I’ll be honest: it’s taken me awhile to process the prospect of a Mormon president, and it hasn’t been an easy road. Thus, I think I understand people who haven’t yet come to grips with the idea. But this is ridiculous.

Black Clergy and other concerned Christians ask Governor Mitt Romney to renounce his racist religion

On Monday, March 12, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Rev. O’Neal Dozier and a group of concerned Clergy and other Christians will hold a News/Press Conference to publicly ask Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney to openly renounce his racist Mormon Religion.

The purpose of this request is to foster and maintain good race relations here in America.

Jim Geraghty at National Review asks,

What about fostering and maintaining good religious relations in America?

The release lists verses in the Book of Mormon they deem racist and the Mormon practice of baptizing the dead of other faiths.

You can find those verses objectionable. Of course, there are plenty of other verses of the Bible, Torah, and Koran that other Americans find objectionable. You can find the practice of baptizing the dead objectionable (I certainly do). But there are plenty of other practices of other faiths that other Americans find objectionable. Declaring “God d*** America” comes to mind.

Has any other presidential candidate been greeted with religious leaders demanding he renounce his faith? In the name of national tolerance and harmony?
