I was interested to see this article about teh republican race for nomination for the US Presidency, hte most relevant bit is
“push-polling” calls drew attention to Romney’s deferment of military service during the Vietnam war while serving as a missionary for the Mormons in France and pointed out that none of his five sons had enlisted in the military.

Callers also claimed the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints did not consecrate blacks as bishops until the 1970s and believes the Book of Mormon supersedes the Bible. Romney called the attacks “unAmerican”.

Robert Redford, the film star, joined in the Mormon-bashing this month, claiming that church followers were “very adept at not being fazed and speaking fluently and gracefully” because they “learn how to deflect blows and stay on message” when they go on missions “when they are 19 or 20”.

so how is that wrong.He did defer and didn't serve, his kids are not in the military mormons did not allow blacks to receive the priesthood until 1978, and that *is* their opinion of the Book of Mormon.

So telling the truth is now suddenly unamerican
