Bigoted Anti-Mormon Evangelicals?

Mary Katharine Ham says:

In practice, [Mitt Romney] had every advantage– money, early support from a small group of incredibly influential conservatives (notably National Review), great buzz, a competent organization, a veritable arch-enemy of the base to run against– but it simply did not translate into a swell of support for him among rank-and-file Republicans.

FTFY.  [Fixed That For You]

Thankfully, Professor Blather (who, by the way, recently signed up for our Armed Forces) set NTWR straight:

That just gets so lame. And its such an obviously liberal tactic to use.

You are allowed to be less than fond of Romney without necessarily being an anti-Mormon bigot.

Just as you are allowed to be anti-Obama without being racist against Blacks.

How on can you even make such a statement and not see your obvious hypocrisy?

Or do you actually concur with liberals that to be against Obama is to be racist?

Wake up. Grow up. The world is not as simple as you want it to be.

I agree with Professor Blather. I know plenty of evangelicals who supported Romney. My opposition to Mitt Romney is not based on anti-Mormon bigotry. It is based on the fact that Mitt Romney has proven to be a lot like Barack Obama in that he tells people what they want to hear, rather than taking a principled stand and sticking to it.

Captain Ed wrote about this very topic on December 9, 2006:

Perhaps Romney has that explanation, but at the moment, it seems more likely that he’s sensing the political winds and following those rather than any deeply-held principles on the subject.

Update:

Typical:

He just can’t let it go, can he?

Hope Huckabee and the Huckabigots are happy with a pro-abortion VP.
