Well, my calendar says it's 2007 A.D., but that's clearly a typo

Okay, let me make this clear: I don't like Mitt Romney. I don't want Mitt Romney to be president. And I myself have plenty of problems with the notion of a Mormon president.

But:

This is from today's New York Times.

Evangelical Christians, who make up a crucial voting block in the Republican Party, consider Mormonism to be heretical, and polls have indicated a significant number of Americans are less likely to vote for a Mormon presidential candidate.


HERETICAL.

A crucial voting block of the party that runs this country are likely to withhold their support from a particular candidate because they think he is a HERETIC.

A HERETIC.

Not because they think he's a flip-flopping toady who will take whatever position is convenient to win public support. Not because of his positions, or indeed anything about his politics whatsoever. It's because they think he's a HERETIC. An APOSTATE. He's left they embrace of the true church. He's some sort of crazy cultist who has turned away from the path of the Lord. He's a motherfucking HERETIC.

HE'S NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE 16TH CENTURY, PEOPLE.
