    "In a survey that cuts against the media stereotype, a new Gallup Poll has found that more Democrats than Republicans say they would not vote for a Mormon for president. Twenty-seven percent of Democrats say they wouldn't vote for a Mormon, while 18 percent of Republicans say the same. For independents, the figure is 19 percent. "

    Anti-Mormon bias persists, notably among Democrats | Washington Examiner

    I would not vote for a Mormon but it has little to do with bigotry unless not wanting a cultist in office is bigotry.

    Is that any less 'wrong' than not wanting to vote a Muslim in office because they're extremists?

    Thank you. The definition of bigotry.

    The sad thing is, you are proud of it.

    It's your vote, do what you want with it. Personally I do not trust Mormons to not put their personal beliefs before those of the nation. The same can be said of anyone who is overly religious but the LDS are especially prone to pushing their puritanical beliefs off on others.

    Mormon, Protestant, Catholic, what the hell does it matter? By the time one has reached the Presidency one has sold one's soul. Pffft!
    Put a lump o shite in the oval office, it'll have more spirit.

    Is it bigoted to not want someone running my country who believes in fantasy?

    The constitution does not allow god to tell US leaders to do anything.
    Or at least for them to act on gods orders in any governmental matter.
