Religião e racismo

Ron Paul foi infantil e respondeu ao lado.
O que está em causa não é a fé de Romney, mas a sua pertença a uma organização que foi racista até 1978.

O racismo desta organização está presente no livro de mórmon, traduzido das placas de ouro que Joseph Smith recebeu dos estafetas alados que o divino emprega para estas coisas, e em citações do segundo presidente do conselho dos doze (autoridade na igreja), Brigham Young. Um senhor que decide aprofundar os textos divinos:

"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.


You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable and low in their habits, wild, and seemingly deprived of nearly all the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind....Cain slew his brother. Cain might have been killed, and that would have put a termination to that line of human beings. This was not to be, and the Lord put a mark upon him, which is the flat nose and black skin.


If the Government of the United States, in Congress assembled, had the right to pass an anti-polygamy bill, they had also the right to pass a law that slaves should not be abused as they have been; they had also a right to make a law that negroes should be used like human beings, and not worse than dumb brutes. For their abuse of that race, the whites will be cursed, unless they repent"
