Mitt Romney admits he’s a big fan of ‘Twilight’
Yahoo News ^ | May 31, 2011 | Holly Baily

Is Mitt Romney trying to woo the teenage girl vote ahead of next year's presidential election?

In a potentially campaign-changing development, the 2012 presidential hopeful admitted to NBC's Jamie Gangel that he happens to be a fan of the "Twilight" series. The revelation came up during a discussion of books the former Massachusetts governor has read, including George W. Bush's recent memoir. But that's not all, Romney added.

"I like silly stuff, too," Romney volunteered. "I like the 'Twilight' series. That was fun."

The “Twilight” series are chicks flicks and books, the only men in the theater are those drag by their girlfriends and wives...what does that tell you about Mitt, that he is a fan?

Going after the pre-teen female vote, Mitt? Attaboy.

I'm reminded of the late-1990s "Behold the Power of Cheese" TV ad which featured a candidate saying the wrong thing and then getting doors slammed in his face. "What does Bob Dole think? Bob Dole thinks he's a doofus!"

My suspicion is that Mitt never heard of "Twilight" until his speechwriter told him this morning its important he be a fan.

Myth is such a fairy. What adult male would like this crap. I tried to make my way through one of those movies because it was free "On Demand". The acting is dull and the plots are so drawn out with long do nothing scenes. Just awful. You can tell Kristen Stewart is a pot head from her lifeless acting.

The Twilight series about vampires was written by a mormon woman

The hero is a twinkly guy vampire who falls for a human girl

In the end the girl marries him and becomes a vamoire

The theme is Vampires R good

The books have a lot of mormon doctrine symbolism

They are sold in the Mormon Deseret Books stores

The author of “Twilight” is also a mormon and that it has mormon-based themes entwined into the storyline.

Romney is just bleeding america of campaign money.. he surely knows already he hasnt a chance of being President.. The man could be and probably is a parasite.. a republican parasite.. He bleeds the political system of campaign cash which anybody that KNOWS how the system works... means ALL THAT CASH belongs to HIM after the election..

He is not required to send that money BACK or even keep records of who sent it.. data can get “LOST”.. The democrats totally exist on this oversight in campaign LAW... and the republicans LOVE IT AS WELL..

HOW bout a LAW that requires all candidates to send BACK the campaign money after the election if they did not get elected.. within 1 month.. and to produce a journal of all moneys spent during the election with names dates and bank account numbers the check was cleared through..

OH!.. and ALL moneys distributed through check or electronic transfer.. even petty cash..

Twilight is great! With the hero being a teenage half vampire who teems up with his little brother and two vampire killing friends. Best vampire death scenes ever!

Nope.

Exactly.

Here’s a good article on the Twilight series from the perspective of Biblical Christianity.

“Mormon Vampires in the Garden of Eden”
http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=22-08-024-f

From the article:

“This brings us back to the Garden of Eden. As mentioned above, Twilight is a romantic retelling of the story of Man’s Fall presented in the engaging and exciting wrappers of a romance and an international thriller. This may sound like a stretch, but consider the first book’s cover—a woman’s arms holding out an apple—and its opening epigraph—“But the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not taste of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Gen. 2:17).

“This isn’t, however, the story as Moses told it or as Christian saints and sages have understood it. As a Mormon, Mrs. Meyer departs from the traditional Christian understanding of that event, and the nature of her departure appeals to rather than repels her readers.

“Christians understand Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God, their “original sin,” or Fall, as the beginning of man’s distance from God, a distance that man could not restore on his own, but that required the incarnation and sacrifice of a divine, sinless Savior to accomplish.

“Mormons reject this interpretation. Not only do they hold the Pelagian view that human conscience and free will are sufficient for salvation, but they go a step further, asserting that, not only was the Fall not a bad thing, it was actually a good, even necessary thing for human salvation.”

It’s no surprise Mormon Mitt likes Twilight, but lovers of the Jesus Christ of the Bible (as opposed to the Book of Mormon) should stay away, and keep their kids away, too.

Two questions come to mind.

1. Are there vampires on Kolob?
(when will the paleomedia cover this?)

2. Why is Romney drunk again thinking about HIS FAVORITE vampire?

I am not a Romney fan at all, but I will give him kudos for reading those. He could have read them to screen for his teenage grandchildren, like I did. My daughter is so strict she went NO WAY! But when the grands complained to me, I got her permission to buy them and screen them for her since she’s so busy. Turned out they were just good triumphing over evil.

Then I got hooked. The writing in the Twilight series of books is some of the most excellent writing I’ve seen in my time for sci-fi fiction. The author had the ability to completely suck you back into the painful years of first love and adoration in a manner that was not hokey at all. Remember when you hated to be parted from your new love even for a day? Guys too. It was great feeling like a teenager again. And the other world she created was totally believable. And if you read the books first before seeing the movie it took a lot of the scarey out of seeing those vampires and werewolves the first time.

But I will warn you if you’re screening them for children, the book presents some of the vampires and the werewolves as good guys, and they are in the books. But when the teens get through reading them, remind them that in the real world, the bad guys really are ALWAYS the bad guys until it’s proven they aren’t. There’s not a lot of middle ground in the real world. And that’s a mistake that they don’t want to make in judgment.

Even my big bad old cowboy brothers read them when I told them about it and offered them my books. They loved it...the bad guys were so believable bad and the rumbles were very manly stuff. Then we all went to see the movies together. Was fun for us oldsters.

I would recommend it as good reading for any adult, unless of course you are the kind that doesn’t appreciate fiction at all, or especially sci-fi.

Don’t knock somebody on their reading adventures...knock them on their records. Romney has some seriously bad governance issues.

Here are the Mormon themes Aleiss id'd in her piece: Source citations Mormon imagery runs deep in ‘Twilight’

#1

Per Aleiss in her article: A crucial Mormon belief is that humans can become divine. In the “Twilight” series, the Cullen family of vampires once was human but now lives without death in a resurrected condition. Meyer describes the Cullens, particularly Edward, as “godlike” and “inhumanly beautiful.”

So. Mormons-who-become-gods are compared by this author to vampire creatures. Interesting parallel.

And who might be the "godlike," "inhumanly beautiful" Head Vampire might be?

Why, just go to the Bible, where passages from Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 seem to describe Lucifer as he was making the transition from angel to head devil:

'Godlike': I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." (Isaiah 14:14)

'Inhumanly beautiful':
11 The word of the LORD came to me:
12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
" 'You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.
14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.
15 You were blameless in your ways
from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.
16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.
17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the earth;
I made a spectacle of you before kings.
(Ezekiel 28:11-17)

#2 quote from Aleiss' article (same source): • A unique LDS teaching is that marriages are “sealed” for eternity; spouses are referred to as eternal companions. Bella describes her relationship with Edward as “forever.”

Yup. Jesus said people become like angels in eternity – minus marriage partners. Mormonism’s Joseph Smith always trumped Jesus, though.

He and his followers now claim that “families are forever” – including a woman who may marry three men over her lifetime. If she was “sealed” to each man “for eternity” in a Mormon temple marriage, then guess who has three husbands and sleeps with said husbands over the course of “eternity” per Mormonism?
