Reid calls out Romney on their shared Mormon faith

Washington (CNN) – The nation's highest ranking Mormon in elected office said Monday that Republican presidential candidate is “not the face of Mormonism.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, made the remarks in a conference call Monday, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

    And Harry Reid is the face of Mormonism???? I think dirty Harry Reid even knew what a Mormon is, does Harry Reid even know where there is a Mormon church?????? Harry Reid is so pathetic, he's a joke. Oh wait, are Harry Reid's sons Mormon????

    I think Harry Reid is still Agnostic which explains his bad behavior and those of his sons "Reid was raised agnostic in Searchlight, Nevada, and converted to Mormonism, along with his wife Landra, while attending Southern Utah University

    Mittens has taken the Mormon faith of lying for his own gain. As a birther, Mittens represents the dumbest 2% of Americans.

    This, however, is the first time that Reid has attacked Romney based on their shared faith.

    Judge Mitt Romney as you will, and vote for or against him as you will; but do not judge Mormonism on the basis of the Mitt Romney that was unveiled to the public this week,” Prince wrote. “He is not the face of Mormonism.”
    As that beer commercial says: "HERE WE GO"!!!

    The topic has been brought up, let's discuss, because I know I have many questions in regards how this moron, err, mormon is conducting himself.
    Lying, greed, quest for power, ego out of control, selling out his values (if he ever had any), lackof empathy and compassion, and kicking the least of us to the proverbial curb without batting an eyelash or breaking his stride.
    What kind of Mormon is this?

    To be fair, Reid should stick to the tax issue, beacuse he was scoring alot of points there, especially with Mittens' weak and desperate reponses. Attacking others' religions or the quality of their faith in their religion or fabricating conspiracy theories to accuse them of being secretly a member of another religion and not the one they claim to have faith in...that's all kinda off limits, no matter who is doing it. Keep it above the belt, Harry.

  7. Obamacare = Obama cares about the young, elderly, poor and disabled. Romneycare = "I don't care about the poor"!

    Well, I am happy to hear that Robme is a "false prophet", he takes that "lying for the Lord" when dealing with non-Mormons, way too seriously.

    What mormon faith. The twit never speaks about his religion. Something else he has going against him with those born again christians!

    Romney for America's veterans is the face of DRAFT DODGER. His great feat while protesting to send the sons and daughters of the 47%ers to go die on foreign soil, went and HID IN PARIS FRANCE. Draft dodger, nothing more.

    This man is a disgrace and his comments are out of order.
    It clearly has nothing to do with politics but is a personal vendetta against Mitt Romney and Reid is using his public forum to do so.
    It is shameful and disgusting .
