Atheist billboard attacks Romney's faith, but Mormons say it's misleading

Washington (CNN) – When he campaigns in southern Florida on Monday, Mitt Romney will have an unwelcome traveling partner: a mobile billboard attacking his religion.

The billboard on wheels, sponsored by American Atheists, attacks the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for its treatment of African-Americans and gays, though the church says the attacks are inaccurate.

    This has to be the first time in my entire life that I am agreeing with the atheists. Thanks for putting this out there and yes I believe in God and Jesus Christ and not the one Joseph Smith claimed to see either.

    OBAMA 2012!

    That isn't Atheists..........that is the "dirty tricks" department of the Democratic Party, run by Axlerod. This is totally dishonest, in who appears to be behind it.

    Mormonism is Christianity, but from the Protestant section. And ironically, both are Christian. Atheists are not Christians, mind you.

    Too bad the White House didn't have the same policy...then we wouldn't be in the mess we currently find ourselves.

    I stand by the woman in California. I will never vote for a Mormon because that would be a digrace to our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Any true Christian will have already researched the Mormon Church and come to that same conclusion.

    A faith that discriminates against a race isn't a faith, it's a cult! As a African-American, I would't vote for Robmey solely because of his faith. This is a man who advocated for the Vietnam War, yet he dodge any attempt of getting drafted. This is a man who welcomes war, when the country is clearly tired of war. He believes he is the Pale White Horse. All the more reason not to vote for him.
