GOP rivals have different takes on Mormon faith – The Boston Globe

by Charles Cherry

Romney is highly active and orthodox – he was a top local lay leader in Massachusetts for years, and he has embraced his church unequivocally: “I believe in my Mormon faith and endeavor to live by it,’’ he said in a major speech in 2007.

In other words, he believes Adam is his god (who is also named Elohim and who himself was once a man). This god lives on a planet near a star named Kolob and has two sons, Lucifer and Jesus. If Mitt lives a worthy Mormon life, he too will one day became a god just like Elohim, and will get to have eternal sex with his many goddess wives and produce billions of spiritual offspring.

Of course, as a good Mormon, he believes a lot of other nonsense as well.

And he wants to be president of the United States of America.

I don’t think I’ll be voting for him.
