A Defense of Mormonism from an Atheist's Perspective
There is no chance I will vote Romney in November, but I do take exception when his critics, particularly some of the more outspoken Christian leaders, refer to his religion as a cult.
From an atheist's point of view, a Mormon is no more cultish than a Roman Catholic. Or a Baptist. Or a Presbyterian. Or a Jew. Or a Muslim. Or a Scientologist. Or a Branch Davidian. Honestly, is the Book of Mormon really that far fetched? What's another testament or two when you've already bought into the virgin birth? I know many of these denominations have the benefit time on their side, but they all seem equally made up to me.
So believe what you like and I'll believe what I like and we'll all let Romney believe what he likes, because that's how it's supposed to go around here, isn't it?
