Politics Explained: Romney and Ryan portrayed as Mormon Missionaries in political cartoon

Romney and Ryan portrayed as Mormon missionaries

You may have seen this before. This is not the first time that the media has poked at Romney because of his religion, but this is the first time that someone else has been roped into it.

My general reaction is, I would wish people would have the decency to not poke fun at religious beliefs, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t surprise me that they do.

Recently, I’ve spent some time going through political cartoons, trying to find ones worthy of passing along on this blog’s Facebook page. I’ve noticed that most political cartoons go for shock value. They want it to be something that people will talk about and share with the hopes that as it is passed around, people will come to agree with the message that is. This is no different, and obviously it worked as I am here talking about it.

However, just because people are talking about it, does not justify being insensitive to a person’s religion. However, what can you do in such a situation? Kick and scream and demand that it be rescinded? Nothing will come of it. All we can do is take the time to spread the truth.

The thing is, yes, Romney and Ryan do have some proselytizing to do, not for any religion, but for free market capitalism. And yes they are going to save the rich, but like most political cartoons, this fall short in its analysis. Not only are they going to save the rich, but they’re also going to save the poor and middle class. Unlike the left, Romney and Ryan want all Americans to succeed. They don’t have the mentality that “if everyone can’t be successful, then no one can,” like the Obama administration is perpetuating.

If they want to make fun of religion like kids in high school, let them. Because at the end of the day, it’s not about these little side distractions; it’s about getting America working again, and Romney and Ryan are the best companionship to make it happen.

  1. the thing about commenting on these things, often, is that “any press is good press”. That’s why the Church didn’t come out against the Book of Mormon Broadway musical, because getting people fired up about something, regardless of which side they’re on is exactly what the people that make this entertainment want.
