Cher - Cher Upsets Mormons With Alleged Slur

Cher has upset leading Mormons by using a derogatory term in a Twitter.com attack on U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
The pop superstar, who is a fervent Democrat, sent out a tweet on Friday (29Jun12), urging President Barack Obama and his aides to get organised or risk losing November's (12) election to Republican Romney, who is a Mormon.
Cher wrote, "I Feel if he (Obama) doesn't get all his Ducks In A Row we'll b forced 2 listen 2Uncaring Richy Rich! The whitest man in Magic Underwear in the WH (White House)."
Her remarks have upset prominent members of the Mormon church, who wear formal garments known as "celestial underwear". The term "magic underwear" is considered offensive.
Mormons took to Twitter.com in droves to take aim at Cher, with one calling her an "anti-Mormon bigot", and another stating, "I guess she is another example of a celebrity who surrounds themselves with people who always tell them what they want to hear so that they don't have to think before they speak or tweet in this case."

Cher was a disgrace dancing around in her underwear on the battleship New Jersey in one of her videos several years ago.And Moracle, please don't make excusses for her. Cher knew exactly what she was saying and intended it to be an insult. The lifestyle she lives and promotes is clearly not compatible with Mormonism. The more she learns about us, the more she would mock sacred things.

I'm a Mormon and I've always admired and appreciated Cher, her personality, and her voice, and still do. However, I realize her views of my faith must have been distorted by false information, because I know her sense of fairness and ethics would never allow her to knowingly put down others, unless she truly believed she was doing the right thing. If she knew what we really believe, I think she would be an avid supporter of Mormons and their beliefs. It's so important to go to the source to find the truth of any organization, not to those who are against them, or in competition with them. Who would go to State Farm to learn about Allstate? Cher, please check out: Mormon.org to learn what Mormons really believe.
