Do you not remember the wall-to-wall coverage Reverend Wright received? Do you not remember the special press events Wright himself held?

To pretend like that was swept under the rug is a crazy stretch on your behalf.

I don't see how this is all that much different than JFK becoming the first Catholic elected...
Maybe they do think of them as moral, but that doesn't mean they're electable. Romney was getting hammered in his own party's primaries in 2008 for his religion.

I don't think anybody was claiming he was a bad guy. Romney is, at least in his personal life, a good, family guy. They were just straight up spooked by his beliefs.

And it's hilarious you brought up JFK, considering he had to overcome people's fears of Catholicism like Romney would theoretically have to overcome fears of Mormonism.

What did JFK do to quell people's fears? He spoke openly and repeatedly about his faith and assure people he wouldn't be taking orders from the Pope.
