Senator Larry Craig Is NOT A Mormon

August 29, 2007 at 8:12 am | Posted in American politics, conservatives, corruption, Larry Craig, Republicans | 7 Comments

I’ve seen comments galore across the blogs that seem to confuse this, but let’s be clear. Senator Larry Craig of Idaho is NOT a Mormon. He is a Methodist. You can see it on his wikipedia citation. This is not to say that there aren’t gay closeted Republican Mormons out there, nor to dispel the rumor that Republican Mormons try to abuse their positions of power (plenty do). But just to be factual. That’s all.

  1. I think that people are confusing him with Tom Crapo.

  2. For this kind of information Wiki is no longer credible, as anyone can scrub it. The mormon church was founded by pedophiles and is full of perverts – and they are famous disavowers. Prove you are right.

  3. I find it so interesting that the Mormon thing comes up so often and it is always negative.
    After the recent quake in Peru, our church was the first U.S. organization to send help. A 747 cargo plane left Salt Lake with medical supplies, food, tents, blankets, etc., to help a Catholic country.
    I had 8 children and lost 3 between 1980 and 1994 and put the LDS Church to the test and am proud to say that I am still a strong member. You believe the way you want and allow us to do
    the same. We are 13 million strong and growing all over the world.

    You’re right, wikipedia can be scrubbed, also by those who might have a kind thing to say about Craig, who, as a Methodist might not actually want to be known as a Mormon.

    Now, I don’t know if you really meant to insult me, but I ain’t no pedophile, no pervert, nor a disavower. I’m not afraid of members of my church being bad people—there are plenty of them. And there are some foolish people, like Mitt Romney, who would rather pander to religious conservatives than be himself. Don’t generalize so casually about something you have no idea what you are talking about.

  5. I don’t think you could have found a better way to make yourself sound less properly educated, or like any more of a bigot than, you managed to do speaking your mind of your mormon generalizations. I would say you believe everything you read, but obviously you believe the things you want to, which doesn’t make them true. Never insult an organization full of as many good people as the LDS church again. By the way they are Latter Day Saints not Mormons- not sure if you picked that up while you were learning your other “facts”.

  6. sherlock,

    are you talking to me or to Playin Possum?

  7. […] Larry Craig’s Appointment, Jim Risch, is Also NOT Mormon In my previous post on Larry Craig, my main point was to show that he is not a Mormon, because so many were asking that question on […]
