Romney's Bigotry

More

Well, well, well. It's good to see that there's some bigotry Hugh Hewitt won't be a shill for. He has five posts on Al Sharpton's bigotry toward Romney. I agree that Sharpton's tone and remarks were bigoted; I certainly defend the right of Mormons to run for any public office without their faith being used against them. But then I haven't made religious faith a central tenet of my conservatism, unlike Hewitt and Romney. And Romney, for his part, has gone further in bigotry than Sharpton. Romney has stated that "we need to have a person of faith lead the country." Atheists, in other words, should not apply. How is that different from Sharpton exactly? Or is bigotry only bigotry when it's directed at people who have faith and not bigotry when it's directed at atheists? Somehow, I don't think Hewitt will address that point.
