Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 4/6: Economics

October 28, 2012


Post by Randy Astle – We’re in the home stretch! November 6 will be a relief, I think, to everybody. But before things end I’d like to post three more times, which will hopefully be interesting to any LDS voters who somehow aren’t decided yet. (Share! Share! Share!) I was working on this post when […]

The Rich Take the Truth to Be Hard

October 18, 2012


Post by Joseph M – President Obama finally did it: he ended Tuesday evening’s debate by calling out Governor Romney (to his face!) over the 47% comment.  Romney set himself up for it; he answered the last question by declaring that he cares about 100% of America.  This proved a temptation too great to for […]

Dr. Gregory Prince: Mitt Romney Is Not the Face of Mormonism

September 20, 2012


Post by Rob T. Wednesday, in the Huffington Post, LDS historian and author Dr. Gregory Prince wrote a piece that, in some ways, I’ve been waiting to appear since Governor Romney said we should “double Guantanamo” back in May of 2007. The newly revealed remarks dismissing 47% of the country (including many Mormons), prompted Dr. […]

That “47%” includes lots of Mormons

September 18, 2012


Post by Rob T. One of my lengthiest discussions about Mormonism happened with a high school friend who had just finished his first year at a top-25 dental school. It started with his question: “Why do so many of you become dentists? Half of my class is Mormon: they’re all from Utah, they’re all married, […]

Free Agency

September 12, 2012


Post by Eric R – In recent weeks I have been part of several discussions with conservative Mormons about how the proper role of government should intersect with Christ’s commandment to take care of one another. A common point that keeps coming up is “free agency”. More precisely, my friends object to the federal government […]

Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 1/6: The Long View

September 9, 2012


Post by Randy Astle – PART ONE: THE LONG VIEW I casually started watching Mitt Romney’s career over a decade before I ever heard of anyone named Barack Obama. My oldest brother was his son Tagg’s roommate at BYU, then a trip to Boston to work on his ‘94 Senate campaign connected him with his […]

A Mormon for Obama…and Why

August 15, 2012


This guest post by “Anonymous Mormon” was originally posted on the blog, Zvirzdins at Large. It begins with this heading by Jamie Zvirzdin: As this year’s political race between Obama and Romney gains traction in the media, on social networks, in churches, and elsewhere, there are Mormons who, while having nothing against Romney personally or […]

When a Choice is Placed Before You…

August 6, 2012


Post by Joseph M. – Seeing that we at Mormons for Obama are not without sin, I don’t want to be the first to cast a stone at another; (so can somebody else please do it for me, and then I will surreptitiously cast the second stone?)  And then there’s that thing about a glass house; (is that even biblical?)  […]

The Book of Mormon Takes a Stand – for Obama

July 26, 2012


Guest Post by Steve Warren – We all know Mitt Romney is the Mormon in this year’s presidential race.  Therefore, we ought to be safe in assuming that Book of Mormon teachings more closely align with his views than those of President Obama. Alas, if we made that assumption, we’d be wrong. Let’s examine what […]

A Little Less Fear, A Little More Faith

July 23, 2012


Post by Hannah Wheelwright – Brothers and sisters, there is nothing more dangerous than fear. We learn about that in Sunday school all the time. I want to talk with you a little bit about the fear of being open about political opinions. I am not suggesting that anyone is wrong or ignorant for being […]
