Emails were flying! Mormon Emails. Specifically about John McCain and his VP Pick, Sarah Palin.
Although nothing has been covered about this in the Press as yet, many Rank and File Members of the Church of Latter Day Saints are starting to wonder about Sarah Palin's Church's Extreme Views on their Faith.
Some Mormons are Pretty Damn mad. I would be too if I heard my Church lumped in with "Satanism, Scientology and Witchcraft. Yes Really. Check out this WEBSITE. Incredible.
One email being passed around by LDS screamed "The Assembly of God, Sarah Palin's Church is ABSOLUTELY an extremist organization, and clearly against us... We need to WAKE UP AND SMELL THE BACON!"
Apparently there is a whole cottage Industry within the AoG Church focusing on attacking the Mormons(from another email):
"...and this comment from pastor Craig Carter - Mesa First Assembly of God, Mesa, AZ recommending a speaker from the Mormon Research Ministry whose tag line is "Challenging the claims of Mormonism since 1979" (their site is mrm.org)..."
Of course McCain was one of the GOP canididates involved in the now famous Anti-Mormon "Whisper Campaign" last fall [READ THIS], and his refusal to pick Obvious Choice as VP Mitt Romney confused Master Pundits and Political Novices alike. And Zeke.
Instead of the "perfect hole filler(Business and Executive experience)" that is Romney, McCain picked the Opposite. A person with little to offer the ticket, except to fire up the Southern Evangelical Base(Who hate Mormons).
Even though the Press isn't covering it, it appears that the Northern Nevada Mormon Community has caught on to the Anti Mormon flavor of the McCain Palin Campaign. If you were wondering why so many LDS weren't at Palin's Rally in Carson City on Saturday, now you know. There has been serious blowback to the Palin pick in this large Mormon State.
