The Washington Post apparently feels it’s perfectly reasonable to hold Mitt Romney accountable for something that happened 150 years ago, while New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor uncovered the most ‘dangerous’ aspects of the Mormon faith. Her warning? Be afraid of Mitt Romney’s religion. Be very afraid.
Cue the spooky music...
Ok, not really.
What were some of her scary findings?
The NYT "reported":
Outside the spotlight, Mr. Romney can be demonstrative about his faith: belting out hymns (“What a Friend We Have in Jesus”) while horseback riding, fasting on designated days and finding a Mormon congregation to slip into on Sundays, no matter where he is.
He prays for divine guidance on business decisions and political races, say those who have joined him. Sometimes on the campaign trail, Mr. and Mrs. Romney retreat to a quiet corner, bow their heads, clasp hands and share a brief prayer, said Representative Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican who has traveled with them.
Yes dead reader - he prays on business decisions! The horror! THE HORROR!!!!!
How about this terrifying piece of information:
Or take Mr. Romney’s frequent tributes to American exceptionalism. “I refuse to believe that America is just another place on the map with a flag,” he said in announcing his bid for the presidency last June. Every presidential candidate highlights patriotism, but Mr. Romney’s is backed by the Mormon belief that the United States was chosen by God to play a special role in history, its Constitution divinely inspired.
Yes, Mitt Romney believes that God may actually have some kind of plan and America may just have a special part of it. dum Dum DUMMMMMMMMM!
Clearly, Mitt Romney, as a man of faith, is a fool for thinking that America, one of the most powerful and influential countries in the world, was somehow part of God's plan.

And on a totally unrelated note - stop asking questions about Jeremiah Wright. A candidate's religious background has no bearing when its rooted in radical black liberation theology, only when it's pro-American and involves regular prayer.
