    I guess we can't all fantasize that we're married and slapped around by a Latina wife.
    We wont all be fantasizing, except maybe you.. Question: if you do in fact have a girlfriend, do you let the local color cover come over and take care of business? Does that make you think they will like you more? Anything to be down right?

    Ah yes. The old liberal way. If you don't agree you must be a racist. God forbid anyone think differently than you.

    I went ahead and looked up a few of Hitchens' old columns. It is funny to see the similarities.

    He notes how whenever someone questions of criticizes Mormonism as it relates to the man who might be President, people will immediately try to say you are being prejudiced. Jared did just that.

    Obama and Romney don't need religion to qualify their douchebag status. Anyone using that against them is a douchebag themselves.

    ....in order for you to quote hitchens you would have to assume that I cared what he thought. There were very few people in the public life that were as hateful, depressing and narrow minded as him. The bill mahers and intellectually sad cared what he thought.

    Romney and Obama by all accounts seem like good husbands and fathers. They seem generous and thoughtful of others. Even though i disagree with them both, that is usually my judge for moral character. Their religion means minimal to me.

    Does this thread come with a fuse? Because religion and politics in the same thread might as well be an atom bomb.

    It will blow and take half the pofo with it.

Under the pre-1978 policy, black men of African descent could not hold the priesthood in this way, and were also prohibited from participating in the temple Endowment and sealings, ordinances that the church teaches are necessary for the highest degree of salvation. However, the LDS Church has always had an open membership policy for all races, but few black people who were aware of the racial policy joined the church.[1] In 1978, church leaders ceased the racial restriction policy for black men, declaring that they had received a revelation instructing them to do so.
    Mitt Romney turned 31 in 1978. In that time, he had served as a missionary, rising to co-acting President of the mission, and had convinced his wife to convert to Mormonism. Of course, the Romney family had five generations of upper-level membership in the church, one that institutionalized discrimination against black people. Romney's response?

    So did he condone the racism of the church, did not know the tenets of his church, or did not care?

    So you hire hookers and pretend you're married to them? Cool.

    Ah yes. The old liberal way. If you don't agree you must be a racist. God forbid anyone think differently than you.
    If liberal means "Stating the obvious", then yes, it appears I'm on the money here. Will you go hand them out dressed as a ghost?

    There are some projects down here in Orlando I hear that don't like you very much. Maybe you should send Mrs. Cedar down here to change their mind. Who knows, maybe they'll be gentle this time.
