A question for Harry Reid regarding Mormonism

From Fox News online, comments from a disgusting interview with Harry Reid see the light of day:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lashed out at Mitt Romney’s faith during a conference call with reporters, saying he is “not the face of Mormonism” and suggesting he has tarnished the religion.

Reid, a Democrat and the highest-ranking Mormon in U.S. elected office, also said he agrees with claims that Romney has “sullied” the Latter-day Saints faith.

I have a question for Senator Reid. Given this information from the Mormon Church regarding a “procedure” near and dear to the heart of Democrats, who do you think has “sullied” the religion?

In 1973, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding abortion, which is still applicable today:

“The Church opposes abortion and counsels its members not to submit to or perform an abortion except in the rare cases where, in the opinion of competent medical counsel, the life or good health of the mother is seriously endangered or where the pregnancy was caused by rape and produces serious emotional trauma in the mother. Even then it should be done only after counseling with the local presiding priesthood authority and after receiving divine confirmation through prayer.”

He knows the answer, and so do the rest of us. The only thing remaining is the answer to the question, “Have you no decency, sir? At long last, have you no decency?”

When it comes to Harry Reid, I think we all know the answer to that one too.
