Secular Liberal Anti-Mormon Bigotry
It’s well known that a fair number of conservative Christians think that the Mormon religion is a “cult,” and won’t vote for Mitt Romney.
But a fair number of liberals and leftists have rather extreme anti-Mormon biases too.
Case in point: liberal Lawrence O’Donnell, who in the video clip below lets it all “hang out” about his anti-Mormon bias.
Do people like O’Donnell pose a problem for Romney? Not where votes are concerned, since they wouldn’t vote for a religious candidate anyway.
Where media coverage is concerned, maybe. Mainstream media types are heavily secular and -- if not actually hostile to religion -- think religious belief is rather odd. And they think that Mormon religious belief is even odder. This is likely to affect the tone of the coverage.
