If you want a preview of the Left’s anti-Mormon bigotry from the upcoming general election season, be sure to read the execrable Frank Rich’s ad hominem attack on Mitt Romney in New York magazine:
The questions are not theological. Nor are they about polygamy, the scandalous credo that earlier Romneys practiced even after the church banned it in 1890. Rather, the questions are about the Mormon church’s political actions during Mitt Romney’s lifetime—and about what role Romney, as both a leader and major donor, might have played or is still playing in those actions. To ask these questions is not to be a religious bigot but to vet a candidate for the nation’s highest job.
See, the New York Jew only wants to examine Romney’s Mormon faith as much, I’m sure, as he wanted to take apart Barack Obama’s adherence to the black liberation theology of the Trinity United Church of Christ. Why should there be a religious test for Romney when there was none of any consequence for Obama? If the Evangelicals can make their peace with a Mormon, as they appear to be in growing numbers, then we can either enjoy this new age of Christian ecumenism —or revisit the explicit racism, socialism, and anti-Americanism of Obama’s Trinity UCC right along with the racism, sexism, and other sins of the LDS.
Won’t that pay your bills?
