People can rationalize walking on water or the night flight by saying that the stories were written a long time ago and were meant to communicate ideas rather than to be interpreted literally. (Of course some people insist on literal interpretation anyway). But you really can't fall back on that argument for Joseph Smith or L. Ron Hubbard. Those guys were recent enough that their cons are well documented.

And yet we have a candidate for President of the US who believes the charlatan. It was only months ago a major fundamentalist Christian leader (Jeffers) called Mormonism a cult. Anyone who knows fundamentalist and evangelical Christians knows they are very anti-cult, anti-other religions. Significantly so. They believe you are going to hEll unless you believe their version of Christianity. Yet inexplicably Jeffers said he would vote for Romney because anyone is better than Obama. The hate for Obama knows no bounds.
