What does someone who goes by the handle “Godwhacker” know about religious tolerance? Everything. I tolerate all y'all's screwy religions. Oh I love Judaism, bagels and lox YUM! But it loses me at circumcision. Come on folks, that's there for a reason! Crucifictions, stonings, virgin births, I whack it all back at 'em.
But it has recently come to my attention that some people are unwilling to vote for Mitt Romney because of his Mormon beliefs.
