What Anti-Mormonism Is and Isn't
Joanna Brooks, Religion Dispatches
Yesterday at The Daily Beast, Peter Beinart made the bold claim that “Democrats have [a] bigger anti-Mormon problem” than Republicans in 2012. Bold, but sloppy, I’m afraid.
To be fair, Beinart’s intention was to urge liberals (as the focus turns from the GOP primaries to the general election) to be as cautious about indulging anti-Mormon sentiment as they would have liked conservatives to have been about indulging racism.
