    is what the catholic Church says about Mormonism.

    If Ryan makes all his decisions based on his faith, how does he reconcile his support of a Mormon president with this.

    What does the Catholic Church say about the practices and beliefs of Mormonism?

    Answer

    While individual Mormons may be persons of good conscience, Mormonism itself is a belief system that would reduce the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit from being the three Persons of the one, true, and infinite God to being three limited, finite deities among an uncounted multitude of deities, all of whom merely reshaped small parts of a preexisting cosmos.

    Mormonism teaches that human beings may, by practicing the tenets of its faith, become gods and goddesses themselves, with their own planets full of people worshiping them.

    While the Catholic Church would reject nothing that is true or good in Mormonism or any other world religion, Catholic theology would have to note that there is a tremendous amount in Mormonism that is neither true nor good. Further, because Mormonism presents itself as a form of Christianity yet is incompatible with the historic Christian faith, sound pastoral practice would need to warn the Christian faithful: Mormon theology is blasphemous, polytheistic, and cannot be considered on par with the theology of other Christian groups.

    I personally don't give a shit, but Ryan says he does. Someone please ask him about what on earth he is doing on that ticket.

    Until inauguration day The USA is in the greatest danger it has ever experienced.
