Title: If this is true about Romney and the mormons, it could get bad...
Post by: ParkingPlaces on October 22, 2012, 05:43:18 PM
Obviously, as an atheist, I want this to be true on general non-principles. I'd like to corroborating information, but that may or may not be available.

In essence, the linked article says, among other things,that there is a mormon prophecy that the US will be undergoing great economic and social upheaval, but that a mormon will be elected president, declare marshal law and turn the country into a mormon theocracy.

I'm just guessing, but theocracies probably forbid atheist web sites. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, it is called The White Horse" prophecy.  The Mormons will tell you that they no longer follow or believe in that but aside from that they really want it to be true.  In college other Mormons often thought of Mitt as the ONE.  He even had to calm it down so not to draw to much attention to it.  But then what's the big deal.  Billy Graham said Mitt was now his guy.  Even took Mormonism off the cult list on his website.

Just to be safe you might check for size and fit for your magic undies.  See you on a mission brother/sister.

I read it. The guy sounds like a fuckin' nut. But if it puts your mind at ease Nate Silver gives Romney only a 33% chance of winning the Electoral vote.

Some Christian friends told me they were OK with Mitt because at least he wouldn't bring on Sharia law, like a Muslim would do.

Sad.

Well, in the interest of being fair and unbiased, I offer this wonderful and intelligent woman, who will be more than happy to tell you why she is voting for Mitt.

And I apologize for posting this. It is NSFB (not safe for brains)

Cut and paste this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bzvm7zd4Z-s&feature=channel&list=UL

Nick and others: Nate Silver was just on the Daily Show the other day. Good guy. His twitter feed is:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bzvm7zd4Z-s&feature=channel&list=UL (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bzvm7zd4Z-s&feature=channel&list=UL)

He isn't one of those serial tweeters, but whenever anything interesting happens, he'll let you know.

He called the 2008 election exactly right except for N. Carolina, which just barely went to McCain after he said it would probably go to Obama. Other than that (and he said it would be close and could go either way) he hit every frickin' state right on.

"Don't vote for Obama 'cause he's anti-Catholic, and Romney's, like, GORGEOUS! and we haven't had a gorgeous president since Kennedy but he got shot [plane flies over]...what was I saying? Oh, yeah, and, like Romney is so GORGEOUS and, but, like he's not a Christian, I'm Catholic,and he's a Mormon but he's, like, so GORGEOUS. I named my tits after him...I mean, my dog...."

[paraphrased]

Talk about a person who believes the lies, and needs to stop dying her hair so much 'cause it's making her stupider.

I keep forgetting that my memory isn't what it used to be. I stand corrected. In any case, Mr. Silver got one state just slightly wrong, and hit the rest very accurately. I just forget which state/or which candidate. He's cooler than me, by far.

And my trust in him right now makes it possible to sleep at night. Not that he is predicting an Obama sweep or anything, but if the election were held today (and Mitt's kid kept his frickin' hands off the voting machines his company (a subdivision of Bain) owns in Ohio and elsewhere), Nate says Obama would have a 68% chance of winning.

You know what? I had this long analysis of this video written out that tried desperately to avoid sounding superior or snide.   I can't do it.  I can't even avoid it in the sentence above, so F it.  I'm shaking my F'ing head over here... just shaking my F'ing head.

Coming from Nam it is a complement of the highest order...

At least in this case. And as long as he isn't talking about me.  :)

A few years ago, after reading "Under the Banner of Heaven", I went on an internet search after information about Mormonism. I found a site, http://www.exmormon.org/, that proved to be pretty helpful in clearing up my impressions and ideas about Mormons. Straight from the horse's mouth, as it were.

It's a really active site with a ton of information shared by former mormons, as the name implies. I looked up the White Horse Prophecy there, and yep, it sounds like there's been disagreement about it for decades.

ParkingPlaces,

Silver predicted Indiana would go to McCain but Obama won it by 1%.
