I’m several days late on this — but it’s another take on Mitt Romney’s religion speech.
Lawrence O’Donnell — the pundit/actor who is not a Mormon but who plays one on HBO’s “Big Love,” goes off on Romney’s attempt to address the issue. (He elaborates in this Huffington Post column).
The church in 1978 lifted its ban on African Americans joining the priesthood. Romney appeared on “Meet the Press” today and his eyes filled with tears when talking about the church’s discrimination against African Americans. “I was anxious to see a change in my church,” he said.
“My view is that there’s no discrimination in the eyes of God. And I
could not have been more pleased than to see the change that occurred.”
