Atsilvers27, my objection to Romney had nothing to do with his religion, it was his policies and also that he flip-flopped so many times it was difficult to trust what he said after a while. I agree with you that some people made unfair comments about Romney because of his Mormonism. On the other hand, some people never got over castigating Obama for being a Muslim, even though he is not! Imagine if someone was actually a Muslim, how much grief they would have to take! Too many people equate all Muslims with being radical jihadists, or all Mormons as being like the FLDS with many wives, even today. There is a lot of ignorance out there about religion (and other things, of course) to be sure. I'm waiting for a gay athiest president now, ha ha ha. Really, I'm just glad it's all over!
BTW, Tammy -- Roseann Barr is a very liberal progressive person, so I suppose you should be glad she didn't win. :-)
