    Richard Land, the head of the gigantic (16.3 million-member) Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and its most influential political operative, has dived headlong into what has become a favorite Baptist parlor game: What exactly is a Mormon? It's a question that has special significance right now, since it relates to how religious conservatives regard the Mormon candidate Mitt Romney.

    The answer is it is a cult. I guess I won the game.

    I think it is high time we shed ourselves of religious litmus tests for candidates for public office. We need to be looking at the issues that affect all Americans: the war, the economy, education, health care, etc. It is more important to find the most competent person to be president, governor, senator, or dog catcher, the one who can do the job, not the one who scores the highest on some slanted list of religious issues.

    The government is not the church.

    No, not today, today it doesn't closely resemble anything to what it was intended to resemble by those who founded this once Christian Nation. Now it's just considered a "Christian Nation", if that.

    The held to an idea that this nation would never lose sight of God, they never saw this coming.

    Who would have thought 100 years ago we would be trying to find a candidate to vote for that doesn't support killing babies or men marrying men

    Issuses? yes, and I'd like them to have a more chirsitan view of the issuses, like their view of abortion, gay marriage and unions, freedom of religion. These issues effect of of america and some the unborn americans.

    Never has been a "Christian Nation". A nation with a majority of Christians, yes. Nations cannot have a religion. People do.

    Many nations, if not most have a 'national' religion. Unless I'm mistaken.

    Barb talked to a couple youngsters on bikes, and they agreed with everything she told them, with only the caveat that they'd like to return tomorrow if she'd listen to their side. She said she'd gladly do so, but they didn't return.

    This is the first time Mormon's have used this tactic, as they usually refute our testimonies.
