Marco Rubio Sticks Up for Romney, Scolds Gingrich

Marco Rubio is sticking to his promise to stay officially neutral in the GOP primary, but earlier this week Newt Gingrich started running around the state and basically inferring that he was the Marco Rubio to Mitt Romney's Charlie Crist. At least when he wasn't busy calling Romney "anit-immigrant."

Well, Rubio has responded and put Gingrich in his place by sticking up for ol' Mittens.

"Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist," Rubio said according to Naked Politics. "Romney is a conservative. and he was one of the first national Republican leaders to endorse me. He came to Florida, campaigned hard for me, and made a real difference in my race."

Gingrich's campaign has also been airing a Spanish-language radio ad in South Florida that calls Romney "anti-immigrant." In separate remarks in the past day, Rubio also took Gingrich's campaign to task over the ad.

"This kind of language is more than just unfortunate. It's inaccurate, inflammatory, and doesn't belong in this campaign," Rubio told The Miami Herald. "The truth is that neither of these two men is anti-immigrant ... Both are pro-legal immigration and both have positive messages that play well in the Hispanic community."

Update: Newt Gingrich has now pulled the ad that calls Romney "anti-immigrant" from the airwaves. Guess he probably won't go through with rumors that he'd start airing ads comparing Romney to Crist.

God, One of Many Gods, is An Exalted Man, Who is Married with Many WivesMormonism teaches that God is a an exalted man, that he used to be a man on another planet and he is only one of countless gods and that God is married and he brought one of his wives to this world and produces spirit children who then inhabit human bodies at birth.God Had Sex with Mary Mormons say God had sex with Mary and produced Jesus! According to Mormonism there was no virgin birth. "The Father came down from heaven...and begat the Savior of the World; for He is the Only Begotten of the Father which could not have been if the Father did not

 actually beget him in person...The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and blood." (Brigham Young, Journal Of Discourses, Vol. 1 page 238 and8:115)

Man Can Become GodMormons believe that man can become God! "The Lord created you and me for the purpose of becoming Gods like Himself." Brigham Young (Journal Of Discourses 3:93).Jesus Was A PolygamistThe reason people "persecuted Jesus Christ, was because he had so many wives; there were Elizabeth and Mary, and a host of others." [Journal of Discourses, Vol 1. ppl 345-346] "The

 Scripture says the Lord, came walking in the Temple, with HIS TRAIN; I do not know who they were, unless his wives and children." Brigham Young [Journal of Discourses,Vol.13.pg309]Jesus and Satan Are Spirit Brothers

Mormons believe that Jesus and Satan are spirit brothers. [Journal of Discourses, 93:21]Salvation through Joseph Smith"No man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith...every man and woman must have the certificate of Joseph Smith." [Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, vol. 7, p.289-91]The Bible Is Not Infallible and Is Not Reliable Mormons teach that the Bible has many errors and is unreliable and was corrupted in translation and it is not infallible.They believe their Book of Mormon is God's Word. It is  “the most correct of any book on earth and the keystone of our religion." Joseph Smith

Polygamy Marriages in HeavenMormon’s believe that you can be married to many wives in Heaven.Baptism for the DeadMormon's baptize people in water on behalf of dead people for the forgiveness of their sins.

Mormon's Holy UnderwearMormons have a Temple Ceremony where the person is given "Mormon Underwear" that is to protect them against the Evil One.

Joseph Smith, Mormon Founder, Met Jesus In 1820 Mormon founder Joseph Smith was 14 years old and he said God the Father and Jesus met him outside of New York. Three years later he said an Angel named Moroni inspired him to write the Book of Mormon, which is "another Bible" and "new revelation" of

Jesus Christ and it is about an ancient people who came from the middle east to the Americas. The Mormons follow 2 other books, Doctrine & Covenants & Pearl of Great Price.Joseph Smith Met John the BaptistIn 1829 Joseph Smith said John the Baptist appeared to him and ordained him.

Christians Are All Wrong...Their Creeds Are An Abomination Joseph Smith said, Christians were "all wrong... all their creeds were an admonition." Joseph Smith Greater Than Jesus Smith said, "I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam...Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I"Joseph Smith:"I Am Impregnable...God is My Right Hand Man"Smith said, "The whole Earth shall bear me witness that I, like the towering rock in the

 midst of the ocean, am impregnable...I combat the errors of ages... I solve mathematical problems of universities, with truth, diamond truth; and God is my right hand man... you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves,"

 Brigham Young, Mormon's 2nd Prophet, Creates New Scriptures Young said, "I have never yet preached a sermon and sent it out that they may not call Scripture. Let me have the privilege of correcting a sermon, and it is as good a scripture"Mormon PolygamyAfter 1852, when the Mormon Church was openly practicing polygamy, the leaders of the church were declaring that it was absolutely essential for exaltation. A revelation given by Joseph Smith, "Ten virgins given unto him [Solomon] by this law,he cannot commit adultery...therefore is he justified." Joseph Smith A Polygamist...An Adulterer...and A Pedophile Joseph Smith had 33 wives! He married several who were married to other men." Nancy Marinda Johnson married Joseph Smith while her husband, Orson Hyde, was on a mission to Jerusalem." Mary Elizabeth Rollins Lightner, the wife of Adam Lightner, said that Joseph claimed an "angel" came with a "drawn sword" and told him that if

 he did not enter into polygamy "he would slay him." Joseph Smith's youngest wife, Helen Mar Kimball, was 14 years old!!!!Joseph Smith Wife Damned If She Doesn't Accept Polygamy  Joseph Smith prophesied his first and only legal wife Emma would be damned or destroyed if she did not accept polygamy (Doctrine & Covenants 132). Brigham Young 55 Wives and 57 ChildrenBrigham Young, the 2nd Prophet of Mormonism had 55 wives and 57 children!!Must Commit Polygamy to Become Gods Brigham Young said, "The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those who enter into polygamy." (Journal of Discourses, vol. 11,269)  "If you want to become a god one day you must violate the already given law of God now. "[Doctrine and Covenants132 Verses 62-63] Must Commit Polygamy or You Will Be Damned and Not Enter God's Glory 

"He that abideth not this law (polygamy) can in no wise enter into my glory, but shall be damned, saith the Lord." (D&C,132:27). "Now if any of you deny the plurality of wives, I promise that you will be damned." Brigham YoungMormonism is Not Christian"Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people."[Jesus Christ,Mt.24:11]

It is a common misconception for people to think that celebrities and "famous personalities" are

immune to the perils of life like the rest of us. Not true, celebrities are human beings too and

are just as vulnerable as you and me.Any sexually active person is capable of catching (and spreading) an STD. This is actually one of

the scary things about Herpes and STDs - the fact that anyone can become infected.When a person's private and personal life becomes a public affair the world get's a small glimpse

of how celebrities can and 'do' have herpes too. Some celebrities even joined The most active and completely anonymous community stdster.,.c0m for

singles with hiv and other stds.

Geesh, Romney and Newt are both getting stupid and turning this thing into a circular firing squad. All that matters is Obama is gone- a freaking lamp post could do a better job (it would pass less regulations, spending, and rules and would pass the same number of balanced budgets)- so go back to arguing who is best to knock him out and less of this other garbage.

A Cuban on the ballot means nothing to the general population of the Hispanic community. Most Latin Americans don't like Cubans

Is their a double standard regarding illegal aliens when it comes to Cubans entering the US?

The same Marco Rubio? That Talks Big but Fails to Deliver?
