Mormonism's founder Joseph Smith actually ran for President. He probably didn't expect to win, but his platform was interesting. He advocated the sale of public land to buy freedom for all slaves. He also was for reducing pay for members of congress.

Why that's astounding, Paul!

He also founded a false religion. You swallowed it and are plundered for a tenth of your income by bogus priests and prophets. Joseph knew how to turn a penny.

I did not know that but think how much better things might have been if he won. I guess he was the Ron Paul of his time. I clarify that Joseph Smith did not Found the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, he was just the earthy servant(Prophet) Christ used to restore his church in these the Latter days.

You have a very strange definition of "unbiased." I used to read ignorant nonsense like that for the laughs, as the writers would demonstrate over and over just how little they know about the LDS Church.

So you believe one that Banner of Heaven is not propaganda and is unbiased. You also believe The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is more violent than the other churches and people they needed to defend themselves from. What a crock! It is a God given Right to defend yourself your family ,friends. and your way of life. That is why Christians have fought in wars and will continue to fight wars.

I lost a relative in the mountain meadows massacre ,

When the former junior state senator from Chicago, one Barack Obama—a man no one knew diddly about—decided, “Hey, I’m gonna run for president!” people were eager to learn more about this promising upstart. Uncle Joe Biden was curious about Barack. Joe said at first blush that Obama seemed “clean” and “articulate,” which, I think, would be a hate crime if a conservative said that about him.

Anyhoo, Obama impressed many chiefly because he could enthusiastically read vague, cliché-riddled speeches off a teleprompter that included lots of big words like nobody’s business! This ability to read hazy political speeches in...
