Though this might be “What Attacks on Mormonism?, Part 1”, depending on how you look at it – from Warner Todd Huston over at Breitbart:
As the race for the White House heats up, Reuters suddenly realized that the massive Mormon Church has a lot of money in its bank accounts. The news service went on to needle the Church, saying if it were a business “wealthy adherents like Mitt Romney would count as its dominant revenue stream.”
Reuters took the if-it-were-a-business theme even farther in its opening paragraphs.
“It would also likely attract corporate gadflies protesting a lack of transparency. They would call for less spending on real estate and more on charitable causes to improve membership growth — the Mormons’ return on investment.”
Of course, a religion is not a “business” proposition. A religion does not operate like a company does, it has far different goals. But assessing a religion wasn’t Reuters’ goal here. Making Mormons out to be “rich” elitists that act suspiciously and are pushing a snobbish presidential candidate on the nation was Reuters’ goal…
This from the same MSM which essentially went all “Reverend Wright, who?” in 2008. I don’t recall any stories about how Wright’s organization was financed – and that leaves aside anything more than a glance at the fact that Obama attended a racist, anti-American church for 20 years.
One might want to think that there would be only one trip in to the gutter for our Democrats and their lapdog MSM in 2012 – forget it; they’ll troll in every gutter there is. They will attack Romney because he’s rich. They’ll attack him because he’s white. They’ll attack him because he’s Mormon. They’ll attack him as a war monger and they’ll attack him because he had college and missionary deferments during the Vietnam War. They will lie. They will launch whispering campaigns claiming all sorts of horrors about Romney’s past. They will attack his wife. They will attack his children. They will attack his friends. They will try to intimidate people in the right blogosphere who are favorable to Romney. This will be the dirtiest political campaign in human history and the MSM will be right there in the trenches with the DNC, doing what they can to help Obama.
So, just get ready for it – it will get nauseating but the payoff will be the crestfallen looks on MSM faces on November 6th.
