Christian Shooter a Mormon -- Will it Hurt Mitt?

By now, you've heard about the shooting at two Colorado Christian Churches this past Sunday.

One of my thought was that it was going to be one more "persecution" for Christians to be obsessed about.

Well, it turns out that the kid who did the shooting was baptized into the LDS Church last year.

Yep. The Christian Killer was a Mormon.

I'm sure the Huckabee camp is going to be making a fuss about it soon. Sure, they'll apologize after the damage is done.

But this is going to hurt Mitt even more....

If you read the end of the story:

Murray's experience with the LDS Church culminated with his baptism. Soon after, he stopped going to church; and just a little over a year later, Murray was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot to his head following a shootout with a security guard.

He was baptized but then didn't come back. That's not fair calling him a Mormon. Sounds like a lost soul.

How is that going to hurt Mitt?

I couldn't find your email, but in case you're interested:

I maintain a website which lists blogs and podcasts about the LDS Church and those published by its members.

It can be found at

I would like to include your site with your permission.

If you would like to have your blog included, I would appreciate it if you would submit your blog's information at

I do not share any submitted information. I only post the name of the blog, its URL, and tag it by category and, if you include the information, what country and stateor province the blog originates from.

Generally, I classify LDS Blogs as blogs that are generally about LDS themes, the Church, doctrine,and culture.

Mormon bloggers are what I call blogs that are published by latter-day saints but are not necessarily about LDS subjects.

More information and a blog badge can be found at

Please let me know if you have questions.

Unless he was excommunicated or had his name removed from the records, he was still a member of the Church, even if not practicing.

And, even if he wasn't a member of the Church, it wouldn't matter to the Republicans who are using Mitt's religion against him. You see, whenever one of us does something, they will use it to project that same sin on the rest of us.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to hear someone say "See...Mormons hate Christians. Why should we elect one to be President?
