here are a few things Mormons won't tell you: MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they believe your Church is wrong, your Christian creeds are abomination to God, and you pastor or Priest is a hireling of Satan. MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they intend to be gods themselves some day, and are helping to earn their exaltation to godhood by talking to you. MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that before 1978 they considered the Black race inferior, and even one drop of Negro blood prevented a person from entering their priesthood. MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that on their Salt Lake City Temple they prominently display an upside-down star which is a Satanic symbol known as the Goat's head. Why? Don't be afraid to investigate, look it up >SEARCH IT< I'm ready for the debates, are you? btw it's not like he doesn't remind us everyday why not to vote for him, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTEh5tJY9Is Good Day!

ALL CHURCHES should pay taxes yeah that's right! Why not? they run like a business, but they don't so their forced to not be able to comment on politics during mass. God bless Sister Simone Campbell for coming out and standing strong, Take the disguises off fellas your going to have to do a better job of preaching what is right or wrong. Do we need to bring up the fact that the debt ceiling was raised 8 times during the Bush administration? It's a fact that after every recession this country has gone through we have had to re-invest in the country, come on it's simple biz-101, you cannot make money without spending some. Did we forget this guy is a Mormon? I don't know about that silly stuff he wears under his pants that's just strange, and this guys does not pray to GOD they pray to "Joseph Smith".

Did the GOP not promise to make our President Barack Obama and his administration fail? And block everything in congress to create jobs even to block bills that created jobs for war veterans. Please I'm not going to argue with a bunch of clueless racists, all republicans in congress should be tried for treason that's right treason, they have made unemployment numbers rise by design, we do read and keep up with the issues it's 2012 you can't just spout off at the mouth like in the 80's & 90's on local news and think everything is true look it up. An to the idiots talking about life, yes I care about life, but I don't need some self righteous right wing wacko using religion to disguise their agenda, Do you think I would want government telling my Daughter or Wife they can't have an Abortion if they were raped? ARE you CRAZY? Let's just just go back in time, next you'll want anyone not white sitting in the back of busses and only using rear entrances. I am religious but I know how to divide my spirituality with government and state laws.

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
