Tancredo Condemns “Bigoted” Group in Iowa

(Des Moines, IA) – Presidential candidate Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) today released a statement in response to the remarks released by a group calling themselves “”.

“The attached "questionnaire" purports to be intended to help voters in Iowa determine the Christian qualifications of those seeking the Republican nomination for President of the United States,” Tancredo said. “I believe it is anything but Christian in its tone and intent and I call on every candidate to repudiate it.”

Among the numerous prejudiced responses, refers to “Mormonism as a Christ-dishonoring cult” while bashing Governor Mitt Romney and calling for him to renounce his religion.

Tancredo concluded, “God and God alone will judge the hearts of us all.”


Transcript of email released by

Dear Presidential Candidates, Churches and the Media,

Firstly, we would like to thank and congratulate the Presidential candidates who replied to our 30 questions, both in full and in part. None of you had all 30 answers with which we agreed completely, but everyone had at least some answers with which we agreed. We were actually quite impressed with some of the answers as they demonstrated courage and/or serious introspection amidst what must be an extremely demanding campaign schedule.

Also of intrigue were the varying styles of communication. The responses from some campaigns were quick and streamlined, while those from others indicated bottlenecks and/or dissent within the campaign.

There were also a few campaigns that never replied to our invitation. Notable among those leading in the polls was Governor Mitt Romney, who instead announced a major speech about his faith to be given on Thursday, and told WBZ-AM, "I can tell you I'm not going to be talking so much about my faith as I am talking about the religious heritage of our country and the role in which it played in the founding of the nation and the role which I think religion should generally play today in our society."

Given that (1) Governor Romney has missed our response deadline despite reminders; (2) Governor Romney is setting up what could be the defining moment of his candidacy as a history lesson; (3) the media appears ready to let him get away with it instead of making him address the core problem with his Mormonism; (4) our objective is to help America elect a President who is right with God; and (5) we still wish to hear Governor Romney's words on Thursday before conclusively rating his candidacy, we will wait until his speech on Thursday to post online the candidates' responses to our questions and our recommendations.

What really is the problem with Governor Romney's Mormonism?

At the core of Mormonism is the belief that Jesus and Satan used to be human blood brothers in a distant planet - Jesus behaved well according to Mormonism and became a deity in our planet system, while Satan behaved badly and became the devil. Moreover, Mormonism teaches that good conduct as Mormons in this life will enable Mormons to become God in a different planet system someday, just like Jesus a generation ago.

A religion which teaches that Jesus - our perfectly pure and holy God and Lord - is the blood brother of Satan - the perfectly evil and sinful creature - is an abomination, and the idea that a creature can become the Creator is precisely what turned Lucifer, the angel of light, into Satan, and is therefore Satanic by nature.

Christians are not interested in a history lesson from Governor Romney on Thursday. Neither are we interested in a sound bite commercial on Mormonism. What we want to hear and what will put our votes into play in his favor is a sincere, unequivocal and genuine repudiation of Mormonism. Governor Romney needs to identify Mormonism as a Christ-dishonoring cult, publicly sever all ties to it, and ask God and Christians for help. The chance of that happening, of course, is extremely small, but the media still needs to confront him with the following three questions on national television during the Q&A session after his speech on Thursday:

1. "Do you believe that Jesus and Satan once were human brothers as Mormonism teaches?"
2. "Do you hope to become God someday as Mormonism teaches that you can become?"
3. "If not, will you at this time renounce Mormonism and sever all ties to it?"

The extension to Thursday also gives the candidates who have answered some but not all of our 30 questions a chance to complete their answers, which will be accepted until Governor Romney's speech on Thursday. Please be advised that your answers will be ordered from top to bottom online and in the emails in the order the last of the 30 questions was answered. If you really wish to skip any of the remaining questions, please indicate as such, and that indication will count as your response. Also, if you agree with some but not all elements of any of the remaining questions, please discuss it in the body of your reply. Please do not change the question and then agree with the modified question. While that may be a common tactic during the debates, it is glaringly obvious in written format.

Church leaders, thank you for your patience. As promised, we look forward to emailing you the candidates' answers first after Governor Romney's speech on Thursday.
