I am from Metairie, Louisiana and come up here every year. I would like to see Townsend grow but I don't want it to loose it charm, beauty, peacefulness! I don't want to see it like Chattanooga; nothing wrong with it but it is too touristy. I come here to Townsend to get away from all that "rat race" and want to enjoy the tranquility, beauty, pleasant atmosphere that is there. That is my thoughts on the subject from an outsider who loves your city.

Sexism: Are Mormons The American Taliban? ...

Mitt Romney is a Mormon. No one is really focusing on this in any real way. No one is pointing out that his religious cult beliefs are racist, sexist and sheer lunacy. Well, Bill Maher is and maybe a few others, but the media and the left leave him alone. If the Democratic presidential candidate was Mormon, you can take it to the bank that at this point in the election, we would ALL have a vast and complete understanding of Mormonism. There would be no veil of mystery.

Mormons dont like the public to know what they do behind closed doors. The reason for this is obvious. They have some pretty far out beliefs that include magic underwear and the idea that when the men die, they get their own planet where they will have many wives.

As an activist for womens rights, its clear to me that Mormonism supports the War On Women. A Romney presidency would not advance equality for women at all. Some may argue that a presidents faith has nothing to do with how he will conduct himself in office. If this is true, why is Obama STILL under so much scrutiny about his faith? Those who are so racist and cant stand to see a black man holding the most powerful position in the world, argue that he is not a Christian, that he is a Muslim. Its extremely important that Obama is a Christian. Why is it NOT important that Romney belongs to what Christians dismiss as a cult? We all know why. Its racism.

An ex-Mormon woman describes why she left the church here and gives detailed reasons as to why. She specifically talks about how sexism and inequality are dominant factors in her decision to leave the church. The video includes profanity.

A document on religious studies, written by Jessica Longacker in 1995 titled The Role of Women in Mormonism is detailed and provides an inside view as to how women are perceived.
