HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -

District 7 Hamilton County Commission candidate Sabrena Turner is disavowing a Facebook post by her campaign manager that Republican primary opponent Phil Smartt called a slap at his Mormon religion.

"I haven't seen it, but as soon as I was made aware of it I called and asked that it be taken down," Turner said Friday afternoon.

The post on Thursday by Jonathan Mason on his personal Facebook page said this:

"Something to think about. Joseph Smith claimed that God and Jesus appeared to him and advised that Presbyterians, Baptists, and Methodists were all wrong and their beliefs were an abomination. How does this align with what the Bible tells us?'

It contained a link to a YouTube video titled, "Are Mormons Christian?"
