Not meaning to beat a dead Mormon horse,
..but now that Mitt is out of the way, I have no real desire or motive to discuss the Mormon issue any further. But if there are those of you who would like to read or discuss an excellent article that fills in a host of blanks concerning the Mormon religion, I will post this link. It brings out very well documented points and lesser details that are relevant to this subject and I will admit, there are a couple of items about science and linguistics concerning Mormonism that I didn't know. The comments that follow are just as full of interesting information as the article itself, so read the comments as well.
It's an excellent read that for me, rounds the subject out to a degree that I feel I'm ready to let it drift into the recesses of my long term memory.
One note: I am not, I repeat not advocating atheism or Richard Dawkins in sharing this link. I have no intention in that regard as that would probably be off topic for this group I would suppose. What is interesting to me is the information this article and the comments that follow introduce about the Mormon religion. No more, mo less.

1. With the demise of the Willard,
our nation will not see this type of candidate again. People finally figured this group out for what they are. Good riddance!

4. Thank you...
I'm not all that familiar with Mr. Krauss. Maybe I should do a little catch up. In a nutshell, why do you think he would create less of a stir?

5. He is much less of a lightning rod than Dawkins, imo.
Primarily because he really hasn't exhibited any hostility towards religionists, that I am aware of.

6. Could you give an example of Dawkins' "hostility towards religionists"...
followed by how you think he could have communicated the same idea without being so "hostile"?
