Religion is in the news as we head into this Easter weekend. During speeches he gave on Tuesday and Wednesday, Senator Orrin Hatch said that he expects the Obama campaign to attack Mormonism during the upcoming Presidential race. Ann Coulter has predicted the same thing in recent weeks.
I think Hatch is completely wrong. I’ll be shocked if anyone in the Obama camp makes any kind of public statement mocking anyone’s religion. Members of the administration may talk that way privately, but they’ll never expose those attitudes to the American mainstream.
