Mitt Romney's Views on "Child of Cain..." President Barack Obama
Armand L. Mauss, a sociologist from Pullman, Wash., who is president of the Mormon History Association, said in an interview that he has talked with dozens of black Mormons who believe that some Mormon leaders and laity still view blacks as inferior.
Mauss said that some of the teachings did not originate with Mormons but with the Protestant groups from which Mormons converted. "Every major Protestant denomination in history has taught that blacks are descendants of Cain and Ham," he said."
Which brings me to the point why the Talibangelicals all hate Barack Obama...it seems that the Talibangelicals and Mormons don't get along in ideology, except for this one single issue of not being fond of those who are not "White and Delightsome".
