Why all the discussion lately over whether religion belongs in politics? Because some Conservative Christian (probably Compassionate, too) said Mormons don't qualify.
This is just one in a long line of events: Where was the outrage when Bush, Perry, Palin, Bachmann, Huckabee, etc., etc., were playing up their religiosity as political qualifications? The Republican National Convention has become a fundamentalist vetting party. Religion mattered very much when Obama was a "Muslim". Certainly, every Glenn Beck fan must believe that religion should be a factor in political decisions.
