What do the Mormon Utah Compact leaders have to say about Mitt Romney’s self-deportation ideas that affects Latinos?Friday, September 28th, 2012
It’s weird. You can almost hear the crickets in the air — but what do the Mormon Utah Compact leaders have to say about Mitt Romney’s self-deportation ideas that affects Latinos?
We have applauded The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS / Mormons) for their compassionate views towards the undocumented immigrants. In fact, LDS their top leadership has embraced the Utah Compact which is modeled after the Plymouth Compact.
So what happened with their own Mitt Romney?
Why haven’t any of the Utah Compact leaders spoken against Romney’s self deportation ideas?
Where are they?
Don’t the Mormons know that we know they are spreading the gospel in Latin countries, but their own member (Mitt) of the LDS Church is advocating the booting out of my people?
Why hasn’t the Mormon Church taken Mitt Romney’s temple card away the same way Catholics deny the Eucharist to “pro choice” politicians?
Now before you accuse me of being anti-Mormon, make no mistake …. we have been protesting the corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio at his own Catholic Church, too. In fact, we wrote a letter to Bishop Olmsted asking him to publicly denounce or deny Arpaio the Eucharist since mysterious Mexican-American deaths are occurring in the Maricopa County jails. You can read our entire letter to the Bishop here.
Speaking of Arpaio, Arizona voters like me will never forget how Mitt Romney made the corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio his Arizona chair when he was running against Senator John McCain in 2007.
It’s no wonder our Nation is so broken and barely holding on. Heck, we can’t even look to religious leaders anymore to be strong voices that would help the voiceless, the poor and so on. While politicians are supposed to be ethical, it used to be that religious leaders were supposed to have better moral standards. Somehow, we have grown into a society where religious leaders are now afraid to say what people are thinking due to political correctness.
I hope more Mormon leaders will continue to see that anti-immigrant self-deportation law(s) in a way resembles the Mormon Missouri extermination order. Both SB 1070 and the Missouri Extermination Order advocate mass exodus in order for people to flee persecution. We have witnessed mysterious deaths in the Maricopa Co. prisons, the chaining of pregnant women while they give birth, and people have been killed in our state since the Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB1070 into law — and I believe much of this has to do with how political leaders view those of Mexican descent.
I recently read a story regarding how Romney is holding on to his Mormon faith through political rise — and this is confusing to me considering how he will not support bipartisanship ideas on the treatment of fellow man via immigrants. I am not questioning Romney’s salvation, but I do question how he will not support the Mormon leaders in Salt Lake City, Utah, via the Utah Compact.
We will be watching how the Mormon leadership will finally publicly react to Mitt Romney’s self-deportation ideas.
While Mormon missionaries go to Mexico, I hope they remember that one of their own via Romney is supporting hurtful self-deportation of my people in the Nation that was built by immigrants to begin with.
