A disturbing event in South Carolina came to light recently. Christmas cards purported to be from Mitt Romney were sent to a number of people around the state. They state that they were “Paid For By The Boston Massachusetts Temple,” which is not remotely true. They also highlight a number of “differences” between LDS doctrine and that of Protestant Christianity. The cards are simply classic Anti-Mormon tactics.
The real problem with the cards is that they suggest that Mitt Romney and the LDS endorsed them. First off, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not endorse any candidates and very rarely becomes involved in politics (and then only to make a statement against same-sex marriage, for example).
Whoever produced these postcards should be prosecuted – not for the Anti-Mormon statements but for the pretense of acting on Romney’s behalf. Should the person or persons be jailed? No, but they should at least receive fines or some other fitting punishment. We don’t need any underhanded antics or other illegal, unethical, or immoral actions by individuals trying to falsely attack the beliefs of a candidate.
