What Guy Benson Calls a “scandal”, Mormons see as Living Their Religion A past President of Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion, Gordon B.

Those are very unchristian like attitudes for sure.

Oh, and Guy Benson didn't call it a scandal. He mercilessly derided those who *did* call it a scandal.

Outrage!  Or something!  Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has "stepped on a landmine" by having the temerity to appoint -- I hope you're sitting down -- an openly gay national security spokesman, according to one leader of a social conservative group.  Once you've pried yourself from the floor, feel free to persuse some choice excerpts from this person's incensed column:
