Inside a Mormon Temple Ceremony (a.k.a. Mitt Romney Actually Believes This)

The first rule of Mormon Club is: You do not talk about Mormon Club.

But someone managed to sneak into a Mormon temple ceremony known as the Endowment, in which participants are prepared to become “kings, queens, priests, and priestesses in the afterlife.”

The video’s taken off, receiving over 100,000 views in the past day or so.

It seems worthy of mockery, but realize that other religions are no less wacky. We’ve just become accustomed to things like eating the body of Jesus, getting baptized, and bowing down in the direction of Mecca.

None of it makes any sense… but this one’s special because Mitt Romney believes this particular form of nuttery.

There’s no religious test for public office, and that’s a good thing. However, rational judgment is a quality we ought to look for in any President. If Romney thinks this ceremony is legit, it’s just another reason for voters to question what goes on in his mind.
