Romney, religion-talk, take #2

Some people just don't pay attention when they read my blog.  Let me repeat.  It is not bigotry to say that, in a yes-or-no situation, Mormons are not Christian -- unless you consider "not Christian" to be a slur.  The issue is that Mormonism is a variant form of Christianity that many would place outside of the mainstream, because Mormons claim a definitive revelation after Christ.  It is reasonable to observe that fact ("a variant form of Christianity") -- unless all your other observations are generally ugly, in which case, yes, "not Christian" IS probably just more of your usual bigotry.

Deep sigh.
