When we see him in the Republican primary debates, is Mitt Romney wearing Magic Underwear under his suit?

Asked by saint (3972points) January 25th, 2012

I know little about the Mormon religion.
But like a lot people, I have heard about Magic Underwear. Do you suppose he was wearing it in the last debate?

I’m sure he was. It is called garment, btw. I always think of it in the same sense as Jews wearing a yarmulke, a Muslim wearing a taqiyah or a Christian wearing a crucifix.

That must be it..

A Mormon woman who wears it says that because she knows exactly what it’s like to wear it, she can always recognize the tiny telltale distortions of outline in a person’s clothing. I would imagine that a practicing Mormon ought to be able to tell us from observation.

Do any Christians other than Catholics wear crucifixes?

@bkcunningham – Actually, a better analogy for Jews would be the tzitzit (or “fringed undergarment”) that most Orthodox Jewish men wear under their clothing.

I’m sure he was. They wear the garments all day every day. And all night? I don’t know.
Marriott, owner of the hotels, is convinced he was saved from death by wearing his in a bad fire. He says he was burned above and below them but not burned where they were worn.
