The Mark Of Cain

Clinton would have left Obama's church

By CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer 26 minutes ago

GREENSBURG, Pa. - Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she would have left the church that Barack Obama attends if her minister had talked about America the way Obama's pastor has.


I don't remember anyone asking former Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney why he remained in the Church of Latter Day Saints despite its ban on blacks, who were thought to bear "the mark of Cain".

He recalled what an emotional moment it was for him when the church ruled in 1978 to accept them into the fold.

When he heard the news on his car radio, he said, he began to cry, and had to pull off the road.

Interesting. Romney was thirty years old at the time. That means he'd had a dozen years to wrestle with his conscience. He could remain in a racially segregated church or he could walk away.
He chose to stay.
