Return of the prophecies
We have seen the withdrawal of Mitt Romney from the presidential race. Like Nixon we won’t have him to kick around anymore, but I am cheered that big time news columnists have done their homework and delved into his background a bit.
Mormons were so sure that he would win last time, and thought that it was a sure sign from heaven that their prophecies about American government were being fulfilled.
The whole scam started with the propaganda from the LDS church about the state of the world. There were continuous cries of the end of times, and the American Constitution “hanging by a thread”.
None of this as it were, “Came to Pass.”
There will be no “End of Times” or any worldwide conflagration, except maybe some continuing global warming, which we can alleviate, and control with intelligent actions.
Discounting the propaganda, what I have come to notice is the fact that those with a religious agenda seem to think that they have the right to impose these views on the rest of society via government control.
How would anybody save the Constitution from falling by religious means?
How has history shown the results of mixing religion and government?
That is precisely what our Founding Fathers were worried about, as they saw the wars in Europe bloom year after year.
We have to continuously fight to keep our country secular and out of the hands of zealots, but they keep trying to creep back into power with their righteous blabbering’s about “Men on White Horses, come to save us.
As Maureen Dowd so aptly put it in her editorial in the New York times, Mitt Romney’s White Horse came up lame.
On a lame horse
