New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor wrote an investigative report on Mitt Romney’s Mormon church and his associated values. She was “looking at the biographical influence of faith on Mitt Romney’s life.” Though the Obama administration is claiming that Mitt Romney’s faith is off-limits on the campaign trail, their cooperate mainstream media arm is trying to make Mormonism an issue, some calling it a cult. Ms. Kantor was interviewed on MSNBC about her article and almost seemed awe stuck of religion in general.
So what makes Mitt Romney so out of touch with the rest of America? Well…
- He like to focus on persistence, resilience, rules, and treating others well.
- Prayer plays an important role in both his business and political decisions.
- Belief in American Exceptionalism.
- Believes that God had a plan for the United States and that America was destined to play a pivotal role in the world.
- The Constitution and America’s founding was divinely inspired.
These values do not seem like they will hurt the American government or the people what so ever. In fact, these values are a breath of fresh air if you compare them with President Barack Obama’s faith of 20 years, Black Liberation Theology. SInce the media did not want to talk about Obama’s religion, black liberation theology seeks to liberate people of color from multiple forms of political, social, economic, and religious subjugation from their perspective views of Christianity being long associated with slavery and segregation. One of the pillars of black liberation theology is “economic parity.” Obama’s old church, the Trinity United Church of Christ, claims that God is not pleased with “America’s economic mal-distribution.” Among all of controversial comments by Jeremiah Wright, the idea of massive wealth redistribution should concern us the most. The phrases “economic parity” and references to “mal-distribution” and “fair share” is nothing more than channeling the twisted economic views of Karl Marx. Black Liberation theologians have explicitly endorsed Marxism as an ethical framework for the black church because Marxist thought is predicated on a system of oppressor class (whites) versus victim class (blacks).
While we are still free in America, we are also free to practice religion as we choose. So, that last issue that should play a role in the upcoming election should be religion. However, a religion based on Marxism, which in theory aims to abolish all religion, seems kind of contradictory. A religion that advocates the redistribution of wealth does not coincide with the principles of freedom this country was founded on. If Mitt Romney practices the traditionally Mormon traits like abhorring debt, wanting to limit federal power, promoting self-reliance and stressing the unique destiny of the United States, we still have a chance to save the Republic…
