    Bigotry means deciding without knowing the facts.

    I know the facts, and dislike and distrust morms.

    Does that count?

    No. You think you know the facts. There is a major difference.

    As for the article, the more the left attacks Mormons, the worse their prospects will be this year.

    I glanced through the "proof" your link offered but couldn't find any.

    Please be so kind and post some of the proof here.

    Any anti-mormonism would be among evangelicals, and I doubt there are very many evangelical liberals.

    36% of evangelicals don't like voting for mormons, 41% of non-religious, 43% of liberals, 32% of moderates, those are all scary numbers. If Romney were a fiscally conservative small gov't type I'd happily vote for him, sad that's not the case but couldn't care less about his religious affiliation.

    I have a feeling a lot of it is because of Romney in terms of democrats saying they're anti-mormon. Let's say Barack Obama was replaced by Harry Reid and the 2012 election was Harry Reid vs Mike Huckabee, I'm sure the numbers wouldn't have moved so drastically.

    Religious bigotry is part of the American Narrative, unfortunately, and the libs are as bad but not as bad as the right wing evangelicals and Pentecostals when it comes to Mormonism. Just google and find out.

    No, since you don't know what a "fact" is.

    :wtf:

    Sometimes you are so retarded it's like a work of art.

    I think I'll just let that one stand as it is, untouched.
