    romney was a mormon bishop.  reid never was.  it's different, especially in light of the LDS white horse philosophy.  

    also,

    Why not use this girls sex to say she has a secret feminist agenda, why not use her race to show a racial agenda, or her age a youth insurrection.  

    None of these other affiliations are even considered, with only a Mormon ring to show her affiliation with a group...and her individual motives then determined by that group affiliation.

    none of those other things is an affiliation.  she is a female, she is white, she is young.  she can't choose anything about any of that.  religion, though, is an affiliation that one chooses.  

    so there really is no comparison between racist/sexist/ageist thoughts and being biased against religion.
