From ABC-4, the alternative gentile (non-Mormon) station in Salt Lake City:
Jon Huntsman, apparently, can swear like a sailor.OH MY HECK! I can't believe he said that! I bet the elders are all in an uproar. And the sisters, well, you can't make enough green Jello salad to cleanse your mind after hearing something like that.
Huntsman, in a recent article in a national magazine, is quoted as using a very bad word.
In fact Huntsman...is quoted as saying,
"...I know their politics, and I was angry that this guy could be thirty miles north of Islamabad...that's just such b-------, I can't even believe it."
For some, it may be surprising to hear that kind of word from someone with a strong LDS background.
Fox 4 News' Chris, Son of Sander, Vanocur continues:
Especially so, if you compare it to the other Mormon in the presidential race.Of course not! The man is as pure as the LDS "garments" section at ZCMI.
Mitt Romney has a reputation of being someone who doesn't swear.
Now, there was one alleged incident during Utah’s 2002 Olympics."Alleged," that's the key flipping word here. Anyone who says they heard Elder Mitt cuss is flipping full of sugar.
That's when reports surfaced that Romney may have said another bad word, but he denied it.
But why would Elder Huntsman commit such a grievous sin?
Did Jon Huntsman swear on purpose just to show a national audience he's a regular guy who can cuss?Of course he did. The man has always tried to appeal to the gentiles by being even more gentile than Joe Lieberman.
Or, did Huntsman swear to show he’s not like Romney?
But what was it Elder Romney supposedly said:
Romney’s worst language, by the way, may be - as reported during Utah’s Olympics - when he says “H-E double hockey sticks.”No way. I doubt he even debases himself with an occasional "Oh my heck."
