New York Times enlists Yale Professor to diss Romney’s Mormonism

Yale English professor, Harold Bloom, was given space in the New York Times to proclaim the idiocy of most religions but especially the Mormon one. He confesses that he reads the writings of atheist Christopher Hitchens “with pleasure”. He claims that “American religion centers upon the denial of death”. I find that statement to be false; most sermons revolve around how to live and celebrate life.

Mr. Bloom, without expressly stating, promotes the views of the secular-humanists that are so prevalent in University systems today. His Yale faculty web page indicates that he specializes in poetry. Interestingly, his anti-faith book titled “The American Religion” is not listed on the Yale faculty page.

So why would the New York Times choose this professor to author a piece that promotes the fear of electing a Mormon President? Couldn’t they find a professor of religious studies to do this? Probably not at Yale.

One Response to New York Times enlists Yale Professor to diss Romney’s Mormonism

    [RicRx – – I read this snippet on the web recently. Any reaction to it?]


    by Aaronita Smith

    Non-Mormon scholars as well as Mormon ones are aware of a hard-core pornographic drawing in the “Book of Abraham” which is Mormon-approved scripture.
    This Book is part of the “Pearl of Great Price” which, along with the “Book of Mormon” and the “Doctrine and Covenants,” make up the LDS church’s “triple combination” in one volume.
    The porn is found in Fig. 7 of Facsimile 2 in the “Book of Abraham” which shows two beings facing each other, which were described by Joseph Smith as representing the “Holy Ghost” and “God sitting upon his throne,” the latter clearly showing an aroused male sex organ.
    After Smith published this sketch in his newspaper in 1842, which offended Mormon sensibilities, the phallic portion was whited out for more than a century until the “restored” LDS church decided in 1981 to restore what had long been censored!
    Equally shocking was the discovery that the “Book of Abraham” had nothing to do with Abraham or his God but was actually based on ancient Egyptian funeral documents depicting occultic obscene practices – and the original sketches showed an erotic phallus on both beings including the one Smith blasphemously claimed was the Holy Ghost!
    For further information see “Book of Abraham” (Wikipedia). Also see Jerald and Sandra Tanner’s “Mormonism – Shadow or Reality?” which on 76 pages reproduces the original Egyptian X-rated drawings and shows how Smith altered them and created one of his many frauds. Highlights in the classic Tanner work can be seen by typing “Facts From Mormons (By a Utah Resident)” and “What LDS Leaders Say” on Yahoo.
