It's a tricky business - Romney's Mormonism and that Church's racist history. We know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was not a force for civil rights, and is generally conservative and white. There have been liberals who came out of that Church - like Mitt Romney's father George who was a liberal Republican in the days when that was not a contradiction in terms. Mitt was a missionary before the Church dropped its racial barrier to the ministry. But Andrew Sullivan has an interesting look at the issue. - GWC
