ROMNEY: Pro-Mormon ads have political aim

With a presidential election upon us this year, we’re going to be subjected to a slew of ads touting the admirable qualities of one candidate or another. Ahead of it all, we presently get to enjoy people telling us all about themselves and what great, normal people they are. And by the way, they’re Mormons.

These ads telling us what regular people Mormons are, without a doubt, paid for by the Mormon church in order to let us all know that presidential candidate Mitt Romney is just like you and me.

While I’ve got no beef with the message (although I’m an atheist), I’ve got to protest the fact that these blatantly political ads are paid for with tax-exempt church dollars. If anyone really thinks otherwise then they are just as delusional as those who think that someone who makes millions by producing nothing has something in common with them.
