    There is room for a wide variety of people within the Mormon religion. I would hope the same thing is true for the republican and democrat parties. He appears to be a basically good person with high moral and ethical values. I wish him the best in his political career.

    One of the best articles I've read in a long time. I would vote for Huntsman over Obama in a minute, but there are very few Americans who would not receive my vote against our current leftist leader, the man who demands compromise but seldom practices what he preaches. Still, I think Huntsman was taking the chicken way out when asked about his religion. And I do not respect him for signing the western governor's accord over man-caused global warming, which I consider to be junk science. And I dare say that I have read more pro and con over global warming than probably 99 percent of our citizenry.

    The issue for me isn't his faithfulness or religious purity....it's the fact that he wasn't exactly forthcoming with these attitudes when he was trying to get elected in Utah.

    Today's Political purists tend to also be Religous purists.

    2,000 years ago, they were called Pharisees.

    Nice column, Rachel Esplin Odell. I am glad someone is willing to point out that not everyone needs to follow lockstep in a religion. Those criticizing Huntsman for not toeing the line of fervent testimony-bearing are no better than the Evangelical Christians who vehemently oppose any Mormon being elected as President. Different sides of the same dirty coin.
