An open letter to Willard (aka "Mitt") Romney -- GO FUCK YOURSELF

"Homo homini aut deus aut lupus"

"Man is to man either a god or a wolf."
Desiderius Erasmus

But oh, when man decides he is doing God's work, the justification for viciousness and carnage really picks up.

You stand there all smarmy and smiling, confident that you and the other Elders are actually saints granted that status directly from Jesus (and that's fine -- believe what you will -- this is America, after all) but then you go on to make it clear that anyone whose beliefs are "secular" have no right to their own beliefs, and are practitioners of a false religion and are dead wrong (and as night follows day, in every religion that has ever had that point of view, that leads to a decision that it should be eradicated --- Purge, Inquisition, Pogrom, etc).

To use a secular phrase: "Eat shit and die."

You mentioned all sorts of Christians on whom you smiled down, suggesting to them that you actually respect them, but of course the words of Joseph Smith betray you, and he said it clearly, about his vision when he asked Jesus which of the Christian sects were the best for him to join:

"I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: 'they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.'"

Well, most people of one religion or another think theirs is superior to the others, else why would they be members? That goes with the fantasy. But most -- these days -- don't come right out and say they've decided whose beliefs are valid and whose aren't.

Who the fuck do you think you are?

The slimy shape-shifter who was an arch-conservative when you ran unsuccessfully for office back in Salt Lake? The smiling liberal you presented yourself as to run for governor in Massachusetts? The "destroy all sinners" conservative you now say you are?

Let's go back to your defeat in Salt lake City because it makes an important point -- the loathing of you by many many many Americans has very little to do with your religion -- only people who are as narrow-minded and ignorant as you are have a problem with Mormons as such -- your fellow Mormons dumped you because they could see you're just a slimy untrustworthy hypocritical ambitious power-hungry asshole who will do and say ANYTHING to get his hands on our lives.

I have known quite a few Mormons and, while I don't necessarily think any of them have what it takes to be President, I would vote for some of them as Mayor or even Congressperson or Senator.


You're Eddie Haskell from Leave It To Beaver greasing up Mrs. Cleaver and pissing on everyone else.

Talk about Kiss Up and Kick Down.

I don't care about your religion but I certainly don't want anyone leading this country based on his FAITH, not you, not that smiling preacher who seems to be playing the Andy Griffith character in the remake of Face in the Crowd, in which Patricia Neal watches the character's homey country facade gradual;ys slip away to reveal a monster underneath.

Former Governor Huckabee has already been caught in his lies and finger-pointing about who did what in the parole of the rapist/murderer Wayne Dumond.

But back to you, Mitt --

What we need is a president who will "be informed" by the Constitution of the United States.

What we do not need is a president who manages to forget to mention Jews, Muslims, Jainists, Taoists, Buddhists, Hindi, Agnostics, Atheists, Unitarians, Gnostics, Wiccans, Zoroastrians, Bahai,* and all those unlabeled people who are not members of any particular religion and who are neither Atheist nor Agnostic but who have come to the conclusion that organized religion is silly, repressive, and nasty and actually keeps individuals from achieving their spiritual fullness, whether it involves a god or not. (Oh, yeah, you did slip that "Judaeo-Christian tradition" cliche in there. But to me, as someone raised more or less Jewish, the Judaeo-Christian tradition, when it involves people who declare that Jesus Christ is their personal savior, means murder and blood libel.

Oh, you also seem to give short shrift to Deists, like our founding fathers, the sort of people YOU would consider Secularists and thereby WRONG.

And is that the same as Humanists to you?

You also exclude the various religions of Native Americans, too.

Why don't you tell us all about the 1857 Mountain Meadows Massacre, not so very long ago, during which the Church Elders pretty much demonstrated their attitude toward other Christians.

The point is -- we don't give a flying fuck about your religion. It's YOU we despise.

And when you start talking about how church and state shouldn't be COMPLETELY separated, then you're not an American at all.

Thomas Jefferson had written on his tombstone the two things of which he was most proud -- that he wrote the Declaration of Independence AND the Virginia law separating church from state. But then he was a nasty Deist and therefore someone about whom YOU don't give a flying fuck.

You pretty much ended your candidacy with that smarmy, supercilious, self-serving, arrogant speech.

Or at least, we can only hope.
