Will Mormonism Matter

Robin Abcarian at the LA Times asks if and how evangelical Christians will warm to the candidacies of the two Mormon candidates for the GOP presidential nod, Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman.

Catholics, of course, faced the obnoxious, residual religious bigotry in the presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy, and we must raise our voices clearly and powerfully against any attempts to deny Mr. Romney or Mr. Huntsman their right to be president on account of their faith. Besides, there are plenty of other good reasons to oppose them.
