    Not only do I have limited bandwidth, but I am deaf. Can you at least give a synopsis? BTW, from what denomination or Christian philosophy do you hail? Universalism, Bible Church, Reformed, Wesleyan, What?

    Does he not even know
    what his church teaches?
    Or as with most of them
    just trying to get votes
    while putting conscious aside?

    I come from a Traditional background

    Mormons follow a different Christ then Christians...



    The traditional Christ of whom they speak is not the Christ of whom I speak. For the Christ of whom I speak as been revealed in this the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. He together with His Father, appeared to the boy Joseph Smith in the year 1820, and when Joseph left the grove that day, he knew more of the matters of God than all the learned ministers of the gospel of the ages." (Church News, June 20, 1998, p70) Gordon B Hinckley

    We Look to Christ 2002 General Conference April

    LDS Apostle Bruce McConkie taught that Christians have "a mythical Christ" (Mormon Doctrine, p.269). That means we must decide which faith has the real Christ because somebody clearly has a mythical Christ. Do these faiths have the same Jesus? No, if you read the LDS Ensign. It says Christian Churches worship a different Jesus (May 1977, p.26).

    And I've been thinking of Mitt as a traitor to his party for a while now.

    Guy would never get my vote.

    It's like the 60s all over again. But this time, it's the looney right that's now purging any dissent from the ranks.

    Trump supporters accusing Mitt Romney of lying - you can't make this stuff up because nobody would believe it!

    When Trump does it, they aren't lies. They are "alternative facts."

    "Alternative facts" was a phrase used by U.S. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway during a Meet the Press interview on January 22, 2017, in which she defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's false statement about the attendance numbers of Donald Trump's inauguration as President of the United States. When pressed during the interview with Chuck Todd to explain why Spicer would "utter a provable falsehood", Conway stated that Spicer was giving "alternative facts". Todd responded, "Look, alternative facts are not facts. They're falsehoods."[1]

    Conway's use of the phrase "alternative facts" for demonstrable falsehoods was widely mocked on social media and sharply criticized by journalists and media organizations, including Dan Rather, Jill Abramson, and the Public Relations Society of America. The phrase was extensively described as Orwellian, particularly in reference to the term doublethink. Within four days of the interview, sales of George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four had increased by 9,500%, which The New York Times and others attributed to Conway's use of the phrase, making it the number-one bestseller on Amazon.com.[2]

    I would be able to take these conservatives seriously whenever they try to point out the lies of some politician they obviously don't like if they hadn't spent the last four years passionately supporting and defending Trump, who is notoriously known for his perpetual lying habit. Personally, I don't see any reason to listen to them and take them seriously whenever they judge other people for their sins.

    It has always been "He tells it like it is!" and "He means what he says!" until he says something that is so obviously misleading or it's obvious he is lying, then it's suddenly "that's not what he meant!"

    Trump and his supporters are "counterpunchers" - instead of responding to the criticisms from their opponents, they merely accuse them of the same thing and hope it sticks!

    In fact, Mitt is apparently the first senator to vote to remove a president of his own party. That will put him in the history books by itself. Kind of the anti-Trump, in more than one way.

    Donald Trump walks into a bar carrying an otter.

    The bartender says "Hey, you can't bring a weasel in here."

    Trump says, "It's an otter, dummy."

    The bartender says "I wasn't talking to you."

    I'm sorry, I watched the video and I can't see what lie Romney is supposedly caught in. He's disagreeing with somebody about what the official teaching of the LDS church means, but that's not a lie.
