Derrick Shore, a Mormon columnist, thinks so.
But here's why Mr. Romney's religion is relevant: For Mormons, there really is no such thing as separation of church and state.He then goes on to describe in detail how easy it is to mobilize the 'Mormon army' to action, using as an example the heinous anti-gay California measure, Prop 8.
From as early as I can remember, I was taught in church that the framers of our Constitution were directly influenced by God to create a nation where Jesus Christ could come to Earth and his true gospel could be restored. Essentially, Mormons believe that the United States was chosen and created specifically by God as the Promised Land where Earth's one true religion -- Mormonism -- could finally be discovered and then flourish.
I read Krakauer's book "Under the Banner of Heaven". It is not a religion that considers women equal to men. I asked my gay friend (who is from a strict Mormon family) if its as bad as the book says. He said yes, absolutely.
In some respects, maybe we are lucky because the guy is soooo awful in so many other ways, we don't have to get into the liberal grey area of his religion.
However, I would like to know what the community thinks:
Fair game? Or not? Why or why not?
