What Is Mormonism? South Park to the Rescue!

A number of the primary presidential candidates, especially republicans, are running their election candidacies, to varying degrees, on religious tickets aimed to secure the religious conservative constituency of the country. Yes, appeal to the lowest common denominator is always sure to get you popularity, almost by definition... Some have even gone so far as to deny their belief in evolution, only the greatest scientific theory that connects all of the inanimate world and the world of life into one comprehensive model that makes scientific, historical and philosophical sense of all biological disciplines.

One of the most controversial candidates, for his religious beliefs, is Mitt Romney, a mormon. Last week he was audacious enough to say, in one swift stroke (that I hope fooled no one), that his religious beliefs would and would NOT influence how he would run the country. If you think that violates the logical law of non-contradiction (the idea that one cannot say of something that "it is" and that "it is not" in the same respect and at the same time), you'd be right. In other words, Romney was basically calling his audience stupid, and hoping they wouldn't notice the gigantic logical fallacy.

Well, after you see the following South Park video explaining mormonism (in fairly accurate detail, I might add), you might understand why Romney thinks it's okay to not make a whole lot of sense...











The worst part is that I don't even dislike Romney. He strikes me as a decent politician and capable leader, even if I disagree with some of his views, but to see him sell his soul for votes tells you what a pushover and crack whore he can be...

Of course, the Bible doesn't do much better than the book of Mormon, given the huge inconsistencies between the four canonical gospels, for instance, like the fact that only one gospel talks about the ascension of Jesus into heaven (kind of a major point to omit, isn't it?) but that's a topic left for another occasion...
