Who are the bigots going to vote for this year? On one hand they'll have a black (oh no!) Christian they accuse of being Muslim (terrorist!), on the other, they'll have a (*gasp*) Mormon, which apparently the Southern Baptists are still teaching is a cult (tools of Satan!). It's such a horrible thing to be, that students at Jerry Falwell's university are protesting that he's having Romney speak it graduation this year.
I guess this must be a pretty complex issue for people who are into pigeonholing and hate - when you are racist and/or someone who hates everyone who isn't a Protestant, who do you vote for this year?Answer Question

Good Lord. And in that last sentence, when I said 'what so many of us do', I was not claiming to be a bigot (although I've been called that and worse in this forum in the past). I was thinking about the people that I know that are very conservative and weren't in favor of a Romney ticket being disappointed that he will likely be the candidate, they don't want to vote for him but he is a small improvement from Obama for a conservative voter.
Okay, enough with over-explaining myself. I'm going to bed.

Which bigots? They come in all flavors. I would guess that each bigot will vote for whomever they are bigoted against.

Ahh, never mind. I guess you are talking about the one's from the Christian college or whatever is linked in the original post. Forgive my laziness, it's late and I am tired.
I guess they will do what so many of us do. Vote for who they think is the less shitty candidate.
