There are many, many reasons not to like Mitt Romney, but his Mormonism isn't one of them.
The state of Utah has the fewest auto accidents in which alcohol is a factor. It's like 26% to 40 or 50% for the rest of the country. Mormons tend to be civic-minded, clean-living people. As a Catholic, I belong to a tradition that upholds a three-part God, an immaculate conception and the idea that a wafer of bread actually becomes a piece of skin during a mass. But what the hell, everyone has to believe something.
As far as Romney himself, he seems phony to me. He has flip-flopped on so many issues that it is really hard to tell what he actually believes.
And, really, it doesn't matter because he has tied himself to a Republican machine that supports torture, elimination of habeas corpus, $3 trillion dollars in additional debt, disregard for international organizations and a strike-first foreign policy.
When voting for president, it is not about the individual.
