Should Republicans mock Obama & his Christianity when their Candidate is LDS Bishop?

The NATIONAL CATHEDRAL (dot-org) published a kind of shared forum for the GOP candidate and for the incumbent President -- here's one question also covered in "The Caucus" Both men have been subjected to derision and deep misunderstanding about their religion: Mr. Romney’s church has been called a non-Christian cult; Mr. Obama has been called a closet Muslim. Both men are asked how they respond to those who “question the sincerity of your faith and your Christianity.” Mr. Obama says, “You know, there’s not much I can do about it. I have a job to do as president, and that does not involve convincing folks that my faith in Jesus is legitimate and real.” Mr. Romney emphasizes the commonalities between Mormonism and mainstream Christianity, saying he believes that Jesus Christ is the son of God and the savior of humanity. Then in a nod to his church’s distinctiveness, he wrote: “Every religion has its own unique doctrines and history. These should not be bases for criticism but rather a test of our tolerance.” _______________________________________________________________________________________ 10 points for your reaction and interpretation -- here's the URL for the blog entry (Aug. 21, 2012) http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/08/21/obama-and-romney-discuss-role-of-faith-in-their-lives/?nl=us&emc=politicsemailema5_20120821

Republicans have an "uneasy alliance" with Mormon officials -- this is already coming to the fore as the Romney candidacy is emerging as a possible alternative to run the entire Federal government how will the GOP convention come together? no one knows and how its self-unease will manifest

Nobody should be "mocked" for their religious beliefs, especially when they're being mocked for a religion they don't even belong to! But that seems to be the Republican way of doing things in the 21st Century.

this crap is why religion has no place in politics just as the scripture says.

I think the 2 leaders should have reminded us that the USA was founded on the principle that there would be no state religion. Therefore, they should have said, it does not matter what (if any) religious views an American president holds. I feel that Obama's answer was far superior to his opponent's.

I generally vote Rep, but because the only facts that are there to learn is that Obama is a professed Christian and Romney, despite what he says, is not a Christian. Mormonism is not Christian. And if I had to choose btwn the two candidates, it would be Obama. A Christian President means more to me than any promise the... More

is Mormon theology Protestant or "other"? is it a sect? is it a 19th century holdover?

I cannot say if Obama is a born-again Christian, or just a cultural christian; nor can I say if he is or is not a Muslim. I do believe, however, that he is heavily influenced by Islam.
