Mitt gave money to BYU!:
Hold the presses! Mitt Romney, a Mormon, once made a large donation to the premier Mormon university in America, Brigham Young University! But wait. This isn’t a joke. This is an actual story
in the Globe this morning, making a big deal of Romney’s donation to the school and BYU’s antigay policies. OK, if this isn’t dragging Mitt’s religion into the campaign, then I don’t know what constitutes dragging his religion into the campaign. But think of it this way: Can’t the exact same complaint about the Romney donation/BYU-gay-policy be made about Catholic politicians who make weekly donations to their church -- not to mention to Boston College or Holy Cross etc. -- despite the church’s ludicrous stands on homosexuality, women, alter boys, birth control etc.? Isn’t BC now embroiled in a dispute over its refusal to officially recognize gay and lesbian groups on campus? Isn’t that refusal tied to the school’s Catholic heritage and the church’s teachings on homosexuality? But, no, Mitt and Mormons won’t get the same consideration. Of course they won’t. There’s a blatant double-standard working here.
