In a recent appearance on The View, Ann Romney, who is apparently as much a Mittwit as her husband, claimed that Mitt and their sons having gone on Mormon missions to shove their religion down our throats proselytize about the Church of Latter Day Saints is the same as serving in the military.  That’s like saying little girls in girl scout uniforms selling cookies door to door is the same as serving in the military.

When pressed by Whoopi Goldberg on how Romney would explain why neither he nor any of his five sons served, Ann explained that the six men found “different ways of serving” by going on their Mormon religious missions.

“So, you know, we find different ways of serving,” she said. “And my husband and my five boys did serve missions, [but they] did not serve in the military.”

The substitution, she went on to explain, makes sense because the two share essential, character-building and altruistic values.  Read more at salon.com

Really!  I had no idea those bicycle riding white shirt and tie wearing young men ringing doorbells and annoying people were putting themselves in harm’s way.  I’d like to see the statistics on how many Mormon missionaries come home in body bags, missing limbs, suffer from PTSD, or many of the other multitude of maladies endured by our troops that have been to war.  How many Mormon parents have received the unthinkable news that their child won’t be coming home from their missions?

We should all be offended at Ms. Romney’s ignorance and insensitivity towards our troops and their loved ones.  How dare she make such a comparison!

If Romney wins the White House will he be proselytizing and or sending out missionaries to spread the word?  Will this constitute his foreign policy?  Could this be why he wants to increase the budget for the military?
