Romney’s Bizarre Mormon Beliefs Would Prove Dangerous and Divisive for American Society

Mitt Romney is steamrolling his way to the Republican nomination – thanks in part to the culture and connections of his Mormon faith.  Important questions have been raised about his financial assets and history as a corporate raider.  These issues alone render him unfit to serve as president.  However, his indoctrination into and current leadership within the Mormon Church should be of even greater concern.  This cult-like organization is a pyramid scheme tied to international power and wealth networks.   Romney is actually a Bishop in the Church of Latter Day Saints (i.e., the Mormons.)  If you look closely you swill see how he exhibits the arrogance and self-righteousness you would expect from a mid-level cult leader.  His Mormon upbringing ensures he will always look down on the rest of humanity.  The scary part is how far off base Mormonism is when it comes to truth, equality, and the American way.

One festering part of Romney’s Mormon problem is that those most opposed to electing a Mormon president are also the foundation of the Republican party – namely uneducated and conservative Evangelical Christians.   This is really the battle of two powerful religious institutions – neither of which deserve as much recognition and respect as they receive in American politics.  In this article, you will learn why allowing Romney to become president will give his cult much more credibility than it deserves.  Read about how Romney dodged the draft during the Viet Nam War doing “missionary work” in luxury and safety.  In addition, Mormon preaching and teaching cause social problems to persist, particularly inequality, sexism, environmental damage, and war.  You will learn about all these important issues, plus more.  The media and his opponents need to get over their timidity about discussing religion and start going after this madman with some facts.  We must never have a Mormon in the White House (nor a Moonie or a Scientologist for that matter.)

Dobie and Maynard were Key Role Models for Sixties Counterculture

Dobie Gillis (Dwayne Hickman) was an average teen living in America between 1959 and 1963.  This was right before so much started to change in 1964.  Like other red-blooded American teenage boys of his time, Dobie thought about money, cars and girls.   He wished he had more of all three which led to funny schemes that never seemed to work right.  Dobie’s best friend was Maynard G. Krebs (Bob Denver), a beatnik who shuttered at the word “work.”   They both questioned the authority of adults – particularly parents and teachers.  They were also quite likeable and never meant to cause any real harm.

Like millions of others, I watched it every week between the ages of 8 to 12.  In fact, my earliest role model was Maynard – played so well by the late Bob Denver who next starred on Gilligan’s Island.   Their views on life shaped the attitudes and behaviors of many kids who grew to be hippies a few years later.  This article includes just about everything there is to know about this wonderful comedy series.  Included are show summaries and tributes – along with insights directly from Dobie (Dwayne) and Maynard (Bob).   I have also located and crafted some cool pix for your enjoyment.  CLICK to “Get Hip” to the Legacy and Lessons of Dobie and Maynard!
