"The Mormon Issue" getting plenty of "pub"

"The Mormon Issue" seems to be the Romney topic de jour for the past few days. Time coverage here.

The Dallas Morning News published an abreviated version of Molly Worthen's New Republic essay (subscription required for entire essay).

Also, Slate has a piece that has this quippy but controversial paragraphy:

The best intellectual argument Romney could use isn't available to him, which is that all religions have their odd traditions and beliefs that look highly quirky under close examination. Romney could use my Catholic Church as an example, but in doing so, he'd risk alienating another key constituency. Imagine what fun he could have had with the Charismatics, some of whom speak in tongues or drink snake venom.
