    If this guy is telling the truth, and 1.4 million people will vote for Jesus rather than Obama or Romney, that could make a difference. (Probably not, since most of the evangelicals are probably in states that Obama can't win under any circumstance.) This kind of prejudice deserves more attention.

    Almost 1.4 Million Pledge For Jesus as Write-In Candidate in 2012, as Disgruntled Evangelicals Vent Their Anti-Mormon, Anti-Obama Ire | Alternet

    As of October 18, 2012, when I reported in my story Graham's Romney Endorsement Accidentally Spreads "Mormonism is a cult" Meme to Millions - about superstar evangelist Billy Graham's disastrous effort to woo Protestant evangelical voters to vote for Mormon Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, I was unaware that the meme might, by then, already have spread to over a million disgruntled evangelicals who had reportedly pledged to vent their anti-Mormon (and anti-Obama) ire at the ballot box this November 6th.

    ...

    "Stop!", cries out evangelist Bill Keller, founder of the Internet ministry liveprayer.com; "CHRISTIANS MUST TAKE A STAND AND SAY "NO" TO SATAN THIS NOVEMBER!!!", he declares, "Vote for Jesus!"

    Keller means it. His website Vote For Jesus 2012 claims to have received well over one million pledges from voters who say that they will, on November 6, 2012, cast their votes for the write-in candidacy of Jesus Christ for president of the United States.

    Citizens do not have the right to express their vote?

    I think the protest vote is as solid as a regular vote.

    Maybe everyone else realizes what you don't: That this guy is a crackpot and "Jesus" won't be receiving 1.4 thousand votes, to say nothing of 1.4 million.

    May not be a bad strategy, the extreme righties voting for a dead guy instead of the Republican Flip Flopper..

    Patters believes all Republicans are so daft that this would actually work.

    Amen. Simple fact is that all the anti-Mormon bigotry is coming from the left these days. The right is quietly going about their business supporting Romney, not engaging in the political of hate, bigotry and intolerance.

    The left hates Mormons, but loves Islam.
    When was the last time we had a Mormon terrorist attack out country?

    Just to beat them to the punch....
    The left will compare this (below) to 9/11/01.


    Hmmm........"some of whom dressed as Indians to conceal their identity".

    I didn't know Liz Warren was a Mormon too.

    I was leaning towards voting for Jill Stein ... I may write myself a vote instead.

    Why will a Liberal go nuts and call a person racist that Criticizes Muslims but they have no problem at all with "Morman Bashing"

    Your question is a bit ironic, considering I'm the one who started the thread. I'm condemning the Mormon bashing.

    No you're not, you started this thread for the express purpose of trying to make Evangelicals look bad, and it has blown up in your face.

    If you were truly interested in condemning Mormon bashing, you would turn your critical eye to your own party, but condemnign Mormon bashing isn't even remotely your objective here.

    Don't worry Patters, you're not fooling anyone.
