I believe Mitt Romney is a good man and I do not believe for a second Mr. Romney has a racist bone in his body. He is not a racist in any definition of the word.
But Romney’s “Racist Problem” is the big secret in this campaign, and has to be addressed, because it WILL be brought up by the “Race-Card in Chief” Obama.
Again, the purpose of this post is not to be anti-Mormon, the purpose is to be real. If you do not know about the Mormon history now, you WILL before election day, Obama’s Billion dollar campaign will see to that. So it is best to confront what we will have to contend with if Romney is the GOP nominee.
First we need to realize Mitt Romney was a leader, not just a member, of the Mormon Church. He was a missionary in 1968, a Bishop of the Mormon Church, and a Stake President (presided over approximately 12 Mormon wards/churches.
And before 1978, the Mormon church was not only racist, it was INCREDIBLY racist against blacks.
Before 1978 the Mormon belief on the origin of “colored” people was they were the result of a curse by God. Mormons teach that when the “council of the Gods” were planning how to redeem mankind, Jesus desired to save man by giving them free choice, however Lucifer objected and wanted to force men to serve God. This created a three way split of the spirits. The Gods rejected Lucifer’s plan, which resulted in a war between the good spirit children (a third), and the spirit children that sided with Lucifer (another third) , and there was a group of spirits that were less valiant and remained neutral in this war (final third). These God (the head God) was very displeased with and turned their skin black.
Quotes of past Mormon leaders show their beliefs quite clearly.

JOSEPH SMITH (1831 – 1844) Discoverer of the Golden plates
First Prophet and President and Founder of the Mormon Church:
“Had I anything to do with the negro , I would confine them by strict law to their own species and put them on a national equalization.”
“You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable, sad, low in their habits, wild, and seemingly without the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind.“Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.”
“The negroes are not equal with other races when the receipt of certain spiritual blessings are concerned…”

That’s all well and good, but remember, Mitt was a missionary in France from July, 1966 to December, 1968. So for 2 ½ years Mitt Romney BELIEVED and TAUGHT these beliefs to the French people that didn’t slam their door in Mitt’s face.
I believe the Obama team is SALIVATING to bring this up. This is explosive on it’s own merits, but add the fact that Obama is black, and this will definitely be a huge part of the Obama Re-Destruction Campaign.
If Romney is the GOP Nominee, hang on for a wild, racist ride!
