Skip to comments.Meet Mitt Romney’s cousin (Uh-oh!)
Posted on 02/03/2012 6:05:16 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Park Romney says some pretty wild things.
Mormonism, he writes on the Web site parkromney.com, is an insidious contemporary fraud.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is an American cult, he professes.
Mitt Romney, he claims, would be conflicted in office because obedience to the leadership of the Mormon Church is part of the covenant of the temple ordinances to which Mitt Romney is absolutely a party.
Were you to come across a man articulating such views on a street corner, you probably would give him a wide berth and look over your shoulder to make sure he wasnt following you.
But Park Romney, apostate Mormon, is no street-corner eccentric. He is Mitt Romneys second cousin. Church documents and archival research done by The Posts Lucy Shackelford trace Parks lineage to Miles Park Romney, who is also Mitts great-grandfather.
The two men have never met. (Miles Park Romney had 30 children, which means Mitt Romney has scores of cousins.) And, based on what Park has been writing, hes not likely to get a dinner invitation from Mitt anytime soon. Gov. Romney has never heard of this person, and he doesnt know him, campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said....

I remember Huntsman.
This is ALARMING but only us on FR will ever hear about it.
Wait till they start digging into Romneys Grandpa and also the ancestor that was murdered by his 12th wife’s lawful husband.
I’ll sure spread it around!
I'd say "not yet" but Romney will never be President anyway.
I’d like to prevent him from being the nominee.
But Park Romney, apostate Mormon, is no street-corner eccentric/
The remark above is from the article which calls Park Romney an apostate. My remark was aimed at him.
I suppose Newt is too much a gentleman to go hot with this.
Drip, drip, drip.
I don’t think that Newt would dare touch it. Look what happened with questioning Bain’s dealings. And it WAS legitimate to question it.
“This may get some notice, but it looks like they are painting Park as the crazy cousin.”
The way it works, is that he is the crazy cousin until the RNC Convention is over...then another second cousin pops up and swears that Romney must know the formerly crazy cousin and in fact, personally joked about having 3 wives to him.
That is so Liberal minded of you.
The Soylandra scandal cost the taxpayer a lot of money. Oh yeah, what about Haliburton? Huh, huh?
Bishop Romney will never be president. You xaN SPIN THIS CULT IN WHATEVER DIRECTION YOU WISH TO SPIN IT, BUT IT IS STILL A CULT.
The prophet himself told Bishop Romney to run? Really? I thought only the blessings of Gos Himself had any meaning. All you’ve told me is that Bishop Romney would attempt to run this nation as a mormon. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
Then how are we going to handle this?
If all 400,000 of us e-mailed it to our lists, it’d be world-wide news before my birthday (tomorrow) is over!!
And keep it in the forefront on FR.
Bet Drudge never sees or hears it.
I wished we could say that, but the only evidence is that they had a private meeting in 2006, or 2007, where the prophet gave him the green light, to run. I might still be able to locate the Deseret News article.
Dana Milbank doesn’t poot or blow his nose without clearance from David Plouffe or David Axelrod, so this was okayed at the top.
