The Cartoon Mitt Romney Doesn’t Want You To See [VIDEO]

I don't know enough about Mormon theology to know if this bit of propaganda is accurate or not (I know more about the people and the movement than what they worship) but it's clear distinction from mainstream Christianity and the fact that it's got over 500,000 views on YouTube can't help someone like Mitt Romney.

Perhaps if the mainstream press and the right would have been even remotely in opposition to the attacks on John Kerry's faith in 2004 I would be a bit more sympathetic about people asking Romney about his church's practices.
