The Romneys make the Santorum family look normal.

I don't know what's worse, a lying hypocrite and adulterer who doesn't have any moral code of his own, or a serious Mormon.

As an athiest, this is kinda insulting, but its more weird than anything else.

Reading the 3012 boards dulls one's sense of irony.

Seriously. How many times can we read about the Obamachine 3000 pulling ahead of the Reagantronix QLZ in the race for Mars Mutant Colony's 48 electoral votes? Sheesh!

As an atheist, I loled.  Makes me wish I had a soul so it could look at him and say, "Cool story, bro."

Approve. I too have converted my dead Catholic ancestors to my personal brand of worshipless pantheism.

Indeed. I'm by no means a supporter of Mormonism, but why should that be considered creepy? It's part of their religion, and it has no impact whatsoever on how Romney would handle the job of President.

When someone dies their legacy and memory is all they leave behind... And then Mormons have to go ahead and tarnish it with creepy garbage like this.  There should be no religious test for public office, but America should really look into what this guy believes and how it guides him.  It's just too wacky to be irrelevant.

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

If the Mormons ever try doing this to me, I will take up matters with Saint Peter and seriously look into my options for legal (and other) action.

You know what's less normal than religious beliefs? Hint: Go ask Santorum.

Bigotry against Mormons is just as ugly as any other type of bigotry.

No one's forcing Mormons to be Mormon (except other Mormons). Other types of bigotry are worse because you don't choose to be black, or Hispanic, or gay, or Jewish (culturally), or....

How is this worse than other victimless religious practices? As an atheist you don't give a  what happens to your body after you die. But I still lol'd.

Well, it's not just atheists they do it to. Non-Mormon Christians like belgiansocialist and I certainly don't see it as victimless in theory, even though it is of course completely ineffectual.

Where is the victim in Mormonism?

By the way, Cynthia Nixon says that she is "gay by choice." You should have a talk with her.
