    I wonder if the cause de jour would be Mormon bashing instead of Christian bashing as it is now.

    Most are too ignorant to understand the difference.... they lump Christians and Mormons into the same group. So it would just be more of the same.

    I doubt it... nobody made hay of Kerry being Catholic. The left just hates "Christians".

    So I guess what I am saying is no. If he were anything but Christian, he probably would not have been elected. Just my thought.

    Actually the idea that he claims to be Catholic pisses me off! You can't be 'pro-choice' and Catholic. Leave the Church and join a liberal Christian Protestant group.

    Only if he were a Republican. Carter "wore his religion" on his sleeve, and there was no open backlash because of it. Of course, the rules seemed to be different for a lot of things for Carter. Despite the fact that Carter was a Democrat and Democrats were in the majority at the time, words like "tyranny" and "totalitarianism" never came up. When Iranians were burning American flags in the street, we didn't insist that it was all Jimmy Carter's fault, we were angry with the Iranians.

    Maybe people never thought of words like tyranny or blamed Carter for much because our minds would wander to far while waiting in those gas lines.

    What if the president was a Marmon? Why, I guess we'd clean him up, restore him, and put him in a classic car show.

    Oh....MORMON!

    never mind....
