Ridiculing Religion the Andrew Sullivan Way

Andrew Sullivan (photo at left) is a well-known pundit. Recently he has taken after Mitt Romney, probably because Romney has been an ardent advocate of preventing the courts from imposing gay marriage on the country. To Sullivan, it seems, a politician's stand on gay marriage trumps all other aspects of the candidate's existence.

Lately Sullivan has become very prolific in his attacks on Romney and his Mormon religion, and at Article 6 Blog today we try to put together some thoughts and links on that subject. It's hard to keep up with Sullivan, but we'll make an effort.

The best summary of all this comes from Ann Althouse:
"The attack on Romney is different. This is an attempt to weaken him by saying he is a member of a particular group and laying out the reasons why people should feel revulsion toward that group. That is a terrible, terrible thing."
Kind of hard to disagree with that, isn't it?

I recall when the p...k scammed everyone by asking people to donate to his blog so he could keep it going, then promptly went on holiday. Why is anyone listening to him. Is it the accent?
