Sunday thinking

Many evangelicals have numerous reasons, other than religion, for objecting to Mr. Romney. But to understand just how hard it is for some to coalesce around his candidacy, it is important to understand the gravity of their theological qualms.

From that Times article on religion

Why evangelical bigots will never embrace Mormon bigots:

Mormons tend to explain the doctrinal differences more gently. Lane Williams, a Mormon and a professor of communications at Brigham Young University-Idaho, a Mormon institution, said the way he understands it, “it’s not a ‘we’re right and they’re wrong’ kind of approach. But it’s as though we feel we have a broader circle of truth.

Translation: You're not wrong, but we have a "broader circle of truth" than you. So even though you're not wrong, we're more right.

Funny stuff.

Banks backing Romney?

I wonder how this will go down with all those good Christians with all that money in Bank of America and Wells Fargo. I guess it just goes to show that The Almighty Dollar trumps The Almighty God here in the land of greed.

The country's biggest banks are overwhelmingly supporting Mitt Romney's bid for the Republican presidential nomination, a Charlotte Observer analysis of federal campaign contributions shows.

Employees at the five largest U.S. banks by assets, including Bank of America Corp. and Wells Fargo & Co., gave Romney about $600,000 through the first three quarters of 2011, according to the most recent filings available from the Federal Election Commission.

I guess that's what happens when you cultivate anti-intellectualism.

Just to clarify,

I'm the one that was dumb enough to get sucked into self-publishing. James has a real contract with a real publisher.

rats, I kinda like Huntsman.

Hopefully he will stick around a while so as to pull the R's back to reality. Sad thing is now Mitt looks like the sane one of the bunch.

I've heard that Huntsman knew he couldn't win this but

is positioning himself for a run in 2016. I thought he had some ideas worth exploring. And, I think one has to be pretty smart and dedicated to learn to speak chinese.
