The Obama campaign has pledged not to make Mitt Romney's religion part of the campaign but a suggested talking point on a campaign-linked website shows some Obama supporters aren’t getting the message, BuzzFeed.com reported.

Laurence De Palma, a campaign supporter who, according to posting lives in East Nashville, told volunteers they should use talking points to discuss Romney’s religion and convince Southern Christian voters they shouldn't vote for a Mormon, according to Buzzfeed.com.

"I'm thinking that even though we don't LIKE campaigns to get nasty, we in the south (TN) come to EXPECT it. What we also know is that we have a very 'rigid' view of Christianity, and apparently, Mormonism isn't anywhere in our views. This could easily win TN/SC/AL/GA, etc.,"De Palma wrote on a campaign platform that links online activism with grassroots campaigning.

The post went on to discuss Mormonism beliefs and cast them as clashing with Christianity.

“The Bible tells us that Jesus—the Jesus of Mormonism—is definitely not the same Jesus of the Bible. Therefore, faith in the Mormon Jesus is faith misplaced because the Mormon Jesus doesn’t exist,” the post read.

The Obama campaign removed the post after BuzzFeed inquired about it.
