Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is an anti-gay, anti-Islam Religious Right activist who dedicates an inordinate amount of effort to attacking the faith of leaders like Barack Obama.
So it should come as no surprise that Cass is also anti-Mormon, as he is now saying that Mitt Romney’s faith should be an important issue in evaluating “his fitness for office” and calling on Romney to “renounce the historic Mormon hostility to Christianity”:
Mormonism has always been at odds with Christianity and openly denies the Trinity and the gospel of grace.
As a Bishop in the Mormon Church, Romney is free to believe its strange doctrines, practice their Masonic rituals, even wear their sacred underwear, but Romney’s Mormon beliefs are not Christian.
Historically Mormons have hated and insulted Christians beginning with its founder, the polygamous Joseph Smith who said he wanted to be the Mohammed of the Americas.
Romney hopes Christians fall for the lie they believe the same things we do.
Mitt Romney, Presidential candidate and Mormon Bishop, in his 2007 speech regarding his Mormon faith sounded conciliatory towards other faiths. But his position is not consistent with the Mormon beliefs he adamantly affirmed in whole and from which he refused to distance himself. The Mormon faith has, from its inception, attacked all other religions, especially orthodox Christianity.
Romney’s Mormon beliefs are not Christian. Mormonism’s antipathy toward Christianity should not be so quickly forgotten. This is an important aspect of any evaluation the American voters make regarding his fitness for office.
If Romney wants the Christian vote, more than the Mormon dollars supporting his campaign, he must demonstrate real respect, not rhetoric. If he does not renounce the historic Mormon hostility to Christianity, then we must conclude that he agrees with his church’s defamation of the past.
