ANOTHER FAITH GROUP ORGANIZING TO SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA
To our fellow children of God who are members of the Church of Latter Day Saints, this blog commends you for the new organizing effort "Mormans for Obama."
Yes, not all Mormans are supporting Romney. At the Democratic National Convention yesterday the LDS Democrats gathered to show their support for President Obama. The room at the Holiday Inn was packed to overflow.
Among them was 53-year-old nurse practitioner Jennifer Meldau of South Carolina. She considers health care, education, and the environment to be her top causes. “Romney does not reflect my political beliefs,” she said.
Mormons for Obama have also mobilized on Facebook, where their page has roughly 300 “likes.” Here is the Facebook link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Mormons-for-Obama/113491828735304
Their website is here: http://mormonsforobama.org/
And don't forget, tonight at the Democratic National Convention, Sr. Simone Campbell will be speaking sometime after 8:00 pm EDT.
