Shouldn’t Soledad be anchoring on MSNBC? What a complete partisan hack.
It sounds like we’re listening to Obama’s campaign manager. Remember the days when the press scrutinized the current administration regardless of the actual party in power?
Ah, the good old days.

Funny how these “anti-establishment” artists are so beholden to the political persuasion that favors big government and the Nanny State.
Ignorant group-thinkers is all they ultimately are.

Waiting for Obama to denounce those who slander Joseph Smith (Bill Maher, Larry “El Nutso” O’Donnell, etc.).
Smell the hypocrisy.

“yet you drop an I-Phone 3 feet onto a carpeted floor, it’s broken, beyond repair” – AnotherComment
An interesting theory, completely disproved by an actual iPhone 5 drop test:
Nice to see so many of you regurgitating whatever your *paid* (read: conflict of interest) ministers are telling you about Mormons, much of which I’ve never heard taught in my church despite over 40 years in the faith.
I imagine I could make up a bunch of boloney about your faiths and presume it represents your beliefs, but we Mormons don’t behave that way.
Redhotfuzz. Do the phrases "milk before meat" and "lying for the Lord" mean anything to you. It takes no time at all to find the info you claim you have never heard in your 40 years with the church. Packer said not all truths is useful, but I say you cannot hide truth. And don't forget the convenient revelations of no more polygamy (just when the USA said no statehood with polygamy in place), and no more no black priesthood (conveniently just when the IRS was investigating church's with discrimination and threatening their non profit status)......makes you go hmmmmmmmm.

Why do Stewart & Maher pander to liberals? Because it’s easy to make idiots laugh.

I knew I liked girls before kindergarten (I’m a guy). How can one not get “an inkling” that one might be gay/lesbian until his/her late twenties?
I’m 43, and AC/DC and Zeppelin are still staples on my playlist. In addition, of course, to newer groups like Arctic Monkeys and Black Keys.
You’re never too old to rock!

So Marriott (a Mormon) sells porn in his hotels and he’s a “hypocrite.”
But an LDS-church-owned television station refuses to air something that’s against its core principles and it’s “censorship.”
So which is it, people? Or does it depend on which best fits your argument at the moment?

“You must believe the Jesus Christ of the Bible(not the one from the BOM) died for your sins.”
Pssst….He’s the exact same Guy!
“Putting your faith in a book, that has been proven false, whos prophets have been proven false, and whos former members have proven false seems dangerous.”
Care to back these statements up with some actual evidence? Care to identify your own faith so we can point out similar disproving “facts,” which are certain to exist?
I’d love to hear what some of you people hear from your pulpits on Sundays regarding Mormons. Oh wait, I am hearing it right now.
There’s nothing more hypocritical than a bigoted “Christian.”

Nice to see some of you are diligently reading those anti-Mormon pamphlets your preachers are giving you. Ignorance is a comfy blanket indeed.
Perhaps some of you should try and…oh, I dunno…talk to an *actual Mormon* sometime to find out what he/she *really* believes rather than rely on your local *paid* minister (nope, no conflict of interest there) to educate you on Mormon theology?
“I meant what I typed and I think your belief is as foolish as you feel mine is.”
I don’t feel your belief is foolish. I feel it’s incomplete. That’s a big difference.
What’s offensive is being called a “cult” simply because we disagree with Evangelicals on the interpretation of gospel concepts as explained in the Bible. Conflicting interpretations are not rare, hence the existence of Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc. Yet Mormons are a “cult” and Catholics are not, correct? Joseph Smith sees God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ = cult. Juan Diego sees the Virgin Mary = not a cult. Pat Robertson receives revelation from God regarding imminent disasters that don’t actually happen = not a cult. Please explain the double standard here.
I believe your interpretation of the Bible is incorrect, and I also believe you are incorrect on the existence of non-Biblical (even modern-day) prophets. But I’m not going to call you a “cult.” I don’t understand how a particular sect of Christianity feels they own the dictionary definition of the word “Christian.” I am very much a Christian, despite what the Evangelical thread says.
I bear you no ill will, but will defend my faith when necessary. God bless.

“You have been very militant in this article, which is unusual for a Mormon.” – TrollTrainer
“Militant?” In what way, exactly? Did I impugn anyone else’s beliefs?
“Evangelical churches pay their pastors, usually a pittance, what they can.”
Odd, I can probably name at least a half-dozen Evangelical ministers who have built multi-million-dollar empires from their ministry. And show it in their own personal lifestyles. Is Mitt Romney loaded? Sure. Did any of it come from my tithes? No.
“We are not little mini-gods who will one day have worlds of our own to save.”
Hmm, wasn’t it CS Lewis who said “It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which,if you say it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship?” Mormons believe in the infinite potential of man as God’s literal children. That concept is less strange to me than the thought I could live forever yet stop learning and progressing.
“Yet current scholarship now has fragments going back to 100AD that all match up.”
Mormons don’t believe the Bible to be false. We believe it to be missing important gospel truths that have been lost/removed from it over the years. The historical fragments found do nothing to dispel that belief.
“Lehi introduced horses to this continent.”
Not correct. Horses were mentioned in the book of Ether, dated to around 2500 BC,

Indeed. Funny how the guy who made his living in the private sector (Romney) is considered not-conservative, but the guy whose bread has been buttered by the US taxpayer since time began (Newt Gingrich) is.
These are strange, strange days. You gotta give it to Gingrich: the gullible hang on his every soundbite.
January 23, 2012 at 9:16pm
We Mormons certainly won’t vote for a serial adulterer like Newt Gingrich.
I wouldn’t vote for Jon Huntsman or Harry Reid (both Mormons), so your theory is weak.
Guess who else Mormons voted for overwhelmingly? John McCain. George Bush. Ronald Reagan. None of them Mormons as far as I know.
