Under no circumstances will I ever stand before my Maker and explain that because he was the lesser of two evils, I supported a baby-killing cultist who directly or through his organization proclaimed that:
There are more gods than the one God revealed in the Bible.
God is a glorified, perfected human being with a body of flesh and bone.
God is polygamously married to dozens (at least) of wives, and spends eternity as a type of Celestial Stud engaged in endless copulation producing countless spirit babies.
Jesus is the spirit brother of Lucifer.
Jesus is the literal Son of God who was conceived through direct sexual intercourse between the Virgin Mary and God the Father -- or in other words, that God committed incest with his daughter Mary.
A person is saved into heaven by virtue of their good works.
A person must accept Joseph Smith in order to receive salvation.
A person must pass in judgment before Joseph Smith before being admitted into Heaven.
A person must believe in Prophet Lorenzo Snow's famous couplet: As man now is, God once was ... As God now is, Man may become.
Non-whites are loathsome and cursed because of something they did or did not do in the dawn of pre-existence whereas people of European descent in general, and Mormons in particular, are white and delightsome.
A person must aspire to be sealed in a Masonic-based temple ceremony to his/her spouse for time and all eternity so that they may someday become gods and goddesses ruling over our own planet.
Wives will only be resurrected if their husbands call forth their Temple Name from beyond the veil.
Christianity ceased to exist after the death of the twelve apostles, to the point where all Christian Churches (especially the Baptists, Catholics, Methodists and Presbyterians) are an abomination to the Lord.
The Mormon Church is Christian.
Furthermore, I can't believe that any true Christian anywhere would ever contemplate supporting any candidate for any public office that espouses such horrible heretical and blasphemous doctrines -- be they Muslim, Mormon, or whatever.
In my case, if asked to uphold one cultist or the other, I will always support neither, no matter what the cost or penalty.
