7. Suspect they deal with Mormons the way we deal with their characterization of the left and Muslims.

The wacko right like World Nut Daily says Democrats have a special love for Muslims. Since they paint them all with the same brush, and some are 'Islamofascists' according to right wing mythology, that's why we are closet fascists, too.

The Democratic Party is mostly secularist because that is where we can all come together to work to make things better for everyone. We believe we have no business telling anyone what to believe or not believe, and have no dog in these religious fights. If they take that tack regarding Mormons, Republicans may have actually understood tthe First Amendment and what Kennedy said.

There was a video here some time back with Romney looking quite reasonable in an interview with a far right religious pundit. In it he said he would follow the law of the land, not his own personal beliefs, just as Kennedy said:



The war on women and gays is more from the Teabaggers, half of whom are Randians. But then we have Mormons, Catholics and Muslims who are not willing to give full rights to these groups either; or so we have been led to believe, but we know some don't support their dogma.

There are similarities between those religious cults and the Ayn Rand libertarians that regard a significant part of the human race not worthy to live, and that's the danger.

Whether they call the unworthies infidels, 'parasites,' welfare queens, whatever. That partly removes religion out of the equation. So I believe they will give him a pass, since they can't vote for Obama for reasons economic and religious and he's rich. That's a winner in both groups.

He's 'a statist/NWO destroyer of 'freedom and liberty' for the libertarians and Paulies for his hidden socialism.

To the religious right/apocalyptic cults, he's the anti-Christ and is coming to get them in his next term. So they ain't gonna vote for him.

Thus Romney wins their votes. Greed or God, take your pick, they'll show up for Mittens. Just MHO, though.
