Interesting Read . . . maybe goes a little far.

Remember the LA Times/Bloomberg poll about 37% not wanting a Mormon POTUS? I picked a lot of that apart in a previous blog entry. Bruce Wilson wrote an opinion piece "Mitt Romney's faith is an asset for 2008 race" about that same topic and we make many of the same points.

No, this poll isn't about Mormon theology. It's about the political views held by the vast majority of Mormons. And that's actually very good news for Romney.

Many of his points thereafter hold water but I still think it's going a little far to say that "Romney's Faith" will be more of an asset than a liability. We just don't know that yet . . . but Bruce may be right in the long run.
