Black Clergy And Other Concerned Christians Ask Governor Mitt Romney To Renounce His Racist Religion:

On Monday, March 12, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Rev. O’Neal Dozier and a group of concerned Clergy and other Christians will hold a News/Press Conference to publicly ask Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney to openly renounce his racist Mormon Religion.
The purpose of this request is to foster and maintain good race relations here in America.

The Mormon religion is prejudiced against Blacks, Jews and the Native American Indians. These allegations are substantiated and validated by the writings of the former Prophets and Seers of the Mormon Church. The Mormon Church says that the Book of Mormon is “the most correct book, even more correct than the Bible.” The Book of Mormon in 2nd Nephi, Chapters 5:21-23 accuses God of cursing African people and causing them to have black skin in order for them not to be attractive to white people. These verses also accuse God of causing the black African people to be disgusting and detestable to white people. Furthermore, these verses accuse God of being against inter-racial marriages between blacks and whites. The Mormon Prophet, Brigham Young in the (Mormon) Journal of Discourses further degrades black African people by saying that they are uncultured, unattractive, unpleasant, low-life, wild and unintelligent. Prophet Brigham Young further states that “if the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain (black person) the penalty under the Law of God is death on the spot.” Also, according to Mormon Doctrine, Native American Indians were also of the class of the cursed because their skin was also a darker color. Both Alma 3:6 and Mormon 5:15 of the Book of Mormon degrade the Lamanites, which are the Native American Indians in the same way they do black African people. The Mormon Church is also prejudiced against the Jews. In the (Mormon) Journal of Discourses, the Mormon Prophet, Brigham Young railed against the Jews in a very hateful way when he said, “I would rather undertake to convert five thousand Lamanites (Native American Indians), than to convert one of those poor miserable creatures (Jews) whose fathers killed the Savior… yes, I would rather undertake to CONVERT THE DEVIL HIMSELF, if it were possible… I would say, leave them and come home, the Lord does not require you to stay there, for they must suffer and be damned…leave them to live and die in their sins and ignorance…they take pleasure in their wickedness… (Mormon Journal of Discourses).
Also, it is newsworthy to mention that the Mormon Church has a bizarre Mormon practice that involves posthumously baptizing Non-Mormons by proxy. According to Helen Radkey, a former Mormon, both Adolf Hitler and Ted Bundy were baptized at Mormonism’s ground zero-Utah in 1993 and 2008 respectively. In fact, Radkey reported that the Mormon Church attempted to conceal the Hitler baptism. Helen Radkey also claims that the Mormon Church has posthumously baptized Holocaust victims, serial killers, 9/11 hijackers, Muslim terrorists, etc.
Because of the aforementioned facts, we believe that a Romney Presidential nomination for the Republican Party would widen the racial divide to a point of no return, because the Republican Party would be viewed as a racist political party. Romney’s nomination would cause the erroneous view that has long existed in the minds of black people, that the Republican Party is prejudice to become a reality. Also, if Romney gets the nomination, President Obama’s super pacs will educate the American people about his racist religion and he will probably lose to Obama.
If further information is needed, please contact Rev. O’Neal Dozier at (754) 366-3392 (cell) or (954) 978-2020 or by e-mail at pastordozier@twwcc.org

2 Nephi 5:21-23 is NOT referring to African people in any way. It is referring to people on the American continents over 500 years before the coming of Christ. It helps to read the footnote on "blackness" which leads to 2 Nephi 26:33 which says that God "inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile." A reasonable study of the Book of Mormon would allow that the "blackness" that came upon the people in 2 Nephi may have been due to cultural factors such as Semitic people not waring much in the way of clothing.

Rev. Dozier sound like a good and educated man from the description of him on his Church's website. However, it is unwise and unfair to quote out of context from a source especially without studying it directly.

The Official position of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on racism is:
"We believe all people are God’s children and are equal in His eyes and in the Church. We do not tolerate racism in any form. . . . We condemn racism, including any and all past racism by individuals both inside and outside the Church."

"We condemn racism, including any and all past racism by individuals both inside and outside the Church."
Is this true?
So the church is now condemning Brigham Young - It's second prophet and seer who said:
"The Lord had cursed Cain's seed with blackness and prohibited them the Priesthood."
and when he said:
"that blacks would not receive the priesthood until the last of the posterity of Able had received the priesthood, until the redemption of the earth."
Or how about the more recent prophet David O' Mckay when in 1947 he said:
"From the days of the Prophet Joseph Smith even until now, it is has been the doctrine of the Church, never questioned by any of the Church leaders, that the Negroes are not entitled to the full blessings of the Gospel."
he also says:
"Furthermore, your ideas, as we understand them, appear to contemplate the intermarriage of the Negro and White races, a concept which has heretofore been most repugnant to most normal-minded people from the ancient patriarchs till now."
I wasn't aware of the church ever condemning its past prophets who speak directly to god? That would be a huge step forward.

While I do not condone his opinions, Brigham Young was a product of his times. You can't judge a 19th century man by 21st century standards. From what I've read of him, he was probably one of the more progressive people of his day as far as race relations.
As far as being a prophet, God does not reveal everything He knows to His prophets. They are permitted to have their own opinions. He very vocally condemned any mistreatment of anyone based on race, or skin color. There were blacks who were members of the church, and as far as I know, they were not segregated from the whites, as other churches of that day were doing.
It's quite easy to take a little snippet or sound bite from a speech, and make it say something totally different than what was intended. Especially when that person is no longer around to defend himself.
We are blessed to have living prophets and apostles. We do not have to take everything a past prophet said and try to figure out what he was saying. Also, if something he said was not quite right, God can correct it with the next prophet.
When the revelation came in 1978 giving ALL worthy males in our church the priesthood, this is what one apostle, Bruce R. McConkie (who seemed to believe that blacks would never get the priesthood) had to say:

"We have read these passages and their associated passages for many years. We have seen what the words say and have said to ourselves, "Yes, it says that, but we must read out of it the taking of the gospel and the blessings of the temple to the Negro people, because they are denied certain things." There are statements in our literature by the early Brethren that we have interpreted to mean that the Negroes would not receive the priesthood in mortality. I have said the same things, and people write me letters and say,

"You said such and such, and how is it now that we do such and such?" All I can say is that it is time disbelieving people repented and got in line and believed in a living, modern prophet. Forget everything that I have said, or what President Brigham Young or President George Q. Cannon or whoever has said in days past that is contrary to the present revelation. We spoke with a limited understanding and without the light and knowledge that now has come into the world.

We get our truth and light line upon line and precept upon precept (2 Ne. 28:30; Isa. 28:9-10; D&C 98:11-12; 128:21). We have now added a new flood of intelligence and light on this particular subject, and it erases all the darkness and all the views and all the thoughts of the past. They don't matter anymore.

It doesn't make a particle of difference what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June 1978. It is a new day and a new arrangement, and the Lord has now given the revelation that sheds light out into the world on this subject. As to any slivers of light or any particles of darkness of the past, we forget about them. We now do what meridian Israel did when the Lord said the gospel should go to the Gentiles. We forget all the statements that limited the gospel to the house of Israel, and we start going to the Gentiles."

Reverend Dozier makes 8 allegations relating to the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but provides citations for only 3. He mis-reads and mis-understands the 3 citations he did make. Please provide citations for the other 5.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has renounced all forms of racism over and over again. People who want to attack the church ignore that and continue to promote hatred against "Mormons." Prominent black Mormons such as Gladys Knight and Kathy Stokes do not believe the church teaches racism.
There is no necessity to ask Mitt Romney to renounce his church; his church has already renounced racism.

And yet the church still has several universities named after a highly vocal racist? The Book of Mormon is still full of highly racist comments eg: 1 Nephi 12:23 And it came to pass that I beheld, after they had dwindled in unbelief they became a dark, and loathsome, and a filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations. Over the last (nearly) 200 years, how many of the 12 Apostles or Prophets (The top jobs) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been or are black? Answer: None

That means nothing. Everyone criticizes Brigham for teaching what the majority of religions taught back in that day.. and yet find it so difficult to describe how the Jews.. who are not of the black race.. are the chosen people of God. That means the black race is not chosen so therefore God must be a racist according to man's definition.

Yet God has said.. "Your ways are NOT my ways".

Replying to David Sandler,

Several of Brigham Young's statements were racist, and I condemn them. Brigham Young was also in the public spotlight for several decades and his racist views and rationalizations were typical of his day. I condemn Jefferson's and Lincoln's racist remarks, but am NOT calling for their pictures to be taken off of U.S. currency. ;-)

Again the quotation from the Book of Mormon in 1 Nephi are taken out of context. Nephi comments are about a Semitic people in about 550 B.C. on the American continent, NOT about black Africans or their descendents.

I suggest we judge the LDS prophet and apostles by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. This is NOT a backhand way of criticizing the content of the character of the 400,000+ black members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There have not yet been LDS apostles of Italian, Finnish, or Japanese ancestry. There are certainly LDS General Authorities of most all ethnic and "racial" backgrounds. (I put "racial" in quotes because I believe all of God's children are of the human race.) ;-)

Last I heard Jefferson and Lincoln weren't claiming to be the living prophets of the one true restored church on Earth under direct instruction from God? (Or did I miss that bit?)
So, you are in actual fact condemning the preachings of every prophet of the Mormon Church up until 1978. Doesn't that tell you something about your religion?
Oh, and last I checked Jefferson and Lincoln never had more than one wife each. How many did Brigham Young have? (55 according to wiki)
So, god told him to take 55 wives and that "The Lord had cursed Cain's seed with blackness and prohibited them the Priesthood." but that's OK , because that was all the rage at the time?
You may be oblivious to the history of your own religion. But the outside educated world is not.
If you would like to know the truth about your own religions racist background, here's a couple of great Videos on You Tube that go into a little more detail. http://youtu.be/oFP6VUGwmAg http://youtu.be/GxFuYerZUjg
Perhaps if you knew what your religion used to teach (Up to 1978), you'd be better qualified to comment whether or not something is actually being taken out of context.

@ Dave Sadler

Are you a believer in the old and new testament? In other words, do the teachings of the old testament prophets mean anything to you?

When Brigham Young said about mixing seed, he was not referring to inter-racial marriage. It was illegal back then. What he was no doubt saying was to condemn any priesthood holder who tried to "slack his sexual thirsts" on black slaves/servants. As a slave, you are owned, including your body, and your master can, technically, do whatever he wants with it, and you have no say. Brigham Young was condemning this practice. In the same speech, he said that, unless they started treating blacks as people, the country would be condemned by God.

This article is nothing more than an idiotic and uninformed evangelical attempt to throw dirt on Mormons simply because they don't like what Mormons believe.

I don't particularly care to way to waste my time answering such idiocy, however if you're interested, Stallion Cornell did take the time: http://stallioncornell.com/?p=1518
