I am not in the tank for any candidate and as a Christian author and Bible teacher, I do not endorse candidates. However, while watching the March 3, 2016 speech by twice failed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney I thought for sure he was talking about the founder of his Mormon religion, Joseph Smith, or Mormon leader Brigham Young. Was he not? Fraud, con man, liar, imagination, racial bigotry, immoral, unstable were the descriptions I heard and I just was certain Mormon Mitt could have been talking about Mormon Founder Joseph Smith.
Joseph Smith was not a martyr. He was a thug and a shyster. According to numerous historical accounts he was a thief. Smith died like many other Old West gunslingers. A friend had smuggled a six-shooter to Smith in jail, and when a group later assembled to confront Smith for his crimes, the Mormon founder began shooting. Smith was killed in the gunfight he started.
Prior to his death, Joseph Smith founded the cult of Mormonism—the cult that believes God was a man of flesh and bone who evolved to become God and who now lives on a planet near the star of Kolob. There, this god engages in eternal sexual relations with his goddess wives, the offspring of which he sends as spirit babies to earth. Every Mormon man who lives a good Mormon life and has his marriage sealed in the Mormon temple is promised a similar eternal state. In the afterlife, he and his wife can become a god and a goddess, have their own planet, enjoy endless sex, and send spirit babies to another planet of their own. For Joseph Smith to teach that as the foundation of his religion requires some serious unstable thinking, ego and imagination.
So I was sure Mitt was talking about Joseph Smith in his speech, was he not?
