Mitt Romney & His 1st Class Tickets to Planet Kolob
I’m not one to pick on religion… HA- just kidding! Interesting video on Mormonism. I have to admit I find it funny Christians seem so ready to single out Mormons when they all share equally absurd beliefs. Planet Kolob is only as absurd as magic crackers and the whole transubstantiation rubbish. Lighting a candle in a church or sacrificing a chicken in a Candomblé ritual are in essence the same flawed thinking: The idea that one can change the course of events with some sort of magical intervention. Mormons baptising dead people is no more offensive and condescending as a Christian saying they’ll pray for you. Today Andrew Sullivan is asking us to have a look at Romney’s religion. I’ll save my critique of Sullivan for another time except to say he calls himself a ‘secularist Christian’- which is an oxymoron.
