Glenn: Chris Matthews is a religious bigot

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Isn’t it great when the leftist media decides to shed their image as “loving left” to show off their true colors? Chris Matthews decided to go on Ed Schultz’s show (ratings power combo!!!!) and not only ridicule Mitt Romney, but he also disparaged his entire religion in the process and said the GOP was ready to “outsource” the presidency to a Mormon. He then called it a cult, and threw some other insults in there for good manner. How long until all those media watchdog groups come out and start demanding advertisers leave MSNBC? Come on, we’re waiting…

WATCH the video:

The Blaze reports:

When asked by host Ed Schultz whether he thought the region was “going to be rough terrain” for Romney, Matthews argued that Americans are “willing to outsource it [the election] to a Mormon.”

He added:

It seems to me if they can win– it’s almost like calling up India or somewhere in the third world to get your computer fixed, you don’t care whose fixing it, just fix the damn computer. They want to get rid of Obama, so they’re willing to vote for a guy they don’t like and probably wouldn’t trust his religion.

He also made a reference to the “three cultists” — who, for Matthews, are those running — two Catholics and a Mormon.

“America, religious bigotry on display. This guy is a bigot. A total and complete bigot,” Glenn said when he first heard the audio.

Editor’s Tangent: Now, you might be wondering why this isn’t a bigger story. After all, the left is still wrapped up in whatever Rush Limbaugh said over a week ago. Could it be because the MSNBC power line-up of Matthews, Schultz, and Sharpton who all appear in the MSNBC clip couldn’t attract a single viewer? If Chris Matthews bashes an entire religion on MSNBC but no one is there to hear it, did he make a sound….

Despite Chris Matthews’s total lack of cultural and political relevance, Glenn decided to take apart his argument as it isn’t right for such hatred to just be left unchallenged, even if no one was watching MSNBC.

“Listen how he’s taking content of character. ‘I don’t care. I don’t care who’s doing it just fix this. Isn’t that a good thing in American politics.’ Everything he’s saying is wrong,” Glenn said.

“We’re saying we want somebody we believe in that stand by our values. He’ll try to make this they went for Santorum so they didn’t want to outsource. They went to the Catholic, and in the third place was the Catholic,” Glenn said. “You have an amazing story in the south of people being decent, and looking for values, and if they find them in the Mormon. If they find them in the two Catholics. If they find them in the Methodist they’ll vote for him. This is a remarkable story.”

“It goes against everything that the left say we are. They say they’re open‑minded. They say they’re inclusive. Not at all. Not at all,” Pat added.

“I don’t give a flying crap if he was purple. I don’t care. I care about his character, and I care about his policies. That’s what the south just proved,” Glenn added.

Glenn concluded the segment saying, “I have no problem defending my faith with reasonable people who aren’t using lies and smears against me. I have no problem. I’m not trying to convert you. You want to do your church. You want to be atheist whatever I don’t care. I don’t care. This is America. We all stand together, and we defend each other’s right to worship God the way you worship God unless you’re blowing people up. We’re all cool. Just be cool with each other. But the lies that are coming out are absolutely outrageous, and I say this with real indignation.”

The initial reaction to the audio is below:

    Chris Matthews shows clearly and loudly the hypocrisy of his radical ideology; the matter is very simple, if you do not tow the party line (like a good little communist) then you are either, to him, a threat, clueless or insane…and any of the last three need to be disposed of.

    Chris Matthews and his buddy in the Oval Office have a problem with the 1st Amendment’s call for freedom of religion.  The word “freedom,’ they believe, is to be enjoyed by Democrats, not Republicans.  The word “religion,” drives them nuts.  It means that a citizen’s belief in their religion holds a higher place than belief in the government or state.  This is intolerable to the man whose election would see the retreat of the seas and his MSNBC mouthpiece. 

    The Bible of Mormans and Catholics and Christians says, “There shall be no gods before Me.”
    Sorry, Obama.  Though you believe otherwise, you are dust and to dust you will return.

    People like Chris Matthews are inexcusable.  However, I will say that there is no way I will pull the lever for Romney–and it has zero to do with him being a Mormon.  It has everything to do with my opinion that the man is a complete fraud.  He has time and again demonstrated that he leads based on expediency, not truth or honesty.  He’ll choose what’s pragmatic over what’s right.  In other words, he has no firm principles.  I don’t care how many businesses you may show me he’s “rescued”.  He made horrible decisions as a governor and he can’t make up his mind what he stands for.  He is a fraud.  This nation is clearly NOT ready to turn over a new leaf if this is the kind of man they will vote for.  I’ll be leaving the slot for president blank this time around.  It sickens me, but I will not vote FOR someone just to vote AGAINST another.  The alcoholic known as “America” has not hit rock bottom, yet, apparently.

     Well I will support ABO.   This country will not have its principles changed overnight with Romney clearly.  But if Obama is re elected this country is done.  It may be done with Mitt but I know that I can have my conscience at ease knowing I help prevent Obama in another 4 years.

    What is sad more than Chris brainless Matthews..  I was watching the 5 the other day and Beckels replacement was a woman who said something about big love on HBO is about the Mormons… and the other 4 said absolutely nothing about that not being true!  and the producers didn’t even correct it!!  So the stupid folks don’t all belong to PMSNBC, Fox has got some as well.  As for being Mormon myself I don’t remember my father or grandfather having more than one wife.  There are groups out there who call themselves fundamentalists Mormons but that is like entering a wild burro in the Kentucky derby and calling him Secretariat and expecting him to win.

    So, Chris Matthews is saying his own religion is a cult? His Catholic bishop needs to call him in for a private conversation.

  • Anonymous

    Chris Matthews is a Catholic so him calling his own church a cult would make no sense. I think he may be referring to how a large portion of evangelicals see both the LDS and Catholic churches as cults so he’s speaking from that perspective and didn’t do a good job that he’s not giving his own view.

He is honest, has integrity, good husband and father, and will do what’s right for our country. He can beat Obama, and I don’t believe either of the others can. Check out his record from a true source, and you will find it not bad as you are thinking. I am sorry you have that impression of him.

    So Robert, If it came down to Romney or Obama, you would vote “present”? How does that help America? Even if you consider it voting for the least of two evils, at least it puts someone in office who will follow the lead of conservatives in Congress rather than fight against them every step of the way. Can you not see the difference?

    I’m curious, if Romney’s religion is really a zero factor in your decision, what specifically has Romney done to make you so utterly against him? Was it giving the people of Massachusetts the healthcare system they wanted? Do you prefer leaders, like Obama, who go against the will of the people to force their ideas on the people? That’s called tyranny whether it comes from the left or the right.

    When Ronald Reagan was governor of CA, he raised taxes higher than any preceding governor and signed more pro-choice laws than any governor before him. But he turned out OK as president after he flip-flopped on those issues, didn’t he?

     so he made horrible decisions as Governer of Massachusetts? so why did he win that state with 72 per cent of the vote March 6th ?

    The sad thing is all that Glen is saying doesn’t seem to matter to 50% of the population. Most people have no idea about history or care. hey listen to celebrities or sports hereos. Well if this sports guy likes Obama I’ll vote for him, or he is wearing a certain jersey WOW  or some celebrity.  People are so involved in themselves and what the next 1 hit wonder is that day or what the women on the view says.  You can lie right to 50% of the population WHY because there not listening or do they care.  Obama got into office because 50% have no idea what he is or what he stands for.  He’s black, first black president must be a good guy.  Celebrities love him, MTV love him, look at all the sports guys love him. He must be the right guy.

    Mathews once worked for a Mormon, Frank Moss, Dem. Senator from Utah. He should be ashamed to speak about Mormons in such a distasteful and false manner.

    A family member of mine worked for the Miss America pageant two years ago when Mathews was a judge. I was told that he was the rudest and most arrogant person that they have ever had as a judge-nobody could stand him. Rush was the most liked, even by the liberals who liked him.

     I would take into consideration the opinion the overall 15 million member Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) church than I would the opinion of one person.
    “The word cult has many meanings, including a technical religious one.
    The Mormon Church is not “standard” historic Christianity as Mormons
    point out in their witness. They think they have something new and
    valuable to say religiously.
    Most of the public does not think
    doctrine, but danger when they hear the term cult. He imagines scary
    folk living in compounds drinking Kool-aid, not Harry Reid or Mitt
    Romney.
    In that popular sense, Mormonism is not a cult and should
    scare no American. Mormons have been faithful citizens, dying in our
    wars for republican values. Does Rick Perry’s pastor friend acknowledge
    this truth? Can a Mormon die for the Republic in battle, but still not
    serve as commander in the White House?” http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-faith/post/why-evangelicals-must-stand-up-to-anti-mormon-bigotry/2011/10/10/gIQA06PqZL_blog.html

    Chris Matthews is Catholic. It appears to me that his context was referring to them as a sizable portion of evangelicals do, seeing the LDS and Catholic churches as both cults. So he’s saying that evangelicals who consider them cultists are willing to overlook it as long as Obama is defeated in the fall, and isn’t necessarily giving his view on the matter. A clarifying statement would be nice from him though if that’s what he was doing.

    While it is important to get the most conservative GOP candidate possible through primaries, the general election will pose an entirely different question. I agree that Romney has shown a pragmatic side that is troubling since our goal is to turn the ship around and head back to sanity. But to call him a fraud is a extreme. I think he could at least turn the ship in the right direction.

    We can feel very good about Romney as president. But, I believe any of the top 3 GOP candidates will make a great president, not just be better than Obama.

    Matthews himself is Catholic. He doesn’t think his own church is a cult, that’d just be silly. He’s talking about how some evangelicals see things where THEY are the ones who consider both churches to be cults. So he’s saying those evangelicals who consider them to be members of cults are overlooking religion since they consider beating Obama to be more important.

    I think some of the advertising in the general ought to use these clips that say Catholics and Mormans are “cults”.  Does this man, Chris Matthews, have any sanity left?  He seems to have lost touch with reality; at least when he was working for Bill Clinton, that President kept him in the real world.  The Obama Presidency encourages fantasy and has Matthews believing that all you have to do is say it and the “people” will believe.  Duh!!  Isn’t that what “cult” religions do; Chris Matthews who is really grounded in cultism, you or the men running for the nomination in the Republican primaries?

    The Latter-Day Saints (or Mormons) do not have their own Bible.  They use the King James version Bible along with the Book of Mormon together.  The Book of Mormon is also a testament of Jesus Christ and the records kept within the book were to try and help prove the Bible to be true and also to support the teachings of Jesus.

    Matthews apparently missed my memo on the same topic last week. 

    I’m not a Romney voter – but if your reason for objecting to Romney is his religion – you’re a bigot.  Plain and simple.

    Matthews is a bigot.  And that’s the nicest thing I’ve had to say about him in quite a while.

    I am not shocked by Matthews, but I continue to be surprized by the continuing ignorance of the public toward members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – the “Mormons”. It has the 4th largest membership of all churches in the U.S. and is hardly a cult. The center of the religion is belief in Jesus Christ as the Savior just as its name states and - the same as all Christian denominations. Mormons do not pray to, through, or worship anyone or anything other than Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ.
    Mormons believe in being “born again” through baptism in water, just the same as Jesus Christ was baptized. In these ways, Mormons are exactly the same as any other Christian. In other doctrine, there may be differences, but so are there doctrinal differences between any and all other Christian denominations – including Catholicism.
    One of the most highly regarded doctrines that Mormons revere is to allow all persons to worship however they choose, without reservation. Period. I believe that is similar to other Christian denominations. And if for some reason other denominations are not giving the same respect and tolerance of others, they need to re-read the Bible – the cornerstone of the Mormon religion just as it is of amy other Christian denominations.
    If, after having read this, one still chooses to believe that a Mormon is not a Christian, just like any other Christian, then this a personal choice – Just like Chris Matthews. And who, I want to ask, wants to be like him??

    About a month ago just for the heck of it I put on MSNBC (I would rather set my hair on fire and put it out with a hammer)- they said something so nasty and outrageous I just had to comment. Spent a ton of time filling in all of the required fields- wrote my comment- no profanity or nasty words- it kind of stalled for a moment (as if someone had read it?) and it wouldn’t accept it and told me I had to fill in all of the required fields (which I already had done). What it proved to me was that they didn’t give a darn about my or anyones opinion. I should have known that from the start. They are nothing but hating freaks. Also with nonexistant ratings.

    The American people will wake up to this absolute undeniable bias media and they will lose in the end. Not until the church of Jesus Christ  wakes up and humbles itself before the Lord and prays for foegiveness of a lost country and turns from their sinfull ways, not until then will God heal their land. The church has remained silent and has comprimised with the world that morality can not be legislated while the country has passed immorale legislation one after another. The church has allowed beginning in the 60′s that God be legislated out of America while remaining silent. The church has comprimised with the world comprimising its most fundemental and basic teachings of Christ. We can elect conservatives but until the repents God will not heal this terminally Ill country. To be a nation under God we must strive to be individuals under God. It is as simple as that. America decided God was no longer needed. Look around at how well that has worked out for America.

    CHRIS MATTHEWS,
    I just listened to a video of you.  I believe that you are a bigot.  You were demeaning Mormons,  Catholics, and the voters of the South. You referred to all of them as “CULTS.”  Your intent, I believe, was to attack MITT ROMNEY and support Obama who is a MUSLIM.  I dislike Obama, not because he is a Muslim, but because his policies are destroying our nation.   Obama has committed many ACTS OF TREASON against the United States, and he will be charged and convicted for these Acts.  I believe he is a peon of George Soros, and their goal is to establish a New World Order, and they are collapsing the economy of the United States deliberately.  George Soros will also be convicted for his crimes.  Chris, stop attacking Mormons, who are outstanding people.  MITT ROMNEY can and WILL defeat Obama.  This is your reason for attacking Mormons.  Obama and Soros are shaking in their boots at the thought of  ROMNEY becoming the Republican Presidential Candidate.   There was a poll that disclosed that if the election were held yesterday, Romney would defeat Obama 48 to 41.

    I’m not disagreeing with the whole of the thoughts here, but I am VERY disappointed about something:
    The story above claims Chris called Mormons a cult, when IN FACT what he said is it “is a cult as THEY see it”. He was clearly referring to what he thinks the beliefs are of the “evangelical” VOTERS in the states they were talking about, not his own opinion.
    This story lays out a false accusation of what Chris said, and we detest when they do that to us!
    I absolutely do not appreciate most anything Chris has to say, and sure, he has proven himself to be biased on many ocassions, but will not stand for watching Glenn stoop to spewing such a false accusation. This calls for a retraction!

When has this country ever needed a person with his qualifications as our leader?  You know he will be asking for help continuously from the Lord to quide  him. How can you ever want someone else to be the President in these dangerous times?  I just can’t understand you on this!! Please explain why you would no support him??????

    MSNBC is still on the air for only one reason as I see it. They have the ultra-deep pockets of Bill Gates at their disposal. That, and they are a cable station, so the ZERO viewership doesn’t matter. Needless to say, this tells us a great deal about where Bill Gates is coming from politically. However, if there ever was a capitalist, couldn’t we safely say that Bill Gates IS that capitalist?!? MSNBC is probably the premier obama boot-licker on cable TV. Yet isn’t obama the most anti-capitalist “president” in recent memory? Doesn’t matter, right? Gates has purchased himself a “president” who has aspirations of being a dictator, and isn’t that almost exactly what Gates is when it comes to his near-monopoly regarding what operating system is pre-loaded on literally every new computer except those found in an Apple Store?!? So Gates/obama seems like a match made in Heaven as far as they’re concerned (Hades as far as I’m concerned). Both have totalitarian aspirations, but I am hopeful obama is nothing more than a has-been come January 2013. I confess that I am scared to death of what he will do between November 7 and January 20 if he discovers that he won’t be enjoying a 2nd term. That is a lot of time to play the presidential pardon game. I worry that he’ll will make Bill Clinton’s presidential pardon list look tiny by comparison.Chris Matthews — what can you say about the guy that hasn’t already been said?!? This most recent tirade of his against Romney only serves to further expose what the liberals have made no secret of from the beginning — the ONLY GOP candidate that they are afraid of is ROMNEY! WHY?!? Because they know that he is the ONLY GOP candidate who can beat obama! Otherwise, why would they spend all their time lambasting Romney, and courting Santorum?!? They want Santorum to run against obama because they know, and I know, that obama can defeat Santorum. Yet the GOP keeps shooting itself in the foot with their infighting and internal, infernal mudslinging. If the GOP isn’t savvy enough to recognize what the so-called democrats already know, than we deserve to lose! I have been a Romney supporting for ONE overriding reason……to make obama a ONE TERM “president”! Shouldn’t that be the wish of all conservatives?? We need to show that we are smart enough and like-minded enough that we can put our support behind ONE candidate NOW, rather than waiting until we are forced to do so, by which time our candidate will either be the wrong one, or the right one who has been marginalized and weakened by his own party and fellow candidates. If ever there was a time for all of the conservatives in this country to band together behind the one candidate that obama and his party fear above all others — IT IS NOW!! Romney is NOT my favorite candidate, but I have supported him because I can see the handwriting on the wall. I’m not extra smart or clever or anything! I’ve just been paying attention! And that means paying attention to the liberals just as much as the conservatives, if not more! The libs would give anything to keep obama from having to run against Romney. We must recognize that, and put aside personal preferences as I did long ago, and support the man who gives obama nightmares! Even though I think Romney would make a very good president, I’m of the school of thought that says ANYONE WOULD BE BETTER THAN obama! Romney keeps coming out on top no matter how I look at it. I pray that conservatives in all the various candidate camps will come to recognize the obvious before it is too late. We want the strongest Romney possible, and that means supporting him now and not waiting until you are forced to months down the road. ROMNEY 2012!

    i spent 12 and a half years in a religious cult, and then did some studying about them in general.  morman’s and those called jehovah’s witnesses and catholic’s; (i think they are the biggest ‘cults’ in America) are easily proven to be cults by simply looking at their foundational statements.  They are both based on stuff made up by humans that are based on lies, and not based on the Bible.  (Many catholic’s claim their religion is ‘from the Bible’, but the vast majority of catholic teachings have nothing to do with the Bible at all.)  Galatians 1:8 and 9 is so plain and simple that i am dumb-founded when i see Believers who are not acquainted with it.  i do not think of myself as a ‘bigot’ at all. i do not find any animosity toward cult members within myself at all.  i do feel sorry for them, but i do not dislike them, not do i wish for bad things to happen to them.   Calling a “lie” a “lie”, as i am doing right now, is not ‘bigoted’, it is simple honesty.   i am deeply anti-obama, i hate abortion and liberal thinking in general; but when i see  the statement “The Truth lives here” i always wonder…  “How did they think that up?”

    in our lives, and the book of Mormon is the most correct book on the earth. It was written
    by prophets of Jesus Christ starting 600 years before Christ came to the earth. The Book
    of Mormon is only another testament of Jesus Christ just like the Bible is, as long as it is
    written correctly! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true and living

    Obama’s religion is Marxism via Progressivism. Islam’s stated goal is to rule the world. They belive that is the only way there can be “justice” in the world. The Progressives think they can help Islam dominate all others and when the religious wars are over take out Islam so the only institution left to worship is the state.

    Once you understand the Progressives agenda everything Obama does falls right into place and even becomes predictable.

    Mathews made some rather nasty remarks about Netanyahu about a week or so ago, saying [to Netanyahu] “don’t interfere in our elections.”  He said it twice, and it was with a very, very nasty tone.

    There’s no evidence that Netanyahu was here involving himself in internal American politics. I think he would be stupid to do that.

    Of course, American administrations, including Obama’s, have allegedly involved themselves in internal Israel politics, such as trying to favor Kadima over Likud.

    I am an Atheist/Free Thinker and view people based on their character, personal standards, and goodness (not on their dogma- unless they are Islamic or outright insane evil-doers).  I respect and love many Christians, and other beliefs.  I have a real issue with this Liberalism in America, it is destroying any fabric of both emotional and intellectual honesty.  Facts doesn’t mesh well with Liberals, it is an obvious backdoor infiltration of anti-American ideology that is being promoted by these brainwashed people.  They make no sense because they haven’t learned to have an original thought without a lingering agenda behind it.  I am proud of people standing up for what they believe and calling lies as lies.  While I am on this subject..Atheism is not “anti-God” it is a statement of “no-God”.  Many things religions teach, especially about Love and Compassion and Truthfulness are things I think any person with a ounce of moral and social fiber would wholeheartedly agree with.  Isn’t it about time Americans should join hands and all agree to stop this internal bickering and dedicate ourselves to restoring this Nation back to the special place of Freedom, Justice, and Integrity?  Our children will judge us all for what we do, and for what we don’t do.  If you have a Higher Power then you shall be judged in that manner too, perhaps.  AlI I know is that if we don’t change for the better the worst is most assuredly going to happen, leaving many smiles on Liberals that wish to ruin this Nation and turn it into a Globalist Culture with pandering towards insane and inhumane doctrines.

    I really do not think he was saying that evangelicals consider Mormons/Catholics to be cults. I really do think he has let himself be compromised in his ethics and journalistic values. At one time, I admired Chris Matthews. I have watched him gradually deteriorate in his reporting. I think he got on a slippery slope and submerged his internal rightness and wrongness so that he does not know what he really believes now. If one were able to play his clips from his first years as a commentator until now, I think you would be surprised at the downward spiral. I feel this because, each time he said something outrageous, I noted it because I did admire him. It was shocking to actually see. I just pity him now. The reason I think they should play the clips is to help defeat Obama. Just to make it clear, I am not obsesses with trying to defeat Obama because he is Democratic (as the left keeps trying to play that phrase, “defeat Obama”). I want to defeat Obama because I truly believe that he is destroying our country. I have never felt that about a President, even if I didn’t vote for him or belonged to the opposite party. This election is so serious that all Americans should ask themselves if they can really RISK OUR COUNTRY’S FUTURE just to re-elect him on some preverted idea of political correctness. This time in world history is a nexus point, which means the decision can change major movements in the world’s directionl.

     We Mormon’s use the King James Bible when English is the language of the readers. In Germany, we use German Bibles, mostly those translated by Martin Luther.

He has the gift of discernment and problem solving. No doubt that God has blessed him with everything needed to beat Obama,  Strengthen America , and Lead this nation. It makes me sad when people judge him wrongly. My husband was falsely accused and slandered in the liberal media, and it is horrifying to be on the receiving end of that. Mitt is handling all of the attacks against him with dignity and quiet strength. I 100% support such a man as this to become the next President of the United States.

    There is a little known and heretofore unstudied mutant subspecies of the human race.  These less than human mutants can be observed on MSNBC, HBO, and similar extremist left-wing networks.  They do not have human hearts.  Each of these as yet unstudied strange life forms has a squeaky, rusty, cast iron sump pump in the middle of the chest cavity which courses pure liquified hate through their veins.   When these mutants becomes ill, they only need call any nearby mechanic or appliance repair man.  If it were possible to turn off the emotion of hate by flipping a light switch, and if someone were to flip that switch, the entire democrat party would immediately lapse into a coma.  Those that do not become comatose are an even lower life form; addlebrained left wing moon-bats that have been sleeping upside down too long.

I have no doubt that he is bigoted against Mormons, too, but we will have to wait for him to direct his venom in that direction for another time.

    I don’t like matthews. I do like Beck.  But in this very rare case, matthews is right, mormons are a cult and not true Christians as defined in the Holy Bible.  They don’t believe God of the Bible is the only Deity, and that we have the ability to become gods ourselves. They don’t believe our salvation comes though Faith in Christ, but in works.  They believe in 3 other books besides the Bible as devinely inspired.  An angle named moroni left golded tablets in New York. Really? Don’t jump down my throat, do your research into their core beliefs. The Bible is clear that nothing is to be added…by anybody, even Mr. Smith. They have had to keep changing thier doctrines over the many decades to move it closer to the mainstream (as some of their original doctrines are really out there). Sorry Glenn, love ya, but you need to get grounded in truth and leave that cult.   They Bottom line is, matthews and their buddies on the left hate Christians of all faiths, Jews, and any religion besides islam. They like islam, simply because islam hates all Christians and Jews also, so they can really relate to them.  It’s not their place to discuss the faith of the candidates in this way, and their two-faces are showing again. Oh….and this will really make me some friends…Catholics are cult members too. That is one messed up religious structure. Mark 7:13 talks about the traditions of men that make the Word of God of no effect. This is a classic example of this truth.  They are no different in their made up rituals and structures than the Pharisees during Christ’s earthly ministry. It’s sad, and we pray for all religions that are almost there, but have fallen off the narrow path that leads to Life. They accept Christ as God, but then they go off into their own little made up world. We pray they come back to God, without their own inventions that only serve as a brick wall that separates them from Him.

    Conservative Evangelicals have called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints a Cult for a very long time, and when Matthews repeats the evangelical hate, he’s the bigot? 
    Conservative Evangelicals make a big point of pressing their view that Mormons aren’t Christians … and now Glenn Beck calls Matthews a bigot when he repeats it? I don’t like Matthews comments, but let’s put blame where the blame ought to go … and it ain’t Chris Mathews. He’s just repeating the vitriol the Baptist Convention and the Pentacostal Union preach from their hundreds of pulpits every Sunday. Just for the record … I’m a Mormon.

    Further, for the record … The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, commonly referred to as Mormons, are as their name implies, Christians.  Their religion hinges on the saving and redeeming power of Jesus Christ.  Here is what they are not:  They are not Catholics.  They are not Protestants.  They are not Evangelicals.  Why?  Because they reject the doctrines of the Creeds embraced by those three branches of Christianity.  The LDS Church is another branch of Christianity.  I would assert that there are four major branches of Christianity in the United States:  Catholicism, Protestantism, Evangelicalism, and Mormonism.  I further assert that there are other branches of Christianity that do not fit within those four major branches. Worldwide, there are more than four major branches.

    Evangelicals seem to have appointed themselves the King Makers of who is defined as Christians and who aren’t.  They come right out by saying that Mormons aren’t Christian and they rise questions about whether Catholics are.  Protestants and themselves of course are safe.

    Rick Santorum on the other hand recently stated in a speech (to a Catholic audience) that the only true Christians are the Catholics, because during the reformation those that parted ways with the Catholic Church to form Protestantism were excommunicated and lost all religious authority and were cut off from Christianity.It seems to me that about the only people that recognize the Christian nature of all four of the major branches of Christianity are the Mormons.

    Do you have any Mormom friends? Why not ask them what they believe or better yet, go and see for youself what they are about and dare I say, go to church with them. It’s ridiculous that people will just assume all the lies that the media, internet, etc, sprew forth instead of doing your own homework. Adding or taking away from, as you mention, was specific to the Book of Revelation; the Bible had not yet even been put together. Many books were left out or changed at the discretion of those who gathered at the Council of Nicea and changes have been made since. What about the missing Books from the Bible? Where did they go and why were they left out? Here’s a link for ya. http://www.icwseminary.org/lostbooks.htm

    PS The official name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and he is the cornerstone of the religion.

Matter came into being from nothing, and millions upon billions of years later life formed. Yeah, I really trust those scientists to get the narrative right. Just like man-made global warming is a proven fact; right. The reason why they have to disprove scientifically not just Mormon claims, but religion as a whole, is because of power. They know if people go on thinking that we evolved from an ameoba and that they know best, it keeps people chained in their ignorance.

    I have heard the “works” accusation more times than I can count and it is a completely FALSE accusation and misunderstanding of our doctrine.  Salvation is only possible because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and love for us — His grace.  Mormons emphatically believe that the first step anyone has to take to return to God is to have faith in Jesus Christ.  Mormons believe doing good works are important because Jesus commanded us to serve and love others and follow the commandments because by doing as He asked, our faith in Him grows stronger.

    I agree… Mathews and Co. are just bigots.  But let’s not lose ourselves in the fog while trying to defend religious freedom.  Most people know that the Mormons are nothing if not secretive.  What Mormonism hides away inside it’s Temples IS shockingly non-Christian.  Main-stream, Words-of-Christ-Christian, I mean.  Especially pre-1990′s before they changed the ceremonies. Now, don’t make me have to give details to reply to knee-jerk defensiveness, dear Mormons; because if you’ve BEEN through the Temple, you KNOW don’t want me telling people all of that stuff at once.  

    Then there are the special libraries of hidden embarrassing history that the Mormons are famous for.  I mean, the whole Mark Hofmann episode was about Gordon Hinckley and others trying to buy up damning documents so they could hide them away.

    My point is that Mormons should think twice before simply reacting with feigned shock and charges of bigotry when the left uses the word “cult”.  There is no doubt that if Romney is the nominee, and he starts looking strong against Odumbass, they are going to trot out ALL of the evidence in support of it being a crazy cult, and much, much worse.  It’s one thing to be running a major religion and marketing it with lovely pictures of squeaky-clean families, with no mention of the strangeness inside the Temple.  It is one thing to keep an embarrassing history hidden from new potential converts.   But, Mormonism hasn’t had to take on the ferocious intensity of a powerful, resourceful, liberal media, taking orders from a White House falling in the polls.  Once they decide to risk appearing to be “intolerant” in order to win, (a line they didn’t have to cross last election) we already know, there will be no depths they won’t sink to.  

    With the amount of fodder that lies hidden in Mormonism, once that dam cracks and breaks, it could get really, really, ugly.

    In all reality, Chris was pointing out the bigotry of the Evangelical right, who see others who do not share their interpretation of biblical theology as cults.  Chris, in what I got out of it, was trying to share the mindset of the Evangelicals and that they would ‘outsource’ to a Mormon if he could beat Obama, being that they believe Mormons are members of a cult.  I do not see this as being nearly as crazy as people are making it out to be.  The truth is many Evangelicals would not vote for a Mitt simply because he is a Mormon.  Remove the word Mormon and insert Black, Jewish, etc. and the nation would be up in arms.  Yet it puzzles me that few call out these Evangelicals for what they demonstrate as blatant bigotry.  So Chris Matthews may be slightly bigoted, but the people he describes are much more so.

    The Mormons that came to my home admitted that the Book of Mormon, the current Prophet and the Temple trump the King James Bible’s authority.  One of the tests for a true “cult” is if they place another authority, written or otherwise, on the same level or above the Bible.  Glenn is miffed about some false accusations by this liberal, but the Mormon church does have some strange and non-traditional [Christian] teachings in their religion which he should challenge and disavow instead of acting like they don’t exist in their written creed.

    Just to be clear, those of us who are of the LDS faith don’t claim to be “traditional” Christians.  We know we believe some
    strange teachings that go against the norm.  If we didn’t we wouldn’t
    be Mormon, we’d be prodestant.  What we do is worship Jesus Christ as
    our Savior and Redeemer.  The full name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  That is why we consider ourselves Christian. You could call us non-creedal Christians or ancient Christians if that makes more sense to you, but it really doesn’t matter in the long run.  We don’t have to agree with theology entirely, but I’d bet we have most of our values in common.  That is what we should focus on, values and character, like Beck says.  Especially in a President, because that is what matters most.

    I think the real issue – for the non-mormon electorate – is this: When a presidential candidate of the LDS faith, who is known to have sworn an oath of loyalty and allegiance, consecrating all that he has (his time, talent and resources) to the Mormon church – and has done so as a covenant made with God in the holiest of places, the temple – should this person’s worldview merit further scrutiny?
    Likewise, in the case of a presidential candidate or Supreme Court nominee of the Islamic faith – a faith that for some reason, which I admittedly do not understand, is allowed the leeway for its adherents to implement Sharia Law in the land of America (although it will certainly be constitutionally challenged) – what are we to imagine if there is no further scrutiny of the candidate’s worldview in that instance?
    While Mormons are exemplary in living their christian values, and are patriotic americans – the same patrioticness can be said of other faiths in the land – it doesn’t appear that Romney has assuaged the fears and concerns over this whole issue with his church.
    Unlike JFK, whose church was based in a far country, Romney’s church in based right here in the U.S.
    While he seems like a good man of moral character, not unlike the other candidates, there are some deep questions he has yet to address.

Why don’t we all leave the judging up to the supreme Judge, our Savior. Knowing we all have differences and just get along.

    If you investigate the LDS Church you will find, it is set up like the church at the time of the Savior. With Apostles and Prophets etc, which would make you think who really is the non-traditional church.

    You are all wrong.  It has nothing to do with religion at all.     This has been an on going battle since the existence of the Democrat pary.   It has everything to do with anyone who is a Republican Conservative.   As long as a person is a liberal, anything goes.

    Why would Democrats skip over their own history from 1848 to 1900? Perhaps because it’s not the kind of civil rights history they want to talk about….perhaps because it’s not the kind of civil rights history they want on their website. The Democrat’s website is accurate when it says that the Democratic efforts for civil rights “began” with Truman in 1946, for there certainly is much about civil rights that they would rather not talk about before that time.

    Instead of perverting the black vote, they are now focused on the Christian vote.  But it has nothing to do with Christianity per say, but the fact that most Christians are Conservative Republicans.   

    Mr. Sharpton,  why would Americans think Obama is a Muslim?     Could it be we heard him say he is Muslim and then was corrected by George stephanoupolous in an interview?

    Actually, I am deeply conservative, and a practicing Christian.  What I cannot stand for is how Evangelical Christians tout their biblical interpretations as superior, and have the hubris to claim the litmus test for who is and who is not a Christian.  I am in no way a fan of Chris Matthews, or the liberal left.  I was simply pointing out that his explanation was made as is he were an Evangelical in the South having to pick, or ‘outsource’ as he put it, an election to someone not of their faith, and how that is a struggle for many of them.  My point is that it is a struggle based off of theological differences, and not political ones.  I have heard many self proclaimed Evangelicals swear they would never vote for a Mormon, no matter what the case.  That is the bigotry I see, and must point out.  No liberal indoctrination here Eyecancu (clever moniker btw).

    Yes. However, it may be a bit more complicated than that. When Romney gave his religion speech several years ago, there were things I wasn’t aware of regarding the Mormon church.

    I realize now the LDS doctrine emphatically embraces
    the U.S. Constitution, as it sees the Constitution as divinely inspired. For
    any patriotic American, there probably won’t be much argument over that
    assertion. The issue here is that the LDS Church (the religion) has
    indoctrinated its members into the notion of a divine document (the state) that
    comes from their God for their blessing. A blessing which came from the
    Providential hand on the history of America, with the advent of the
    Constitution, for the sole purpose of bringing about the “restoration” of the
    gospel – through the prophet Joseph Smith – and establishing the true church in
    order to prepare the earth for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Thus, the LDS
    doctrine purposely combines church and state. Therefore, at the very least, the
    line of separation between church and state amongst devout Mormons tends to be
    blurred.

    And all this through the reverence toward a so-called prophet with a very dubious history and character.

    Yet, no doubt, Mormons – like my friends who are Jehovah Witnesses – are exemplary of moral character. The same can be said for my friends who are devout in their Muslim faith.

    However, when it comes to running for the office of President, I have no issue with the Jehovah Witnesses. And, according to their doctrine, it never will be an issue.

    It seems to me (and I’m not the only one) there should be more scrutiny of Romney’s worldview.

  • Blake Perkins

    You mention deep questions, yet admit that Mormons are exemplary in living christian values and are patriotic Americans.  Seems to me that that should be a clear sign that they would be no less desirable a candidate than any other patriotic american.  It is the people that insist there must be some deep dark influence on the candidate from their church that continue to foment the distrust you mention.  If you look at their beliefs, they also swear to honor, obey and sustain the law of the land they live in.  So the question is, does the pledge of consecration you mention trump their honor for law?  I have never seen a court case where a Mormon claims they broke the law to uphold that pledge you mention.  I HAVE seen other religious people in court, however, use their religion as a basis for denying medical care, and other things, but never a Mormon.  So your argument is a red herring, plain and simple.

    I now am even further perplexed, as you have no problems with Jehovah’s Witnesses, yet they, like Mormons, reject classical trinitarianism (one of the main arguments Evangelicals have against Mormons – and they also classify Witnesses as a cult btw).  They, according to a quick wiki search, refuse to honor the American flag, see secular society as corrupt, and limit their interaction with non-Witnesses, so not celebrate common Christian holidays, and only a select few will stand in heaven with God and Jesus Christ.  Seems to me that their religion would merit a ‘deeper look’ as how it influences their worldview as well.  Another fallacious argument Lamanite.

    There’s no point in arguing. You Glenn Beck conspiracy theorists know how to take anything out of context. He said, “My Muslim faith,” as point of debate where blogs were saying he was a Muslim. He used this to open up an argument. He in-fact cleared up the matter instantly and said he was deeply offended. You cannot just watch clips of interviews, rather watch the interview

    I have Muslim friends. Not like “go out to the bar” type friends (they don’t drink), but they are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. They are the only religious people that won’t get into religious debates with an atheist. It’s this Muslim fear that bothers me.

    Sounds to me like Matthews is admitting the Mitt Romney can solve the problem (that’s a good thing), but he doesn’t care if Romney can fix it (the economy), because he’s not the right TYPE to be fixing it…. not the right religion, color, nationality, party, etc.   If that’s not “Bigotry”… I don’t know what is!   That’s the DEFINITION of a biggot (when he admits that Romney can do it but he doesn’t care because he’s the wrong color, religion, party, or whatever biggoted rational he is using for rejecting him regardless of his own belief that Romney may have the answers.

    When I find somebody who can solve my problem (be it a health problem, computer problem, car problem, or the economy)… I don’t reject a mechanic who can fix my car because he’s the wrong color!   I don’t reject a doctor who can fix my heart because he’s the wrong race!   I don’t reject a computer tech because he’s the wrong nationality!   I don’t reject a guy who can fix the economy because HE’S THE WRONG RELIGION!!!

    If he can fix it… I LET HIM FIX IT.   I don’t reject him because I know he can fix it but I’m a biggot!

  • Blake Perkins

    He is saying that the Evangelical Right are saying Romney is not the right TYPE.  If you watch the entire clip, you will see it is prefaced by statistics showing Evangelicals as a large part of the voting block in those states.  They then go on to talk about the struggle the Evangelical White voters have in accepting Romney BECAUSE of his faith and that to them, it would be like ‘outsourcing’.  It all makes sense if you listen to the entire clip.  I am not, by any means, a fan of Chris Matthews, but in this case, his argument is valid.  It is the Evangelical White voters who cant look past the end of their own nose, and would rather cut it off than see a Mormon in the White house.  Look at what happened with Romney in 2008 and how Huckabee continued to attack Romney well after McCain was the front runner.  The bigotry is not so much in Chris Matthews as it is in the bulk of the White Evangelical voters.

    The Evangelicals don’t believe Romney to be conservative at all-it has nothing to do with he being Mormon.   Romney is left of center, but not quite a liberal.

    Sorry RUFREE, but i personally know many Evangelicals and they DO espouse the belief that since Romney is a Mormon, voting for him is like voting for Satan himself.  Reference a website from the 2008 election cycle called Pastors for Huckabee ( here is the link  
    http://pastors4huckabeeblog.com/the-biblical-case-against-voting-for-a-mormon-for-president-why-christians-who-support-romney-actualy-violate-scripture/
    They actually correlate Mormonism and Romney with the Anti-Christ for heavens sake!  I have had several Evangelicals direct me to this website to back up their arguments against Romney.  I have no agenda here other than pointing out that the narrow mindedness of the Evangelical Right will possibly doom us to another 4 years of Obama.  Nothing more.

    I think in this case, Stu and Pat are right.  Matthews is talking about how he believes the people in the South, namely the Evangelicals, look at Mormons and Catholics.  I have read enough blogs and heard enough interviews to know that there is plenty of anti-Mormon sentiment on the far right.  The organization Evangelicals for Mitt Romney proves they don’t all feel that way, but there are plenty who do.  Matthews many very well be masking some of his own bigotry, but to pretend it doesn’t exist on the right is to turn a blind eye to reality.

    If we all came together on the things we agree on socially and not worry about doctrinal variances what a difference we could make in this country. 

    Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon Church said, “If it has been demonstrated that I have been willing to die for a Mormon, I am bold to declare before Heaven that I am just as ready to die in defending the rights of a Presbyterian, a Baptist, or a good man of any other denomination; for the same principle which would trample upon the rights of the Latter-day Saints would trample upon the rights of the Roman Catholic or of any other denomination who may be unpopular and too weak to defend themselves.” (Documentary History of the Church Vol.5, p. 498.)   

    We can either stand together, or fall divided.  The forces that hate religion are uniting and becoming more and more vocal.  As conservatives who believe freedom of religion is for ALL we must be come together.

    Let’s put aside our religious beliefs and concentrate on the political aspect of the proplem:

    Ask yourself how is it that in less than 250 years a single population of under 300 million people so dominated the planet for good. There are populations, countries, civilizations that have been around thousands of years. Our DNA is no different than theirs. We are not inherently smarter; we are not a special species; there is nothing that is differentiates us…..other than where we live.
    Look at the advancement in the world’s standard of living in the 19th and 20th centuries alone because of the United States. What makes it possible? Freedom. And the founding principles right in our Declaration:
    “We are all endowed by our Creator”….ergo, there is a GOD….with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
    Which ideological movement today advances the concept of life? Which ideology advances the concept of liberty? Not liberalism….in other words, not the Democrat Party. And which movement is advancing the whole notion of the pursuit of happiness? If you guessed liberalism, you would be wrong. They are never happy; have you ever seen them smile?

    Yes, I would agree most Christians believe the Constitution was divinely inspired. I suppose that is why we would historically see America as a Christian nation. I personally hold to that view. However, living in a pluralistic society – encompassing many faiths, beliefs and non-belief – I guess that is what makes the constitution so powerful. It is a document that accomadates all the above. In theory, even a devout Muslim could advance through the political heirarchy to become President.

    Could you, and others, embrace a person of that faith as your President, knowing they might hold very fundamental beliefs about a woman’s role – along with other strong doctrinal beliefs spelled out in the Koran – without a further vetting of their worldview.

    The LDS Church has a very good political neutrality policy. However, the issue isn’t about the general membership per say, but about the potential influence between the church leadership and a potential mormon president – the most powerful position in the land, which position is the face and representation of all the country’s citizenship. This would be new territory… just as in JFK’s time – however, with major differences.

    It is these differences that many are suspicious of, and want more answers to assuage their fears.

    As for good ol’ Harry, well… when your representing the land of Las Vegas, it is a no brainer that a politician would have to be a democrat. And, knowing that, outside Utah, the Las Vegas area has the most mormons per capita, it is a no brainer he couldn’t lose as a politician.

    In fact, having Harry in the membership, is a nice feather in the LDS’ cap – to prove the church is politically diverse. Granted, there are a diversity of political persuasions in the LDS church, but the Democratic Party platform, as presently constituted, is not consistent with the mormon values. Thus, Utah is a very red state.

    I would imagine most mormons, outside the leadership, find Harry rather embarrasing (just my opinion).

    I think most skeptical non-mormons will need more than the religion speech Romney gave back in 2007.

    Thanks for the great discussion, I appreciate being able to have a civil conversation. In the interest of full disclosure, I am Mormon myself and fully active in the LDS church. While I’m not sure if I’ll be voting for Romney yet, it is important to me to understand why some people might be skeptical of a mormon president, other than just disagreeing with mormon theology. I am trying to find a way to explain why I believe the Prophet would be completely uninterested in running the country and completely against influencing the President.  Let me know if these arguements hold any weight for you, I am just brainstorming here.

    1. The President of the Church (and other general church authorities) is simply way too busy.  I know that seems simplistic, but Thomas S. Monson is extremely busy with travel, preaching, and the organization and ministry of a worldwide church 14 million+ strong.

    2. The main thing the LDS Church leaders are concerned with is saving souls.  Bringing people to Christ. I know they bend over backwards to follow the laws, rules, and regulations here in the US and in other countries so as to be allowed to practice and to send missionaries out to preach.  In my opinion, illegally or unethically influencing any government leader directly would be disasterous to the growth of the church and is completely against everything we believe.

    3.  Consider these 2 of the “12 articles of faith” or basic LDS tenents, written by Joseph Smith.

    “11 We claim the privilage of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. 
    12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying honoring, and sustaining the law.”

    I think those two articles speak for themselvs.
    I am hoping these reasons are helpful.  I’m sure I could think of more given time.  I guess the trick now would be how to make examples like these widely known.  I don’t think Romney should focus on religious topics unless absolutely essential to his campaign, as they are very distracting, but perhaps they are essential now.  I don’t know if there is any way to know how many voters are really concerned about the LDS religion over political matters involving Romney as a candidate.
    Again, thank you for your insightful comments.

    I questioned a rumor that preachers were directing their parishioners to vote for Santorum and against Romney last weekend since I knew that an evangelical coalition had previously been formed to back Santorum.  On Monday a pastor in Florida who is backing Santorum called for Romney to denounce his “racist religion”, stating that no black, Indian, Latino or Jew would ever vote for Romney.  I didn’t want to believe that people of faith would be so evil.  However, I have received several replies to my query from evangelicals who verified these reports.  Sad commentary!  I could never attend a church where my minister would use his position as my spiritual leader to tell me for whom to vote.

    taric7, I’m talking about REAL science, that you can observe, test, and duplicate.  I’m a Bible-believing Christian who KNOWS that evolution and the Big Bang and millions and billions of years and Life from non-life and all of that is a fairytale, too. I don’t take anything just by totally blind faith; Jesus said “Come, let us reason together.”  I just can’t seem to get any of these wonderful Mormon American Patriots whom I truly do Love with all of my heart, especially Glen Beck, to even look at any real scientific evidence.  All of the real evidence – and there are piles of it – prove that the Book of Mormon is totally made up…none of it is the truth.  It is all scientifically proven to be a Fraud & fairytale.  I have no other motive to share this but that Glen says he stands for Truth – mostly I believe he does, but not when it comes to that fraud put out by that criminal, Joseph Smith…God calls him “FALSE prophet”.  Just check it out – Please.

    I appreciate your thoughtfulness in taking into account the observations and arguments I have been making. I only wish more LDS members would think like you. It is a pleasure to converse with an open-minded person. You are to be commended.

    As to your brainstorming thoughts, my feedback is as follows -
    Your #1 point: Not sure that carries much weight in that the leadership is structured through hierarchical delegation. Obviously, the LDS President isn’t going to inappropriately associate with a U.S. President. He’ll delegate through others. The point here is the difference between JFK’s situation and Romney’s: the Catholic Church leadership is not based in the U.S., and the Catholic Church doctrine is not geared toward an eventual theocracy based from America (my observation of the suspicions from non-Mormons).

    Your #2 point: I whole heartedly agree. However, Muslims and Jehovah’s Witnesses think the same way, let alone most Evangelicals. When it comes to politics, we don’t have any concerns with the Witnesses. Yet, I’m fairly certain there are many non-Muslims who would be most concerned with the worldview of a devout Muslim candidate for President. The point here would be – if it is true that a devout Mormon has taken a sacred oath to build up the LDS Church, how do you remove the natural suspicions that even in an indirect way, there is no influencing between church and state positions. I do know the one way is to allow it to happen (let the chips fall where they may, so to speak) and let’s see what actually happens over time. I’m actually open-minded enough to try the experiment. However, that still does not address the initial suspicions adequately enough.

    Your #3 point: These are good. I think most honorable citizens of the country would agree with these statements. The only part I would take issue with is the first part of article #12 – “We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates…” As a red-blooded American patriot, I don’t believe in being subject to anybody. I think Joseph should have kept it at “We believe in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law. Personally, as a result of our Founding Father’s convictions, and the documents they created, I think it is our duty to always challenge our government leaders in order to keep them honest to their proper role in government. Besides, We The People, are the government.

    Please keep in mind, I am not trying to bash or be hostile to your religion. I am only trying to bring up, what I believe, are natural, but serious, fears and suspicions by those outside the Mormon faith – which happen to be a significant amount of voters concerned over the issue of the separation of church and state.

    Being a mayor, governor, or even a member of congress, as a devout member of the LDS faith is not the issue – as those are elected officials representing relatively small constituencies within a district or region. Think Mormon elected officials from predominantly Mormon communities, or Muslim officials from areas with a predominant Muslim population. Yet,running for President really takes it up an exponential notch. The complexities of our pluralistic society demands that certain questions be addressed.

    While I don’t profess to know all the answers in addressing these concerns, I am encouraged by your thoughtful inquiries.

    People keep attacking Chris Mathews and accusing him of being biased or
    prejudiced. This is totally false. Look at Mr. Mathews statements
    about “Cults” and Catholics and his response to Glenn Beck.

    Mr. Beck, Mr. Mathews’ opinions are not based on bigotry and prejudice.

    They are based on naivete and incredible stupidity.

    Mr. Mathews still thinks it is a half century ago and JFK is running
    for president. He is unaware that there are MILLIONS of Catholic
    Southerners. So enough of the remarks about bigotry. They are
    completely wrong.

    The question, the Real Question, is about Mr. Mathews ignorance, stupidity and naivete.

    His every remark is alienating Millions of Southern Catholics and other
    voters who might otherwise vote Democratic. Mr. Mathews is actually the
    GREATEST ally that the Republicans could hope for and he proves 5

    Now, I don’t agree with Chris and Ed attacking Mitt because of his religion.  However, I do have a problem with that religion calling itself Christian.  It contradicts the main beliefs.  I would challenge Glenn to look into the religion that he has in common with Mitt.  Delve into its claims with the same fervor.  He doesn’t need to broadcast his findings.  This is just a personal challenge.   

    As for Chris and Ed, they show their bigotry with a great diligence. They are godless and mock anyone that isn’t.   

  • Monte Matheson

    Mr. Beck,
    My name is Monte Matheson.  Like you I am LDS.  Like you I’m a Republican.  I voted for Rick Santorum, because I liked what he had to say. Now you’re competing with me for the position of president of the “Mormons for Santorum” club.  We’ll have to meet with all three of us to vote on it.

    However, that’s not why I’m writing.  I can’t stand MSNBC, but I used to watch Matthews back during the impeachment days when it wasn’t just Manhatteners watching CNBC and MSNBC, and I saw his response to you on the above clip, and I do think you attacked him unfairly on being AntiMormon.  Doubtless that pucilanimous shouter Lawrence O’Donnel is, but Matthews has  never disparaged Mormonism itself.  In all the years I watched him, he always treated Senator Hatch, Bay Buchannen and most other LDS people with dignity and respect, and had kind things to say about the church and its people.  His response to your statements about Mormons and his statement of good LDS people he knew that led him to where he was was not just smoke and mirrors.  He has always had respect for our faith.  He’s said a lot of other things that scare the crap out of me and should concern all Americans equally, but none of that was specific to LDS people.

    You may have a point on the south.  He is a  Catholic, and as such he may harbor, it appears, some resentment towards the protestant south.  I once shared this prejudice against the south because my ancestors had to flee Georgia once they converted to Mormonism, in the late 19th century. I was not cured of this prejudice by someone calling me a bigot, though it may have been true.  I was cured of it when I was a 1LT in the Army Guard attending the Captains Career Course in FT Benning, GA and had the opportunity to get to know some good southern people in Columbus, GA and Auburn, AL.  There I learned that much of the south had changed with America, and my old prejudices were wiped away with a warm southern smile. 

    I mention that, because I think in this clip you adopted the lefts means of fingerpointing on bigotry, when it’s not lobbing names, but love that wins hearts.  I know my insults towards O’Donnel may be the antithesis of that, but I’m not perfect either.  I would say the Tuskeegee Airmen putting themselves at greater risk than any fighter escort group before them, on behalf of the bomber crews they accompanied and protected, probably did just as much to win people to the Civil Rights Cause as Rosa Parks’s refusal to move.   

    As a man who shares your faith and your values, I would ask you to apologize to Chris Matthews at the least on the Mormon comment, becuase it is not true.  Restate your case in defense of the decent southerners and ask him to treat them fairly as you will have treated hi by your retraction of the anti-Mormon bigot comment.  Of course I’m a nobody, and you don’t have to pay me any mind, but I hope your conscience will tell it to you in a way that is more becoming than my words.  God Speed.

    What most people fail to recognize is that many of the most bigoted, mindless, moronic dimwits out there are liberals. Why? Because no matter how stupid you are, no matter how baseless your claims, no matter how ludicrous your reasoning, no matter how heinous or outrageous your behavior, if you are a liberal, you will NEVER hear a word of criticism. There is literally no limit whatsoever in the world of the liberal.  It is literally considered a crime in the liberal world to criticize a Muslim, but openly referring to Catholicism and Mormonism as a cult is A-Okay.  If you are a liberal, it is literally impossible to be a bigot, a “hater”, a hypocrite.  When you fervently believe that the end justifies the means (literally the mantra of the liberals), there is no such thing as hypocrisy because whatever you do, up to and including murder and riots, is acceptable. They are so accustomed to this type of behavior, that when they DO finally step over the line (think Keith Olbermann accusing Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin on live television of having collaborated with an as yet, unknown, assailant who murdered 6 people and wounded 18, including Gabriel Gifford), and held accountable for their own actions and lies, they take on the air of having been wrongfully accused and, typically, they pick up a new job that pays more than their last job.  That is reality.  Ed Schultz calls women vile names on his show and he is a hero (at least in his own mind).  When Rush Limbaugh does something stupid, but infinitely less offensive, Ed Schultz completely loses his mind criticizing his much richer and much more wealthy nemesis for weeks, practically frothing at the mouth with indignation and hatred, never mind that Rush Limbaugh has never used the kind of language that Ed Schultz spews on a nearly daily basis.  Oh, no. What he does is NECESSARY because of the “danger” of the conservative ideology.  Chris Matthews is always the first in line to accuse conservative competitors of horrific crimes, yet there is absolutely nothing for which he will accept accountability.  Who needs accountability when you are a liberal?  Why bother? How many people were arrested for defecating in public at the Tea Party rallies? How many people were arrested for rape or murder at the Tea Party rallies?  How many Occupy protestors committed crimes? Yet, according to the liberals, it is exactly the opposite.  Here’s the really pathetic part…these morons believe that they have a RIGHT to express these sentiments against conservatives, yet will boldfacedly declare that conservatives do NOT.  I have literally taken the words of liberal bigots, and without informing them what I am going to do, have entered public debates in which I quote them verbatim, excepting the names.  Instead of word for word the way that they originally stated it, I substitute liberal names for those that they attacked in the first place. Try it sometime.  It is hilarious to publicly humiliate someone who has wrongly chosen to believe that they should have some special dispensation because of their beliefs and that they can say it however they wish without consequence.  They absolutely lose their minds in public, screaming “racism” or some other stupid accusation.  What is really hilarious is what happens when the audience hears you quote their original statement and you point out that THEY were the ones who said it, not you.  Every time…every SINGLE time, the stammering begins and finally, they can’t help themselves.  They all end up claiming that it is bigoted when a conservative says it, but completely okay when a liberal says it.  That’s usually when the booing begins.  Folks, there are no facts to support liberalism.  When their lies and hypocrisy are exposed to the light of day, they simply cannot defend themselves.  They can stammer and harrumph all they want, but they simply sound STUPID.  Want to see how offensive Chris Matthew’s words really are? Substitute ANY liberal god or ideal for those terms and watch the screaming, the venom, the hatred begin in earnest.  I no longer try to reason with these people because they will accept ANYTHING from someone on their side.  Conservatives do not afford their own heroes this luxury and they shouldn’t.  Too bad that not even the slightest modicum of restraint or decorum exists on the other side.  Absolutely ANY behavior on their side is okay because even lies or outrageous behaviors make them heroes to their side because they are supporting the cause.  Why do they take this road?  My contention is that it is based on laziness and avarice.  Being a liberal is simply WAY easier.

    So if anyone has anything negative to say about the LDS church (Mormons) we are bigots. Its amazing how some “Christians” are afraid to defend the Word of God because the Mormons are holding up a shield of political correctness. It is the LDS church and its founder that are the bigots beginning with their founder and his words against Christian churches.
    Joseph Smith claimed that he had seen both God the Father and Jesus Christ and asked these personages which church he should join. He claimed he was told to join none of them, “for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight” (Joseph Smith History 1:19).When asked “Will all be damned but Mormons?” Smith replied, “Yes, and a great portion of them unless they repent and work righteousness” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg. 119).

    If you are a true Christian you should not be either left or Right. Your vote should be for Jesus Christ. Gods Kingdom is the only answer for all of us. The Lords Prayer mentions that  Gods will

    Actually a true Christian should neither be left or right.  The UNITED STATES IS ANYTHING BUT UNITED.  The politics of this country and this world has divided and conquered.  If Romney was truly a follower of Christ he would not be running for President. Religion and Politics will never mix sucessfully. The only promises you can count on are from Jesus.

    I used to like Chris Matthews a decade ago. He has slipped so far beyond reality and each day he slips further.
