The Mormon Church Responds

A press release from the Mormon Church on Friday reads:

"People of faith have been intimidated for simply exercising their democratic rights… These are not actions that are worthy of the democratic ideals of our nation. The end of a free and fair election should not be the beginning of a hostile response in America."

They're quite right that they, as people of faith, are free to exercise their democratic rights.  But the so called "hostile response" that they now face — the protests, boycotts, etc. — is equally apart of those democratic ideals as well.  People of faith don't get a free pass in the political arena merely because they are people of faith.

Welcome to the political fray.  We play hardball here.
