7. This is not about mocking Mormons.

If you saw Sister Simone Campbell the other night on MSNBC, she emphasized again and again that the people with whom she met were hardworking and struggling to keep their families together, and that she wanted Romney to see that.

I have a real problem with this practice on DU of tossing out the phrase "magic underwear" in connection with the LDS. If Mormons wear a particular garment as part of their observance, I don't see it as helping the progressive cause to sneer about that, any more than I'd want someone to mock a Franciscan for putting on the habit or a Jewish man for wearing a yarmulke or a Sikh his turban.
