I think Romney is an Atheist because people who really believed in God wouldn’t use God and his church in part of a lie to cover up his Cayman Island bank accounts where he hides his money. Do you believe Romney is telling the truth?

HOPKINS, Minn.  – Mitt Romney has offered a new explanation for his resistance to releasing more than two years of tax returns, telling Parade Magazine that he never intended for the amount of money he gives to the Mormon church to be made public.

“Our church doesn’t publish how much people have given,” Romney told Parade Magazine in an interview that will appear in the August 26 issue of the magazine

“This is done entirely privately,” he said. “One of the downsides of releasing one’s financial information is that this is now all public, but we had never intended our contributions to be known. It’s a very personal thing between ourselves and our commitment to our God and to our church.”

Ann Romney, who joined her husband for the interview, added, “When Mitt and I give that check, I actually cry.” – Article

    Because you leftists infer from your own selfish viewpoint, you reason Romney gave less than 10%.

    Rather its much more likely he gave much more, and it would embarrass both the Mormon church and himself if secular folks saw how much….not only would they not understand such generosity (probably 30% tithe), they would blaspheme and slander one as money hungry, the other a fool.

      TEAD human cupidity being what it is, I’ll believe it when I see his tax returns…

      • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

        He’s be a fool to release fodder for the smear machine…

        He didn’t have to release any, its not a requirement for office.

        Barely any of those who clamor for him to release, have released theirs.

        Trump had an excellent suggestion, offer to trade his returns for the release of Obama’s Foreign Student loan information that paid for his affirmative action admittance.

          There it is. Taxed Enough gets to the point.
          If Romney is smart, he will offer to release his tax returns when Obama releases his sealed school records.
          He or one of his surrogates will DEMAND this exchange from the floor of the Republican Convention on prime time TV.

            Oh Puhleeze. Bring it on. A great trade for Obama because there’s nothing controversial there. You been living in the FauxZone too long, Ah_Yea. :)

    A. If this issue doesn’t get more Americans living in big houses and driving 4x4s it’s irrelevant.

    B. There are -1 people who would make a better POTUS than the current one, so vote for Mitt!

    Nice… That was supposed to be “(American population)-1″.

    My bad for using angle brackets.

    What “truth“?! We’re talking about POLITICS and RELIGION here!!! If you want “truth” then try looking at science. Cause there is no truth where beliefs and bullshit are center stage.

    Heeelllllooo? McFly! You wanna try thinking a little? Do you really think that people who claim to believe in god wouldn’t lie or try and make a little bit of money by promoting their beliefs – or IMPOSING them?! People have been doing that for THOUSANDS OF YEARS! Where the F*** have you been?

    Oh sure! Maybe a few bad old “sinners” may have made some money and probably want to keep it. But then I dare you to try and explain why every damned church also always wants money too! …It’s the root of all WHAT again?!

    If you ask me, Atheists are perhaps the only “enlightened” group of people on planet EARTH! And to include a dumb ass Mormon like Mitt Romney in that group is quite an insult to BOTH groups!

    Get real! Romney is only slightly better than Obama. And that’s cause we already know where Obama has been and is likely to continue going. The only thing Obama was right about was that “change” thing. We need to change our President to someone who won’t financially screw us into oblivion or at least not screw us quite as fast!

    • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

      If supposing a house “by chance” rose up from the ground, is “enlightened”, then atheists supposing life rose up “by chance” are enlightened.

      If its stupid, then they are stupid.

      Hmm, this is a tough one….

    So how much did Romney give in his 2010 tax return?

  7. deowll says:

    The Bible says a tithe is a tenth of what you make. Businesses may gross millions and net zip or even go in the hole. I do not agree that people are supposed to give a tenth of their gross. A tenth of your net is a lot more reasonable.

    If you look at Romney’s past tax returns he looks to have been giving a tenth of what he nets plus a bit.

    Of the candidates running it’s Biden whose tax returns suggests he leaves charity to others. Since Palin cleaned his plow in the last debate and he now appears to be about as bright as a show box full of door nobs I’ll attribute his lack of charity to some form of progressive dementia common in older people

    I still wish Romney would trade two years of his tax returns for Obama’s Columbia college records.

      my use of show box doesn’t suggest age is doing my any favors either.

      • HMeyers says:

        Romney announced he was going to run for president in 2006 and put a lot of planning into it.

        He started this campaign for president in 2010.

        I think the idea that something is hiding in his tax returns in any of the last 7 years is silly.

        He could probably release them right now, but I bet what he plans to do is release them after a debate with Obama to garner attention.

        9 to 1 odds, the tax returns have big donations to charity as this is guy who has been campaigning for president most of the last 7 years.

        He is highly into “image shaping”.

  9. Guyver says:

    And his tax returns are important for this campaign because? If Romney fraudulently did anything, the IRS would have already been all over him.

    The real problem is Obama can’t run on his record so he needs these distractions while people quibble over what Romney has LEGALLY done.

    But hey, if people want to make a mountain out of a mole hill, Romney should oblige on the condition that Obama release his college records to the public. Difference is Obama has spent millions keeping his college records out of the public eye. How much has Romney spent concerning his tax records? Food for thought.
