"Well gee, doesn't Christianity teach almost the same thing? You can live your life any way you want, do all sorts of rotten things your whole lifespan, but just as long as you repent at some point -- even if it's just two seconds before you croak -- and accept Christ and His sacrifice and ask God to forgive you, everything you've done is wiped out, all is well, and you get to go to Heaven... No? What did Christ tell the thief on the cross?" - Andrew

Romney's Mormon religion was off limits by Democrats as it should have been. But of course there are always people who will bring up the oddities, the "fringe" things that happen in someone's religion, especially by comedians and media types. One of the strangest things about Mormons is that they baptize the dead. It doesn't matter how long you've been dead - you can be baptized into their religion and be saved. So no, you don't even have to ask for forgiveness BEFORE you die to get to heaven - if you are a Mormon. I didn't like the hypocrisy of the movers and shakers of the Christian religious right who backed Romney when they think his religion is a cult. You didn't hear about it much because Democrats believe in separation of church and state, unlike Republicans. Fundamentalist Christians want their religion to be a controlling influence in government and in your homes, your life even into your vagina.
