The Mormon Mitt

There's some recurring chatter on The Corner today regarding Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and whether his status as a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints will hurt his chances of ever becoming President.

K-Lo has posted a blurb about how Andrew Sullivan has derisively declared Romney to be a "Christianist" presidential candidate. This, of course, is Exhibit A that Andrew Sullivan, a self-identified Catholic, is a complete ignoramous when it comes to matters of religion. Read this article on Mormonism to find out why.

Personally, I don't care what Romney's religious affiliation is as far as his qualifications to be President are concerned. I suspect this is also true for many conservative Evangelicals like a friend of mine who once told me that she would feel more comfortable voting for a Morman man to be President than an Evangelical woman.

Update (11/22/06): Well, apparently Andrew doesn't think Mormons are Christians. What the heck does he mean by "Christianist" then?
