I normally have great respect for this man but this ill-informed bias is completely off the mark!

You can get him back by baptising him after he's dead.

Is anyone surprised that Romney's Mormonism has not been mentioned at all in the US election?

Why should they? Does that make any difference in how you think the country would be run if a Mormon was elected? Don't you think it unconstitutional to even ask people their religious affiliation before hiring them for a job? The Presidency is a job and I believe religion plays no role in the selection process.

At what point do you think his religious beliefs will interfere with his job duties and/or change his ability to do his job?

I would imagine it would be far easier to send someone to their death if you honestly believed they were heading for eternal bliss and would be reunited with their loved ones. Also, when deciding whom to vote for, I generally look for a candidate that shares my views. I'm not religious so I would be looking for his views on the economy, health, foreign policy etc. I’m not certain but I think the religious among us may see their particular faith as a criteria. Do you think, for example, if 3 candidates had exactly the same policies, that they would each receive 33.3% of the vote if one was a Christian, one was a muslim, and one was an atheist. If not, then religion would be influencing the process (we should also assume that they are all equally good speakers and use the media equally well to sell themselves). Do we really want that?

Sure, yeah, because no conflict has ever been started over religion, has it? And all the televangelists are all scrupulously honest and the priesthood (surely the very best of men?) are the very people you'd entrust your children to, knowing they won't come to any harm........ I hope you were being sarcastic.
