For the 2nd time in just a few days leading up to the election, CNN has front paged a story about Obama's religion. This time they included a reference to Jeremiah Wright. A few days ago, CNN had another front paged article on Obama's faith titled "Is Obama the right kind of Christian?".

How presidency changed Obama's faith
These days, when the president talks about his religion, he sounds like a born-again Christian. After leaving the famously controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright in 2008, Obama's faith life has taken new turns in the Oval Office.
How about we get some front-paged stories on Romney being a Bishop in the Mormon church who had some pretty abhorrent policies before 1980, while Romney was a member, including the exclusion of black men from the priesthood up until Mormons were pressured to remove that provision in 1978.

To put this in perspective- Romney was a member of a church at age 30 (1977) that was hateful and banned black people from being priests. That's a bit extreme, because at age 30 I would have gotten the hell out of that church.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
