The four links below are key articles by a former Mormon Richard Packham on why the secrets of Romney's passionate faith and secret beliefs in a Mormon US Theocracy might not be good for the country, women, blacks, gays, non-Mormon religions and other group’s agendas. The rather shocking issues and questions raised in the two documents linked below concern Romney’s Mormon faith’s secret tenants. These secret faith beliefs are legitimate concerns for open political election debate particularly --- when that candidate is running for presidency of the most powerful country on earth and these secret religious beliefs create the core of his worldview that will inform his positions and actions!
The ideas in these documents of secretly establishing a Theocracy in the US with loyalty-proven Mormons as its leaders and head administrators is deeply concerning. If it wasn’t so scary, it would be funny and great fodder for late night comedy. Here are the links:
More key questions and idea to ponder about Romney’s Secret Mormonism and him as president:
The secretiveness of Mormonism and Romney’s lifelong dedication to it and lineage and history of Mormon leadership makes one wonder why would he ever forward transparency as a key value in government while he embraces, practices and vows absolute secrecy in one of the world’s most secretive religions. One also can’t help but wonder if Romney would stack the US cabinet with his sons and fill other US government posts with loyalty-tested and fervent Mormons whose first and most important loyalty is to the stated Mormon goal of the creation of the Mormon Kingdom of God and Zion on earth. How would this primary religious dedication put the US goals and agenda of the Bill of Rights and Constitution a distant second?
Romney is a high ranking priest/member of Mormonism. His family was one of the key founding families of Mormonism part of who even moved to Mexico so they did not have to give up polygamy when Mormonism refuted it polygamy to help make Utah a state. Mormonism lies at the very core of Romney's lifelong worldview. Individuals consistently believe and act in congruity with their worldviews.
Mormon secret and non-secret beliefs must be widely and openly discussed during this presidential campaign. It would be politically insane to elect someone to that power without a full public and journalistic exploration of that worldview --- religious or not! Political correctness should not be used as a tool to censure and silence critical public debate on presidential candidates or controversial religious practices that will influence a presidential candidate.
Romney’s secret Mormon beliefs need lots of last minute coverage by unafraid journalists. They need to ask serious questions about the content of these links and Romney’s Mormon faith.
After reviewing theses articles and if they deep concern you too, please consider forwarding this info to other journalists, media covering the election and your friends (ideally with your comments.)
PS One other question… The way Mormon’s treat women as property and who have to submit to their husband’s decisions as final in family matters as a core tenant of Mormonism makes one wonder why would Romney ever forward a woman’s constitutional equal rights?
