Letter to the Editor
A Baptist preacher recently said at a political conference that Mitt Romney wasn’t a Christian and the the Mormon church was a cult. The way I see it if Mormons are not Christian and are a cult then Baptists are the same. Both religions are splinter groups that evolved from the Catholic Church which was where the Christian religions started. The degree of coercion and ritual in these two religions is about the same. So if Mormons are a cult the Baptists are a cult too.
The real question voters should be focusing on isn’t what the candidates religion is, but what kind of relationship they have with reality. Do candidates understand cause and effect? Do that believe that bad decisions have consequences. Do they respect the concepts of examining facts and evidence? Are you willing to put reality first in making your important decisions? Personally I’m not interested in whether or not your invisible friend is better than some other invisible friend. What I want to know is if you have a vision for the future of America and a plan to take us from where we are to where we need to be.
