Pretty much from the start of this blog, the most common searches that hit me are asking whether the Republican candidates for President, especially Gary Johnson, are Mormons. Even though I have personally seen former Governor Gary Johnson in a Mormon Church at an Eagle Scout Dinner, he is not Mormon. Just to set the record straight, here is the definitive list:
Gary Johnson . . . Not Mormon (possibly a follower of the Peyote religion.)
Rick Santorum . . . Not Mormon (he's Catholic, people - and not of the "liberation theology" or "social gospel" wing.)
Rick Perry . . . Not Mormon (in fact, we're waiting for his Southern Christian to come out anti-Romney.)
Newt Gingrich . . . Not Mormon (Reformed Amphibian.)
Herman Cain . . . Not Mormon (Chilean Baptist.)
Michelle Bachmann . . . Not Mormon (that should be obvious. Although she does sound a lot like Gayle Ruzicka and she's certainly got the "crazy" of an Enid Greene.)
Ron Paul . . . Not Mormon (Randian Galtist - if he were Mormon, that would make him a Skousenite.)
Mitt Romney . . . Mormon
Jon Huntsman . . . Mormon
President Obama . . . Not Mormon (not Muslim either. Get a clue, people!)
And none of the also-rans or no-shows are Mormon, i.e., Huckabee, Trump, Pawlenty, Palin, Christie, Barbour. Did I miss anybody? I'll let you know if I see any of them at church.
My Mormon History blogger friend at Keepapitchinin has made an interesting historical connection with that one guy who's not a Muslim. Check it out: http://www.keepapitchinin.org/2009/05/06/a-mormon-in-the-family-tree/comment-page-1/#comment-103038
