As a Mormon I have heard the types of arguments put forth here as to reasons why people should not vote for Mormons. Mike Huckabee,, in the 2008 Presidential primaries, made some allusions to these arguments. He is an Evangelical, like the person referenced in this article, and if you ask many LDS people, think he is an anti-Mormon bigot (I happen to believe this--Huckabee used some very strong anti-Mormon code words when he was running in '08).
The following is a link to an article in the Washington Post, written by Michael Otterson, Official spokesperson for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Rather than try to put some original thoughts down on in my blog, I will just give you the reference and say, I agree with this article 100%.
I will add that I personally have not made a decision about who I will vote for in the next election. I personally like Mitt Romeny, but there are several other candidates that I like as well including Herman Cain. When it gets closer to the primaries, I will make my decision.
Let me also say, that there is no way in H#@! I would ever vote for Harry Reid if he were my Senator. It does not matter that he and I share the same religion. That is about the only common belief we share.
