Why Romney Will Lose: He is a Mormon

Mitt Romney is a handsome man, he is rich and educated. All that is very well but the fact remains that he is a Mormon. This so called religion may well destroy Romney’s chance to become the most powerful leader in the world. That looks like to be one reason that cannot be brushed under the carpet and may keep Obama in the white House for another term. From what I have been reading there are people in his own party who have articulated that they just can’t vote for a Mormon as US president. That is sad for Romney and may mean that he will also be like the other who also ‘ran’. Romney belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). Some refer to Mormons as a pure American invention and they are right because I have not heard of Mormons outside the United States. This cult was founded by Joseph smith Jr in the 19th century. Some people who have investigated the faith have concluded it’s a closed faith that tolerates no dissent and asks its followers to shun anybody who leaves the Mormon faith. In an interview the cousin of Mitt, Park Romney who left the Mormon faith claims the church is a fraud. It has weird beliefs. Many voters in America is bound to ask why should they vote for a Mormon as President of the USA In popular American fiction Mormons are equated with bad men. Thus in Zane Grey’s “riders of the Purple Sage’ the hero fights against a gang of Mormons. The Mormons also permit multiple marriages and no divorce. Mitt is a committed Mormon and has risen in the hierarchy of the Mormon Church. Knowing that being a Mormon is a disadvantage the poll managers of Mitt have tried to put it on the back burner. I am afraid it may not still help at the hustings and my guess is that Obama is already home and dry.
