If Mitt Romney were a Muslim he would not be participating in the Republican presidential debates. He would know he couldn't do so as Americans would not give him a single nod.
If Mitt Romney were to tell what he needs to tell the American people about his Mormon religion he would know that Americans would not give him any more of a nod than if he were a Muslim.
So he has chosen to fly under the radar. That is an old trick used by politicians and racketeers for millenniums.
Surreptitiously supporting Mitt in his quest for the most powerful political position on mother earth is the secret coordinating agency of the Mormon Church known as the Council of the Fifty. That council was created in June 1844 by Mormon founder Joseph Smith, JR to assist him in his quest for the U.S. presidency as now sought by Romney. At the time of it's creation, the council crowned Smith "King' of the earth. The prime mission given the council was/is to mount the Mormon coup d' "e tat establishing the Mormon earth political kingdom.
Unfortunately for Smith his quest caused his own death when a gun battle ensued in the Carthage, Illinois jail. It had been a little over a month since Smith was crowned king and had declared his presidential candidacy in Illinois while still a fugitive from justice in Missouri on a charge of sedition and on charges of destroying a printing press in Nauvoo.
Fair Use Doctrine
The question remains can a martyr be a martyr when he has just mortally wounded (killed) two men?
So much for saving their guy, the Council of the Fifty made up that deficiency by organizing the two year later Mormon exodus from Nauvoo but giving praise to Brigham Young as the Great colonizer of the Utah Territory.
Once in Utah, the church under Young had the freedom for a short time to allow Young, the second crowned "king" of the earth, to run the enterprise as a kingdom. Oddly the Mormons who had traveled west with Young and those who followed for the most part had been brainwashed to accept theocracy as the way of life in the territory. After all that was what god had deemed to be the true method of controlling subjects. Later the people of Utah were only freed from that bondage by the president. Today the church leaders and maybe 30 percent of its adherents are still waiting for the day when they can again control and be politically controlled by a Mormon "king".
People who do not know or have no interest in history are doomed to repeat the mistakes of preceding generations.
If Mitt should, be elected president, you can be sure that the semi-secret Mormon Council of the Fifty will become the organizing entity that will assist him in pulling off the coup d' e' tat of making the World the "Kingdom of our God" with the current Mormon Church President already crowned by the Council of the Fifty as the King of the "Kingdom of God on earth". A king to whom Romney has taken solemn oaths in a Mormon Temple to be subservient to. In fact he may be crowned king himself by fiat of the top 15 leaders of the church. Otherwise he will be an obedient servant of the Mormon king [Thomas S. Monson].
During such a presidency, we can be sure that an attempt will be made to bring into play all of the predictions of Armageddon including nuclear war to fulfill the maddened dream of Smith and his successors not to mention biblical prophecy.
MORMON DOCTRINE DECEPTION
The Council of the Fifty determined they would attempt to suppress the real history of the church and the weird church doctrines in an effort to clean out the publications of church doctrine which might prove to be a barrier to Mitt's election. Or for that matter Jon Huntsman's election or any Mormon's future barrier.
Quietly and sneakily, as is the Modus operandi of Mormonism, the Council of the Fifty in early 2010 removed from further publication and sales a book which exposed the true gospel teachings of the church and it's never ending goal of successfully pulling off its coup d'e' tat of becoming the political kingdom of god on earth.
