“Substitute Jews for Mormons and this lot would be permanently banned.”
Jews don’t get agitated when asked questions about the religion. Matter-of-fact, they are happy to talk about it if asked.
The posts referred to were not asking questions. They were making ugly slanders for the sake of ridicule. Did you read the thread?
The game is try to shame you into shutting up so the Mormonism question gets shoved aside and Mitt gets the nomination. It will work for a time, but the DNC is not about to let bigotry bullies (those calling folks bigots because they have questions reagrding the heresies in Mormonism) squelch the single biggest negative of their opponent. If Mitt gets the nomination, the democrats will hold everything, including a filibuster proof majority in the Seante because conservative voters will stay away in just a small enough percentage to hand the elections to democrats, sadly. You are being bullied by a team effort which surfaces on every Romney thread. Ridicule, condescension, and deception are the current tools of the Mormonism apologetics team pushing Romney, trying to get him over the top.
Have you ever talked to an Israeli conservative Jew about religion? I have. They were well beyond argumentative and defensive. Mitt did well against the radio interviewer.
