Georgia State Rep. Judy Manning Scared of Romney's Mormon Faith, But Says "It’s Better Than a Muslim"

The Marietta Daily Journal reported on the obstacles that Mitt Romney, who is a Mormon, may have to overcome in the Republican party's social conservative wing.

The Journal quotes Republican state Rep. Judy Manning (pictured in the middle) as saying: “I think Mitt Romney is a nice man, but I’m afraid of his Mormon faith. It’s better than a Muslim. Of course, every time you look at the TV these days you find an ad on there telling us how normal they are."

"So why do they have to put ads on the TV just to convince us that they’re normal if they are normal? … If the Mormon faith adhered to a past philosophy of pluralism, multi-wives, that doesn’t follow the Christian faith of one man and one woman, and that concerns me."
