So I’ve veered into the dangerous realm of politics before on this blog, and now I’m veering into the dangerous world of religion and politics.
I’m a Mormon. My first choice for president is not Mitt Romney (go Ron Paul), but I can’t help to be a little offended when someone attacks the Mormon religion simply for political reasons. Lawrence O’Donnell went on a tirade during the most recent McLaughlin Group, in what can only be described as simple religious bigotry. You can see his little speech here.
I won’t ask the obvious question like what if he had said this about Jews, or about Catholics. Instead, I can’t help but point you to this interview on the Hugh Hewitt radio program. Mr. Hewitt asks Lawrence exactly the same question I would have asked him, had he made those same comments about any religion.
I thought about quoting some of Mr. Hewitts post here, but there is just so much good stuff, you really should read the whole thing.
