True, and Syn's state hasn't exactly done Romney any favors either LOL. There's only 1 Republican on my ticket that I'm hoping won't win.... Roy Moore. That guy is a little too out there for even my tastes LMAO.

If we really care about a presidential candidate's religion anymore,
Then we should probably care about the religion of who cooks our food, or teaches our math class, or who provides my annual medical examinations, because THOSE people will have a greater effect on our lives than the president.
Nope.... I don't want a president who believes in an afterlife with his finger on the nuclear launch button.
Please, as if it would ever come to that. You sound as paranoid as people who claim they'll move to Canada if things don't go their way. I think we stopped threatening with nuclear warfare back in Eisenhower's administration against Communist China. 50 years ago when we were still wagging our guns around. Talks of SALT and START has diminished such policies and reduced not only nuclear weapons, but all kinds of ballistics.
If there's anyone you should fear of because of nuclear weapons is fundamentalist theological nations like Iran.
The US has just as bad a track record for not only inciting violence, but for carrying out subversive and covert, government mandated operations in and against other soverign nations. There is also a long history of providing arms and financial support for non-militaries and combatants that, had they faced them, would have been deemed unlawful combatants.
So don't pretend that this is paranoia, or that it would 'never come to that'. The only thing differentiating the islamists and the mormons, or the fundamentalists from one another is the preferrential treatment and sympathy their host nations gives them.
There is an equally sick and twisted obsession with end times in both Christianity and Islam, and Mormonism is certainly not exempt. It needn't be 'the button', it can be as seemingly benign as a fundamentalist who thought he could walk in and walk out of Iraq and Afghanistan like they did for Kuwait decades earlier. Swaggering into a war that has seen well over $1 000 000 000 000 in financial cost, plus over 100 000 in human lives lost. The human toll is nearing the combined costs of Hiroshima/Nagasaki...but we won't ever know the total costs of both material and human losses.
So, to think that one is more insane than the other is merely a matter of perspective. To the unbiased observer, any religious zealot with so much control is a recipe for disaster. Whether they do it in the name of their religion, for thier religion, because of thier religion or for the outcome preferred or admired by thier religion....it's all a flawed process from jump.
It's just silly to think that "our" zealot is less crazy than "theirs"....especially when "ours" is the only country in the history of mankind to use a nuclear weapon on a civilian population.
