    once a priest, always a priest. so this is probably a good thing, but possibly not depending on whether the US leader is going to take to the task of killing (order the killing of a terrorist/assassin). – bin laden or the next terrorist in charge. a bishop is not allowed to order the death of somone i don't believe. maybe a bishop would be perceived by the muslims or a terrorist group as a better leader and not continue with terrorist activities, but that is uncertain. the issue then becomes separation of church and state in the US constitution. this is a general debate issue of whether this is good or bad for America. or whether this is technically allowed... given that once a priest, always a priest.

    Mormonism is to Protestants what Protestants were to Catholicism 500 years ago. It's a legitimate belief.

    Why are Mormans being excriminated againnt by asking the question are Mormans Christians , as this question is not asked about other religions.?
    There are many different faiths and it is our right to choose which faith we want.let every one worship in the Church of their choice. All religions have different beliefs, if not there would only be one belief .one church.

    Mormans believe in the King James version of the Holy Bible, Mormans have other books concerning their belief, so does all other Churches have their other books that they have written and believe in. All churches have other books of some kind.

    Mormans believe in the scriptures, believe in God our Eternal father and and in his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost and believe in doing good to others, obey the Laws of the land, above all love God , family, neighbors, etc.

    Reporters don't ask other people of the many other churches if they are Christians, so why ask this about the Morman Church people? just doesnt seem fair, –

    Yes, we Mormans believe if we Honor and serve our Lord and Jesus Christ, Live good life, and do good to others etc, we call our selves as much of a Christian as other people of other faiths and churches.

    Yes, there are many Churches and beliefs, and it is nice to know we can choose , , treat every one as we want to be treated.

    Don't like him and I don't trust him......I think he is in the bible (Something about the false prophets) He still does not go into
    detail about how he would fix things. Maybe because it would be on the shoulders of middle class people.
