Mitt Romney’s Mormon Underwear

January 28, 2008

UPDATED (with rules for wearing the underwear)

Some have commented to me that I always seem so serious about the issues that I post about on my blog.  So I thought I would start the week off with something a bit lighter.  This picture was sent by a friend, and seems to fit with both the political theme of the blog, and the ‘need’ to lighten the mood here at times.  Tell me the next time you see Mitt on TV you will not crack a smile.

It was not until I saw the movie “Latter Days”, a gay themed movie a few years ago that I discovered Mormons wore special underwear.  No kidding, I was rather perplexed about it too. Even Mike Wallace from CBS’s “60 Minutes” seems amused by the underwear.

    I think I’m quite well-enough educated about the Mormons, and the hatred they spewed the past couple of months in California, so if those of us that you persecute want to make fun of your wierdo underwear, I think we’re more than entitled. And may God, and not Joseph Smith, bless you. Have a nice day living in your little twilight zone.

    DekeRivers,

    I hope someday you decide to educate yourself about the Mormons. Your lack of understanding isn’t shameful, but your mockery of things that are sacred to others certainly is, by any good person’s standard. In any event, as a Mormon, I’ve found nothing but good in my faith–principles and truths that lead me to better myself and grow closer to my family and to God. I’d invite you to learn from the source; our meetings are open to all. All the best to you,

    Andy

    LDS are no more a cult than Seventh Day Adventists, Jehova’s Witnesses, Baptists, Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Hindu’s or any other people who have been graced with metaphysically revealed knowledge.

    Just because “Mormons” have only had this knowledge for a little less then 200 years doesn’t make them any more of a cult than Branch Dravidians, Scientologists, or Falun Dafa.

    what’s wrong with the garments (or the underwear), by the way? don’t you wear any underclothes yourself? for sure you have a reason for wearing your undies or for choosing a particular piece of underwear. Why make an issue on the mormon garment?

    the garments are made of 100% cotton or 50/50 cotton/polyester. i say it is comfortable to wear the 100% cotton. i’ve been wearing my garments for the last 10 years and i see nothing wrong with it. I prepared myself to become worthy to wear the garments.

    you are entitled to your own thoughts. that is part of your freedom. do something good once in a while if you have the chance.

    Distinctive clerical clothing is often worn by many religious people and leaders, including (for example) a catholic priest, who in many cases will wear it not only while acting in a pastoral capacity but in public.

    Mormon’s (like catholic priests) make certain promises to God in their capacity. ‘Mormon underwear’ is worn underneath the clothing, as a symbol of these promises, much like the special clothing worn by a priests, only Mormon’s special clothing as a reminder of this, is worn underneath the clothing instead of outwardly.

    If you think that the Mormon church is a “Cult”.. Then i suggest you get your facts straight!
    Honestly, don’t speak about what you DO NOT KNOW!
    It’s not “underwear” as you call it. It’s garments. An extra layer of SACRED protection.
    I would STRONGLY suggest you take this post off!

    It was funny…and besides I do not think Mormons are so much a religion as they are a cult-like organization.
