This morning, E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post writes:
Perhaps because I am Catholic and liberal, I find myself drawn to a defense of Romney’s faith. Mormons are facing prejudices similar to those that Catholics and Jews have confronted, and it is, if I may use the term, anti-American to have religious tests of any kind for public office.
The odd thing is that Romney may find that the liberals he routinely bashes on the campaign trail are his best allies when it comes to combating religious prejudice — and liberals should feel obligated to stand up for the political rights of Mormons, including Romney.
Does he read his own newspaper? See David’s post from May.
