Giving and receiving as well as having and sharing

There is an opinion piece today on Time.com by Justin A. Frank. Justin's opinion is that Romney is a liar and that is rooted in his Mormon faith. "There is a long tradition in the Mormon belief system in which evidence takes second place to faith."

My objection is not with the allegation that Romney lies. It is not even with the suggestion that this behaviour is rooted in his faith.

My objection is with thumping one's nose at Mormonism. What is often unsaid is the contrast with Christianity which is supposedly rooted in evidence and truth.

People, Christianity has a murky origin and a bloody and violent past. It is not all about giving and receiving as well as having and sharing!

Justin, aren't thou pointing to the speck that is in thy brother's eye?
