Did God curse Mitt Romney by darkening his skin?

It's a fair question. Really.

You see, some people have noticed that Mitt's skin looked noticeably darker when he was interviewed by Univision yesterday.

So the question is this: Did Romney use make-up to darken his skin in order to appear more Latino to the Univision viewers? Or was there something else going on? Something that went on all the time in Romney's second favorite book, the Book of Mormon.

That book makes it clear that the Mormon God prefers white skin and punishes people by darkening their skin.
And he [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them [the Lamanites] ... wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. 2 Nephi 5:21
The Lamanites ... were led by their evil nature that they became wild, and ferocious, and a bloodthirsty people, full of idolatry and filthiness; feeding upon beasts of prey; dwelling in tents, and wandering about in the wilderness with a short skin girdle about their loins and their heads shaven.... And many of them did eat nothing save it was raw meat; and they were continually seeking to destroy us" Enos 1:20
He did it to the Lamanites (Native Americans) and he did it to black people (the descendants of Cain). Maybe he did it to Romney.

Here is how Governor Romney looked four years ago when he ran for president.

And here's how he looked in the Univision interview.

I'd say he doesn't look nearly so "fair and delightsome" now, with that "skin of blackness" all over him. I wonder if he's also become  "wild, and ferocious, ... bloodthirsty ... full of idolatry and filthiness; feeding upon beasts of prey" and  "wandering about in the wilderness with a short skin girdle" upon his loins.

It's hard to say. But it's a fair question.

I guess we'll have to see how he acts on the campaign trail and at the debates.  I can hardly wait.

I went to the "FAIR"... ;-)
Lots of good oxymormon apologetics, and sooooo much better-written than the Book of Mormon. I liked the part about how blacks weren't allowed to be clergy, but "the origin of the ban is unknown". Laaaaawlzzzz!
