    I couldn't disagree more with the thesis of this article. The world now knows that Mormon politicians are just as truth-challenged and willing to stoop to anything to be elected as non-Mormon politicians. As a Mormon, I don't feel like celebrating that.

    You are kidding yourself. Many Mormon's were in fact seeing this as a "first". Mostly because, it was a first! Romney lost, and now you're trying to play the nonchalant loser who was always more invested in the "bigger picture" as though having a Mormon President wouldn't have been some kind of validation for Mormons. It would have been validation, plain and simple. You know this. I know this. Anybody who know's anything about the issue knows this.

    The good for you ought to be what the rest of the press is reporting (you did claim to read the press on Mormonism afterall?). That is, Mormonism was validated by the campaign, and Romney's loss was Mormonism's win. There is probably truth to that, which makes your article very strange.
