Mitt Romney is said to be troubled by Mormonism’s polygamous past.

No mentions however about that whole black people being directly descended from Cain thing.

Brigham Young, the 2nd Prophet of the Mormon sect said: “You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable, sad, low in their habits, wild, and seemingly without the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind.

“Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.”

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, once governor of the bluest blue state ever, Massachusetts, has whole-heartedly gone after the conservative religious voter by holding up a squeaky clean image.

He claims his Mormon religious faith’s history of polygamy could trouble American voters but that he too is bothered by it.

The former Massachusetts governor, whose Reuters reports his great-grandfather having five wives and whose great-great-grandfather had a dozen, said in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday that the practice banned by the Mormon church in 1890 was “awful.”
