Jonah encounters the evangelical base; and it thinks like this:

Speaking for myself, there is no policy that I think a Mormon would pursue that I find objectionable. I will not vote for a Mormon because they claim to be Christian, when they are not Christians.

With the usual caveat, of course:

I don't think I'm a bigot.

Who ever does?
