re: Romney’s Speech on Thursday


The history of Mormonism in America is a story of social and political success, for Mormons and non-Mormons alike. From the grimmest beginnings–the lynching of Joseph Smith, the Mountain Meadows massacre–orthodox Mormons have been ordinary decent citizens for over a century, and other Americans have recognized as much. I hope Romney instructs the ignorant, and holds the bigots, right and left, to shame.
