HARRY REID Cancels Speech At Mormon Church After Protesters Threaten to Show Up

Majority Leader Harry Reid canceled his speech at the Tule Springs Stake after angry calls and emails were received.
Midutah Radio reported, via FOX Nation:

Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada canceled giving his testimony at an LDS fireside last Sunday night because of angry calls, e-mails and even threats. The Democratic Senator is a member of the LDS Church and was invited to offer remarks at an LDS fireside at the Tule Springs Stake in Las Vegas. The fireside on “Why I Believe” was canceled after the threats were made. His press secretary said there were no threats of violence initiated against Reid but he canceled because of the threats against his invitation to speak. Sen. Reid received a warm welcome at BYU in October, 2007 and stands firm on his religious and political views. Reid has become a lightening rod in partisan bickering and faces defeat in his home state of Nevada in the upcoming November election.

Someone please explain this:

“There were no threats of violence initiated against Reid but he canceled because of the threats against his invitation to speak.”

What does that mean exactly?

UPDATE: Here’s what that means…
Harry canceled because protesters threatened to show up.
Independent American reported:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was supposed to chat with some LDS folks Sunday evening but the event was called off after protesters threatened to disrupt it.

This statement from Tule Spring Stake President Daren Richards to his bishops: “I am disappointed that people, primarily outside of our stake, threatened to disrupt the meeting and that unfortunately, due to security concerns, last night’s fireside did not occur. I told my Bishops to communicate to their members that Senator Reid wanted very much to participate with the Tule Springs stake at the scheduled ‘Why I Believe’ Fireside. Senator Reid was very sensitive about members who felt nervous or unsafe about coming to their own meetinghouses and he did not want them to have such feelings. It is for this reason that the fireside was not held last evening.”

    Someone must have threatened to disagree with him.

    Gail is right….. Harry was worried he might have to actually talk to and and answer a question from a constituent …

  • sliderblaze

    maybe someone threated to have him explain what negro dialect is?

  • hermie

    It means he is a coward. He would prefer to appear in front of cameras with his hand-picked SEIU/ACORN thugs, rather than actual constituents. It’s a tactic which is now commonplace amongst Dems who are in trouble with the voters.

    Maybe he needs to call Ann Coulter and let her explain what real threats look like. Reid is just a coward and was looking for any excuse to “cut and run”…one of his favorite maneuvers.

  • Hargoosh

    Harry would HAVE TO explain how in the world a “mormon in good standings” with the LDS church could promote ABORTION and MAKE ALL MORMONS and Christians Pay for them!
    Harry should be excommunicated and the LDS church should be the first to kick him in the BUTT.

    Hey, Harry, how does it feel to be afraid in your own town, your own state, your own country? THAT is the climate YOU and Obama and Pelosi and the rest of the Chicago thug government have created in this country, EVERYWHERE. The only difference in your case is that you would only have to have faced disgusted and righteously indignant AMERICAN CITIZENS. Thanks to you, WE have to face the wrath of the IRS, the EPA, HHS, Homeland Security, the FBI, the…….

    As usual, the MSM will hysterically report as if the sky is falling.

    awwww….poor baby. Welcome to the world conservatives live in every day. Every event you can be sure there is gonna be someone there to disrupt it. Even the state of the union for crying out loud

  • Xenu’s Paradox

    Reid should be excommunicated. He affiliates with “…any group or individual whose teachings or practices are contrary to or oppose those accepted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints…” (the Democratic Communists) which is a serious offense. Not to mention bearing false witness, openly questioning the President of the Church, encouraging members to disregard the counsel of the Apostles, and complicity in opening the door to taxpayer-funded abortions.

  • kinthenorthwest

    interesting….Is Reid LDS…Cause so is Beck and a few other conservatives…

    What a mix…

  • MochaLite

    Why I Believe what?? I get the strong sense that Reid believes in nothing except his own re-election.

  • Neo

    What will Harry do if the crazies at Westboro Baptist ever latch on to him ?

  • Chris Vehr


    —right on!

  • Xenu’s Paradox

    Yes, Reid is (at least technically) LDS.

    However, his actions speak louder than his words. He has openly accused a former President of the Church of teaching false doctrine, he advances the cause of Communism at every turn, and in general acts in a manner incompatible with the teachings of the Church.

    Now, I know many liberals who are LDS. I am not suggesting that being a Democrat is grounds for excommunication- but Reid has demonstrated that he either doesn’t understand the Gospel or doesn’t care about it IMO.

  • Ladue Pundit

    Don’t forget that Reid attacked fellow Mormon Mitt Romney for not being a good church member during the 2008 presidential primaries.

    How he could ever get away with that is unreal. Harry Reid has no grounding to attack anyone on moral, religious, or patriotic grounds. I cannot wait until his seat “is lost” to a conservative.
