Mitt Romney - Presidential Candidate 2008

While there is a part of me that would love to see Romney win the presidency in 2008, a bigger part of me doesn't want to see my religion demonized and treated like a pinata. Amy Sullivan, writer for the Washington Monthly, hits the nail on the head with her article, "Mitt Romney's Evangelical Problem." The problem isn't that he's Mormon, it's that the evangelicals slander Mormonism in the worst way. If the evangelical reaction to Romney's religion as predicted in Sullivan's article comes true, I would rather he didn't run. While I respect many evangelicals, I don't want to cast my pearls before swine.
