Yep, it seems the lib bashers of Romney forgot about that minor detail of one of the largest and wackiest churches in history. One that burned 'witches' (women) at the stake - usually those who were widowed with assets the church elders coveted...... yepper, that Catholic church.

Actually, all the "lib bashers of Romney" I know of are equal opportunity religion bashers. Most of the people I see bashing particularly on Mormonism (rather than on Romney in general) are conservatives. When I see libs bashing on Romney, it's 80% about his inconsistency, and 18% about his foot-in-mouth disease.

Though the fact that the burning-at-the-stake part hasn't happened in a few hundred years, while the holes-in-the-magic-underwear part is still happening today, seems justification for considering *current* practitioners or Mormonism to be more odd than *current* practitioners of Catholisicm.
