Poison. The NY Times is poison.
Perhaps you aren't aware of the fact that what is published in the NYT is picked up by many of the state-run media outlets. That's why I found Axelrod's claim that "mormonism is off the table for the Obama campaign" hilarious...
We are in for a religious war in the press with Obama on one side and the multi-billion-dollar mormon church on the other.
For an example of the mormon propaganda being spread, click here Mormons and Demons
This is a 4400-word apologetic screed with a misleading title that is nothing but a Romney boosting essay, with hits on Huckabee, Protestants and Catholics and praise for Mitt..."All of this religiosity is going to be used against him in the coming months by people who would like to knock religion down a pegespecially his own form of wonderbread, patriarchal, particularly American religion. The politically expedient course would have been for Romney to practice his Mormonism sparingly. Yet he wouldnt have made it this far without it, and he has in the past been honest enough to admit this."
Put the American Spectator in the RINO column for this "mess of pottage".
