    This cartoon is in execrable taste. I am no Republican supporter but it is a disgraceful slur on Romny to suggest that he has moral equivalence with Ahmadinejad.

    Nice one, The. Like many cartoons, this one can be interpreted in many ways. One is as an illustration of the double-standards of the Iranian president. But anyway, it’s educational to see ourselves from another’s perspective.

  • “I am no Republican supporter but it is a disgraceful slur on Romny to suggest that he has moral equivalence with Ahmadinejad.”

    It certainly looks like a slur on Mormons in general. What kind of liberalism does this represent?

    Given the USA’s track record of launching various kinds of wars against other countries, then the existence of the USA’s nuclear weapons is a concern for all of humanity. The USA remains the only country that has ever used nuclear weapons and there continues to be debate about the morality of the use of those nuclear weapons. In what circumstances would the USA (or GB) use it’s nuclear weapons? Has any US or GB government ever answered that question? Is the US President or the British Prime Minister any more to be trusted with nuclear weapons than the Iranian president? All three of them claim to be inspired by an unseen deity and all three follow religions that place an emphasis on some kind of apocalyptic ending for mankind. Scary. Perhaps no nations hould be allowed nuclear weapons?

    Very poor. Yes Romney is a Mormon, but there is nothing to suggest he is any kind of Mormon extremist (actually many of his publis statments suggest quite the opposite). There are over 14 million Mormons, they are not all extremists.

    The LDS church has some pretty wiered views, but it is also a church that has recieved a huge amount of persecution in its history. Romney is not in-fact the first Mormon to run for president, Joseph Smith, the founder of the LDS church, ran in 1844 but was killed by a mob. Nobody was ever convicted of his murder.

    I do not like Mormonism, I do not like the leadership of Iran, I do not like Romney, I really do not like nuclear weapons but I also do not like this comic.
