Questions A Reporter Could Ask Mitt Romney About Mormonism

Recently on ABC News, Mitt Romney told Diane Sawyer that he would be glad to answer questions about his Mormon faith.  Here are some questions about Mormonism that Dianne (or other reporters) could ask him:

* Did your God make all the stars, all the planets, and everything that exists anywhere?

* What books do you believe to be equal to the Bible? Why?

* What are “celestial wives”?  How many do you have?

* Does God have wives?

* Does God have a physical body or is He a spirit?

* How does God bring forth the spirits of new human beings?  Does he create them or procreate them?

* Was Jesus Christ conceived by a physical act between God and Mary?

* Will a faithful male Mormon become the God of his own planet after his death?

* Was your Heavenly Father a man before He became God?

* Are all churches, except the Mormon church, wrong in what they believe about God?

* Have you taken secret oaths and/or engaged in secret activities in a Mormon Temple?


About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @

    Diane Sawyer will not be fair or balanced. She will have an agenda ready.

    Good thoughts Steve, if only people knew the truth of what he really believes they would be shocked!

    • Steve Simms says:

      True, david. Most people don’t know that they redefine words. When they use the word “Jesus,” it doesn’t mean the same thing to them as it does in the dictionary and in Christian theology.

    This quote from one of the LDS prophets is from the LDS church history page:
    “As man now is, God once was; as God is now man may be.”
    ( The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, ed. Clyde J. Williams [1984], 1.)

    I can honestly state that Mormonism extends a excellent set of guidelines concerning healthy active living and if I were to choose a method to raise my children healthy, I would certainly put them close or at the top of the list. And I can honetly attest to the fact that Mormon truths have changed over time of which I have been a part of and witnessed. I can honestly say in my research, I have found numerious inconsistencies concerning what their members state about a certain subject and what the leaders of the church state publicly. I was one of those who lived among mormons (and was forcibly a member) that wouldn’t let their children play, not even in the same neighborhood, with children who weren’t mormon. I have witnessed church leaders state publicly what they claim to be true concerning one of their beliefs, then hear members of their congregation state something they received from leaders of the church concerning the same exact subject, state something very different. Publicly the leaders will respond when found out, “members of our congregation must have misunderstood”, and then do absolutely nothing to correct the “misunderstanding”. An excellent example is the use of caffiene, primarily in coffee. This taboo in Mormon history extends into decades and even into today but yet they will announce publicly that caffiene wasn’t specifically identifed as off limits. I’m sorry to say this, “Give me a break already!” That “unwritten” law of theirs was crammed down our throats. Mormonism has many secrets and will protect them at all costs. To think they will admit that themselves is ridiculous. They are the first to jump into the spotlight when they have the opportunity to exploit how their members were so severely persecuted. But not one instance have they ever taken responsibility in instigating many of their claimed persecutions crying “victim!…victim!” Mormons were persecuters as well, one such instance is when Joseph Smith landed in jail after destroying a business who printed an article about Mormon poligamy Joseph himself didn’t agree with. Of course he was wrongly murdered, who isn’t? To think that Joseph Smith was murdered by an angry mob because of “one event” is absurd and false. Another was Joseph Smith and his abuse of women. And…
    September 24, 1890 – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officially renounces polygamy. They claim credit for initiating the change due to God’s commands when in fact it was the U.S. laws that finally caught up to them in Utah, forcing them to either abide by the law or be prosecuted. It wasn’t like they didn’t have several years advanced warning. You haven’t heard a word about that, or at least, I haven’t seen the “rest of the story” in any reporting. I’ve certainly heard the church leaders answers to many questions and only because of my research I watch them intentionally leave out key facts that would incriminate the church in a less than honorable light.
    The list goes on and on and it is indeed extensive. They claimed those who skin is black are direct decendants of Cain in the Old Testament and weren’t allowed to hold the priesthood due to that relationship, when in fact they have absolutely zero evidence to confirm this statement and then claimed during the intense uprising in bringing about change during the Civil Rights movement, God decided to let the black skinned people become members of the religion. They claim it was God who directed them. In both these instances, abolishing poligamy and allowing black skinned people to become members of the church, it wasn’t God that did decided “it is time”, it was the church leaders literally saving their church from further persecution brought about by their arragont stance that no human, nation or army had the right to confront them concerning their unlawful practices. After all, they were the authority of God on Earth.
    1890 – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officially renounces polygamy. They claim credit for initiating the change when in fact it was the U.S. laws that finally caught up to them, forcing them to either abide by the law or be prosecuted. It wasn’t like they didn’t have several years “respectful” advanced warning.. Discrimination among the members ran rampant.
    The conspiracies that are continually carried forward through their upper heirarchy are numerous. I’ll only mention one of the big ones, Joseph Smith’s declaration he could translate Egyptain Heiroglyphic writing. When what became known as the Rosetta Stone was found and Joseph’s translations were examined for the first time to confirm his translations, 100%, count it from 0 to 100, 100% of his translations were false and didn’t even closely resemble the actual documents he claimed to have correctly translated. Go from there, you’ll find the truth of this organization. What they don’t realize is even though Joseph Smith was arragont enough to think he could pull off the perfect crime against humanity, he failed. The sad thing is, all the top church leaders in authority commited to a conspiracy and continue to lie to everyone, and I wonder if they themselves truly think they have pulled of the perfect crime crime against humanity. The arrogance of the top leaders of this organization is beyond comprehension for most of us.
    It would be nice, it would be beneficial, if for once they would tell the entire truth, instead of intentionally leaving out “all” the facts…”Intentionally” leaving out all the facts. They misdirect millions of peoples lives. Do they truly think they can get away with this “forever”? I wonder…
    Honestly, if anyone reporting on Mormonism isn’t going to do their investigative reporting, all they are doing is giving Mormonism a chance to lie to the entire world, openly giving them a chance to propagate their lies into every household, which is “exactly” their agenda, every man, every household…
