Mitt Romney: God is a Very, Very Small Thing

The size of God, according to Mitt Romney: 0.7 inches“I will not take God off our coins!” — Mitt Romney, September 8 2012.

If God can fit on our coins, then He must be the size of the smallest coin. The diameter of a dime is 0.7 inches. Mitt Romney just said that God is 0.7 inches wide — or smaller!

Yes, this is absurd. If you introduce religion into presidential races, absurdities are inevitable.

5 comments to Mitt Romney: God is a Very, Very Small Thing

  • BUDDY

    This one elecyion that GOD should be right in the middle of. As one president once said read his lips.

  • American Made

    he is a BIG A** H***

    Romney was ‘microcampaigning’. Virginia (like the Southeast generally) has a high concentration of Christian fundamentalists, so in Virginia Romney tried to make this election about ‘God’ on our coins…a non-issue if ever there was one, but you play the hand you’re dealt, and Romney’s hand is notably short on aces.

    What pisses me off more than almost anything is nominal ‘Christians’ who ignore or even disparage Christ’s fundamental teachings. “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” Governance (and yes, Mitt, coinage) are Caesar’s.

    The quote on the dime is just another example of how people seem to ignore the separation of church and state. If the government chooses to say prayers at the beginning of the Senate and Congress the Supreme Court, you name it and there will be a prayer said, and it will always be a Christian prayer. Presidents will talk about how they are Christians and it seems only God fearing Christians are good people. It never ceases to amaze me that people came to this country for religious freedom and yet that is the first freedom we loose. It is odd to think that in the infamous Salem Witch trials all the people executed were all God fearing Christians. The one person who admitted she was a Witch was allowed to go free.
    If it wasn’t such a tragedy I would find it humorous. Truth be known Witches like myself do not judge Christians but they love to judge us.

  • Church State

    Whatever happened to the separation of Church and State? GOP Presidential hopeful Romney seems a person who lacks boundaries when it comes to proselytizing the teachings of his Latter Day Saints (LDS) faith. I was troubled by Romney’s speech (reciting passages from the Book of Mormon, and the King James Bible), to the victims of the Colorado Shooting. Is this what the American public is to expect from Romney in the future as the President of the United States and the leader of the country who will frequently address the public? Romney’s behavior during this situation reassures me he is not the man to lead this country. If he is one who cannot restrain himself from spewing the teachings of his faith, perhaps he is best suited to remain in a religious leadership position for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – The Mormons.
