It has been part of Mormon scripture that blacks embodied the "curse of Cain." Early LDS leader, Brigham Young warned against "mingling" with blacks.
"The moment we consent to mingle with the seed of Cain, the Church must go to destruction--we should receive the curse which has been placed upon the seed of Cain, and never more be numbered with the children of Adam who are heirs to the Priesthood until that curse be removed."
Now Mitt Romney's greatest Republican obstacle in his quest for the White House is a black guy named, of all things, Cain. I suppose that, to Romney, Herman Cain's women trouble must then be manna from Heaven.
Of course Romney has an ace up his sleeve when it comes to the like of Cain - Mormon Magic Underwear!
You can expect to hear more about curious Mormon beliefs as the campaign progresses. They'll be used to try to split Romney from fundamentalist Christian supporters.
