And while we're bashing Mormons...

Check out Mitt Romney's favorite book:

When asked his favorite novel in an interview shown yesterday on the Fox News Channel, Mitt Romney pointed to “Battlefield Earth,” a novel by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. That book was turned into a film by John Travolta, a Scientologist.

A spokesman said later it was one of Mr. Romney’s favorite novels.

“I’m not in favor of his religion by any means,” Mr. Romney, a Mormon, said. “But he wrote a book called ‘Battlefield Earth’ that was a very fun science-fiction book.

So he's a Mormon who likes Scientology novels. Wow. That's quite the combination. Also, if the book is anything like the movie, Romney's taste in literature should make him unfit to be President.


  • The book is much better than the movie though an atlas shrugged type of book when it comes to length.

    You might enjoy the book the movie was an abomination and all copies should be collected and burned so they never see the light of day ever again.
