price are the true word of God. (Stake) President Romney has to admit that the Mormons still have polygyny on the books as a reward to good members after they die and go to the Celestial Kingdom, and he has to admit that war is okay if it spreads the Gospel. Mormons and Romney, as one of the best Mormons the LDS Church has to offer, hold very strong beliefs that affect everyone in the world. Mitt Romney must disclose the scriptures he has testified to in the past and their certain effect on all of us should he be elected.
Mormons hold that there are a heavenly mother and father of each of us, their having created our spirits in heaven prior to our being born on earth. Consistent with that basic belief, abortion is definitely murder. The Stake President, when governor of MA, was lying when he said he supported freedom of choice. My sense is he did this with the full knowledge and endorsement of the LDS leadership, justifying the lie to the voters of Massachusetts by the greater good of getting a Mormon into high government. This time he would present many more deceptive promises in order to get elected, and there would certainly be war without end (the story of Laban, Nephi I, The Book of Mormon).
P.S. Oh, yes, and Mitt Romney is no Jack Kennedy.
All and all if you do a search for "Mormon" on Mike Huckabee's official site, you will find 190 references to his religion.
Way to go Mike!
I heard one prominent Christian minister, on a national talk show last night, strongly criticize Mike, saying that he can't believe that Mike is using faith to condemn Mormons, as he knows many Mormons, who are nice people.
And, they are nice people; but, while they say that they believe in Jesus, they don't believe in the same Jesus. They don't worship Jesus as Lord and Savior.
And, of course, Mike isn't the one doing the criticizing, at all. Mike is staying above board, throughout all of this.
Our continued prayers are necessary.
Fasting will be key, for those who are familiar with it, to seek God's power upon Mike and our nation and our world.
When someone says that Allah is God, the same God as the God of the Bible–that isn't accurate, since the God of the Bible is the same as Jesus and our Holy Spirit. Muslims don't believe that, as they believe that Jesus was simply a great prophet, but wasn't God at all, so they believe in a different God.
Again, Satan has pulled the wool over their eyes.
So, Mike will be criticized and condemned, and it is of Satan, as those who know the Lord can attest.
So, again, it is not our place to condemn others, including other Christians.
I believe that it is in 1 Thessalonians where it says that we ARE to judge those inside the church, if they claim to be Chrisians but don't follow the Lord; the same verse says that God will judge those outside the church.
But, while regarding the words and behavior of those inside or outside of the church, we would feed into Satan's plans if we condemn.
Mike, as a Chrisian, will be criticized; other religions will almost always be held up as models, as with Romney's speech.
Christians know the truth, and must hold to it.
Again, God knows what is going on, and He is big enough to handle it.
God, we praise You for who You are.

Though you might like some ammunition against Mitt Romney. Information for secularists and Christians - both of whom fear Romney.
And this one:
12/15/2007 06:01 PM
"Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and Satan are brothers?"
No one has answered this question yet, only critized it and turned it as Huckabee bashing his canidates beliefs. Meanwhile, everyone else feels its ok to throw Huckabee's belief around like a rag doll. It seems like in every debate, interview, etc that Huckabee cannot leave without someone trying to find a way to stump him and mess up his words so they can call him a hipocrit.
However, back to the origional question…
The answer is YES. Mormons do not just believe that they are "spiritual" brothers, but they believe they are related more deeper than that, that each one (Jesus and Satan) could of been the Savior of the World, but God the Father chose Jesus.
check out this Latter-Day Saints website and read it for yourself…
Mike Huckabee's website is a clearing house of anti-Mormon literature, views, and beliefs. And he links to many websites that take the Mormon hatred to a new level.
Here is a nice post:
12/06/2007 06:05 PM
I just sent out 27 emails. Hope they all go to the website!
In response to Mitt Romney's discussion on religion, I would just like to say that I like Mike's answer. "My religion doesn't influence my decisions; it drives them."
The problem I have with Mitt being a Mormon is not that I don't respect his freedom to believe whatever he wants to believe. He can believe god is a hard boiled egg if he wants. (As a Mormon, in fact he believes God has a god above hom, and he has another above him, and so on into infinity!) Okay. This is America. But, do I want someone whose mind has not been enlightened by the truth that makes men free? Do I not much prefer - if given the choice - to vote for a leader who has embraced that religion which our founding fathers turned to in writing all our founding documents? As Rabbi Lapin says, it is thanks to Christianity that we do have freedom of religion in this country.
But Mormons claim to be Christian. Well, if you just google it, you will learn some pretty un-Christian things about this religion, especially about the really bizzare founder, Joseph Smith and the "apparitions" of the "Angel" Moroni, (phony Moroni) who gave him the Book of Mormon written on golden tablets, along with magic stones to enable him to translate the ancient writing into English.
These magic stones could even give him the words without his even having to look at the tablets. Soon they were "lost," rather conveniently by a friend and associate in the founding of this new religion, which was supposedly a handed down by two Jewish tribes who were living in America around 400 A.D. The only problem is, no one has ever found one single shred of evidence they ever existed, no artifacts, not a piece of a pot, no arrowhead, nothing!
Now here is my real problem with Mitt Romney. A man would have to be able to close his eyes to some pretty obvious nonsense to be gullible enough to believe this stuff. So, if he's that gullible about his religion, how can we be certain he won't be fooled by say Ahmadinejad, for example? The guy seems nice enough, but he just doesn't go deep enough into reality to be a President, in my opinion. He seems rather unreal, when I compare him to our man, Huck.
Third and final, if you are a Christian, does your faith drive you in your life at all? Because if it doesn't, you will have to answer to God. Trust me, this country doesn't need any more "separation" since we have rapid immorality, threats from Islamic fanatics, and a "divided" states that need unity from someone who has integrity and honesty. Do you really think Mitt Romney, who can't make up his mind what he wants to be..even in his Mormon faith..can fit that bill? My prayer is that you would pray to our Lord and Savior for direction, study your scriptures for guidance, and examine your own motivations in writing your blog. Proverbs 15:28 says "the heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things." Please don't pour out evil things as a Christian against a brother in the Lord who obviously wants to govern this country better. Proverbs 16:7 says "When a man's ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him." I believe this describes Mike Huckabee and is one of many reasons he'd be an excellent President.
Thank you, Mike, for being a man not ashamed of his Christian faith; for being a breath of fresh air in this political scene. Our family prays and supports you. In Christ, the NY Smiths.
12/07/2007 11:09 AM
Thanks for the link on Father Jonathan's article - it is good.
To read his article:
But in addition to the questions Father Jonathan raises regarding Mormonism, there's one BIG one missing: Mitt Romney also needs to explain to the American people and SPECIFICALLY to all people of color, why he believes in a book (The Book of Mormon) the Mormons hold equal to the bible where it says that people with dark skin are cursed of God.
This is the strongest point of why Mitt Romney's Mormonism VERY MUCH matters.
The Book of Mormon that Romney believes and supports, states that God curses certain individuals with dark skin; the races are determined by how worthy individuals were prior to this mortal life; and blacks were not as faithful in their first estate; that God cursed people with dark skin to keep them from interbreeding with their white brethren; and that God blessed some who repented with white skin. Nothing concerning the revelation in 1978 to give "all worthy males members" the priesthood invalidates or denounces those racist beliefs.
SOURCES: (Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation 1:61-7; McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 527-8; Alma 3:6-9; 2 Ne. 5:21-4; and 3 Ne. 2:14-6).
Now, if Romney were to denounce the Book of Mormon, that would be a different story.
12/12/2007 10:18 PM
I agree completely about Romney on H&C, trying to play the 'victim' of religious bigotry. Why is it that Huck has to answer questions about HIS mainstream Christiann theology ad nauseum, but Romney isn't expected to answer any questions about his theology, which happens to be considered cultic by many Christian scholars. Forget Slick Willie, this is Slick Romney putting him to shame. I'm appalled at Hannity's obvious bias. My husband just informed me that Glen Beck, also a Mormon, is on the anti-Huck bandwagon. If Huck has a chance, it will be thanks to ordinary people contributing to his campaign, talking to friends and praying for him.
12/13/2007 08:29 PM
After the debate Mike apologized to Mitt. Why? All he did was ask someone a legitimate question about Mormon beliefs. What is so wrong about that? Do you think Mike would be offended if he heard that Mitt had asked someone, even somewhat critically, a question about his religious beliefs? Let's say Mitt asked someone, "Don't Baptists believe in the Trinity? How can three people be one?"
I'm sure Mike would not be offended. In fact I bet Mike would welcome the opportunity to explain his beliefs to Mitt. Why would Mike not be offended? Because truth has nothing to fear from those who question it.
On the other hand, for some reason (you guess) Mormon leaders have built two walls to protect their followers from tough questions about Mormonism. To begin with Mormon leaders claim that their church is "the only true church" and that they have a living Prophet who now speaks directly to them from God. Mormons are taught that it is very wrong to ever question the truthfulness of "God's Prophet." So most Mormons never question the accuracy of anything their church tells them. Next they are taught that those who do question their church - "anti-Mormons" as they are called - are almost certainly asking their questions only to criticize the Mormon church and to try to destroy a Mormon's faith.
These two protection mechanisms - believing it is wrong to question the teachings of their church - and believing that anyone who questions their faith is almost certainly doing so with bad motives - keep Mormons from ever learning anything other than that which their church wants them to know.
12/13/2007 06:57 AM
I'm assuming that people have figured out by now that Huckabee was correct in his implication that, in Mormon doctrine, Jesus and Satan are brothers. See the following links from THE LDS LIBRARY and also from the NPR blog.
I don't believe that Romney's Mormonism disqualifies him from being president, but I do think it's important to defend Huckabee's credibility on this issue. Whether or not he intended to plant this question in the media, in politics, perception is everything. The implication by the media is that Huckabee believed it to be true, and in fact, it IS TRUE. So Huckabee was right.
11/13/2007 10:04 PM
I am a KKLA (Radio broadcasting in Los Angeles) regular listener ; and one of the best programs I enjoy most is Frank Pastori talk show. Frank is very intelligent and sharp, I mean, he is excellent except one aspect: he seems not to support Mike Huckabee as much as many Christians want him to. Tonight, he talked about "why Christians are not supporting Romney?" To me, his implication was that Christians can or even should support Romney. I wish he had talked about, "Why some Christians are not supporting Huckabee?" You know, English is not my native language. If I have a confidence in communicating, I would have definitely called him and asking why Chisitians have to support Mormon when we have Chrstian brother to support. I was so frustrated thinking we don't have that many Mike Huckabee Supporter in Los Angeles area. Then, the first called said to the effect that he as ex-mormon knowing the nature and agenda of Mormon church simply can't vote for Romeny; then the next one really hit me strong. He is from Sylmar area made a excellent arguement so logically and convincingly that every Christian without exception should vote for Mike Huckabee.
Only God knows how I was grateful to hear him and his reason for his support for Huckabee. I was so released.
* I share what I shared not to mean Mike Huckabee is only for those Christians. I beleive evereybody should vote for him.
And this is pretty good:
Thirdly, has there ever been a guy who has so closely matched the background and values of the modern evangelical? As conservative radio host and activist Rick Scarborough said, "This is the guy we've been praying for. If we don't back him, shame on us." And since we're talking religion, let's be honest: Romney's Mormonism is not the same as Kennedy's Catholicism. Most evangelicals believe Mormonism is a cult, with all sorts of weird beliefs. At a recent meeting of conservative activists in Salt Lake City, I heard a very influential Christian leader say, "Mormonism is demonic." Now, whether you believe that or not is not the point. The point is that lots of people do, and they are influential people in the evangelical world. So make no mistake, if Romney remains a front runner, you can expect a national debate on some of the strange and esoteric beliefs and practices of Mormonism. Romney will have to say either that he believes them, and thereby seem weird or cultic to many Americans, or he will have to say he doesn't believe them, and thereby seem hypocritical or cowardly and traitorous. Either way, Romney loses.
The bottom line is this: There is very little chance the Republicans will have a candidate by March, despite the fact that some activists are saying we should put our differences aside and start running against Hillary. Of course, in a few months, after the first round of primaries, there will be some winners and losers. At least one of the front runners will have to drop out of the race. Right now, my money is on McCain to make an early exit. I also predict that Duncan Hunter will drop out. He's simply not getting traction because the issues he hoped would differentiate him are being carried ably by others. Ron Paul is in for the duration. He's raising enough money to stay in, and he seems to be enjoying the notoriety. And though he can't win, he will carry enough supporters late into the process - perhaps all the way to the convention - to play spoiler or convention broker.
Huckabee could be a major beneficiary of all of this, especially of any early re-alignments. As Huckabee starts to appear more electable, he will pick up more of the undecided voters, which right now stand at about 15 to 20 percent of the likely primary voters. They won't all break for Huckabee, of course, but he'll likely get more than his fair share. Also, many of those who have decided will change their minds. A former Southern Baptist leader in South Carolina who had supported Romney has already withdrawn his endorsement. Indeed, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council estimates that about 25 percent of evangelicals are supporting Giuliani, but he also said that support is "squishy." If just a few of those evangelicals move away from Giuliani, he's no longer the front runner. If they moved en masse to Huckabee, then Huckabee is suddenly a "top-tier" candidate.
Does all of this mean that Mike Huckabee will be the next president of the United States? Of course not. But does it mean that he could get the nomination? I think he could. And if that happens, who knows what might happen next? It wouldn't be the first time an early longshot from Hope, Arkansas, has gone all the way to the White House.
So to go back to my original point: all of this poses a problem for pro-family leaders such as Gary Bauer and Tony Perkins, who have been "hanging fire." And leaders such as Lou Sheldon, Bob Jones III, and Jay Sekulow, who are supporting Romney because of pragmatism, not principle. There is some wisdom in waiting, as Bauer and Perkins are doing, to let the process work. But the Romney supporters, I fear, will be judged by history as having sold-out their Christian birthright for a mess of Mormon porridge.
And all of them have to answer this question: If all they do is follow, then what makes them leaders?

This morning when I got to my office (I am a youth pastor) I found an interesting piece of mail. I received a letter from the Columbus Ohio Stake President D. Bradley Welling. He was writting on behalf of the LDS church asking that we consider allowing him to come to our church and give us a presentation about what mormons believe.
I am not sure what to make of this, however I find it very interesting with Romney trying to get Christian voters that his church would contact church leaders to give us a presentation about mormonism.
Just thought I would pass that along.

Here's a site you might want to look at or link to to explore Mitt Romney further:
Link to a posting on Romney's faith speech which brought in a couple comments from Utah Mormons.
+ + +
This is a tight race in Iowa and I urge all to look into Mike Huckabee and his issues thoroughly. Remember, Mother Teresa of Calcutta (who is now a Blessed) had repeatedly said during her lifetime, "The Western world will never know peace as long as they continue to allow their mothers to kill their own young." While the abortion/life issue is not the only issue, it certainly should remain in place as explained in this blog post regarding
Faithful Citizenship, a document from American bishops. And Mike is the strongest pro-life candidate for president I have ever seen throughout my lifetime. To speak up and out for the littlest of God's creations as he did on Meet the Press (transcript of that portion here) is a sign of a man who will care for us all.
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for and defend Mike Huckabee and his team.

Please continue to lead this race with the Fair Tax. I donated money for the first time in my life for a political candidate. I know that when the Fair Tax is passed that I'll see that money back in my wallet. I really appreciate the solid foundation that you are running on. People have attacked you because of your faith. Stay strong. What we believe about God (religion) matters. All religions make certain claims and you those are pitted against each other someone has to be wrong. An atheist believes their is no God, a Mormon believes that Joseph Smith was a profet, a Muslim believes in a single God that rewards evil, Hinduism believes in many gods, and a Christian believes in one God who has proven himself through his creation and has left a supernature fingerprint embedded in the Bible and in History as well as sacrificed Himself humanity in the greatest and bloodiest act of love and goodness this world has ever known. These can all not be right at the same time. I have confidence in you because you believe in the God that created this cause and effect universe. This law effects those who even do not believe. This gives you the opportunity and a wisdom to make decisions that are in agreement with the way the universe run. Please stay strong and hold on to your values.

I was so disappointed with Bill O'Reilly's attack of Governor Huckabee's Christian faith. I've sent O'Reilly a few emails today. Please email him and tell him to treat all presidential candidates the same. O'Reilly is so biased against Huckabee and looks as though he is a Romney supporter.
O'Reilly completely discounts the Rasmussen tracking poll that has had Huckabee at 10-12% yet I watched a video of O'Reilly quoting the Rasmussen tracking poll on his September 7th show when John McCain gained some points after a debate. He needs to be consistent and not just quote polls when it serves his purposes.
I also watched several interviews O'Reilly had with Mitt Romney and he never ONCE asked Romney about his Mormon faith!!
Please email O'Reilly! If he gets enough comments, he will have to read some of them on his show tonight.
12/30/2007 11:49 PM
Yes, it's despicable the way Fox and "friends" (the GOP estalishment elite) and people like Brit Hume and Chris Wallace actually pass on Romney's lies as NEWS.
However, I'd like to remind everyone that we are responsible to God to vote our conscience, not vote for the lesser of 2 evils like we did with Bush & Kerry.
I know it's hard to face, but the truth is the GOP establishment loves to throw in a candidate who says "Jesus" and "anti-gay marriage," and "pro-life" jargon; when they are neither (like Romney). And just to show how dumb they think us evangelicals are, they are actually hoping a mormon candidate would do and we wouldn't notice the contradiction.
It's just a rouse to get the evangelical vote.
We must vote our conscience no matter what, we must vote for Mike Huckabee.
We are only responsible for our vote, not the outcome.
Vote Mike Huckabee 2008!

Thomas Paine– Your post states that you are a Christian. It also states that you support Romney. Pardon me, but I cannot reconcile the two statements.
Are you aware, sir, that adherents of the Mormon faith believe that when Mormon men die, they will become gods of equal stature with God? Mormon women cannot become gods unless they are married to a Mormon man. This belief is the belief that originally led to polygamy…excuse me…"plural marriages".
These beliefs taken alone should be troubling enough to make any Christian take a deeper look at the Mormon faith. Christ never taught that believing in Him would help us to become gods. To the contrary, Christ's message was that we would worship God for eternity in Heaven, not that we would be His equal.
The Mormon faith is founded on the writings of an American (Joseph Smith) who claimed to have found sacred writings that only he could translate (with the aid of giant spectacles). Pick up a copy of the Mormon bible and you will see several additional "books" that were added to the recognized canon of scripture, despite the warnings of Revelation against doing so.
Mr. Paine, a Mormon cannot be both a Christian and a Mormon. The precepts of one preclude the other, regardless of how many warm-n-fuzzy TV ads the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints runs. Intellectually weak people allow their opinions to be formed by what they see on TV. I urge you to research Mormonism with an open mind, and free of any existing socio-political beliefs you might hold. Support Mr. Romney for other things, if you insist, but not on the basis of Christianity.
This comment has been on Mike Huckabee's official blog for about 15 days:

Every day Glen Beck goes on and on about how upset he is with Huckabee foe asking a question that supposedly cast a negative light on his and Romneys Mormon religion. Never mind that what was suggested is exactly what the Mormon literature states (no it isn't). It must drive Glen nuts that his interview with Huckabee has vaulted Huckabee past Glens chosen candidate Romney. I would like to ask Glen a few questions. 1. Do you believe that Jesus birth is the result of a physical union of GOD and Mary. 2. Glen will you someday be a god over many planets in the same manner that Jesus is (a god) of this planet. 3. Glen, do you think that the Garden of eden is in Missouri. 4. Glen, does the Sun gets it's light and heat from a star named Kolbar near a planet where GOD lives. Mormons believe these things Glen, do you? Last qusetion– Glen, do you really regard yourself as a thinker? REALLY?
Here is some more:

To Mark M.
You wrote: please refrain from insulting other people's religions.
I said: The Mormon Church is a cult, a serious corruption of Christianity, which promotes many teachings which clearly conflict with the teachings of the Bible.
I stand by what I wrote.
You wrote: Also, please do not put words in Mike Huckabee's mouth. You have no place saying he would "probably" feel a certain way.
Mike Huckabee is a former Baptist minister. I have never met a Baptist minister, and I have met a lot of them, who did not consider Mormonism to be a cult and a serious corruption of Christianity.
I wrote: as a former Baptist minister [Mike Huckabee] probably would privately agree with me.
You responded: Your post sounds like a rant with a backhanded jab at Huckabee at the end.
That was no jab. I believe Mike Huckabee is a strong defender of Jesus Christ and of the truth of scripture. As such I doubt he privately thinks very much of cults such as the Mormons who preach a "different gospel" than that which was preached by the apostles. (Gal. 1:8,9) Though publicly, in the position he is now in, I think he will wisely leave such judgments to God.

We wish someone would be bold enough to completely expose the strange beliefs of the mormon cult on national TV. If the public knew exactly what mormons believe (but don't want us to know), they surely would not want a mormon for our President. Mormons think they are the only true church, when in reality they are all blinded and brain-washed.
We have never been interested in candidates during the primaries, til now. Mike Huckabee is a kindred spirit, and we recognize this each and every time he speaks. Our country has been given another "second chance", and we MUST recognize this, rally behind Mike, pray for him, and be so thankful to our Lord for sending him to us "for such a time as this".
