My Only Consolation.
Readers of this blog will know that I had origionally supported Fred Thompson for the Republican nomination. When he withdrew after the South Carolina primary, I was faced with the prospect of having a choice among candidates I could not feel enthusiastic about. Of the four remaining candidates, I felt that Mitt Romney was the most electable and the least likely to betray my trust . Apparently, most other Republicans disagreed. Now that Romney has made his exit from the race, when I consider who is left, I can only sob. My only consolation is that now that Romney is no longer in contention, there is no immediate danger of the Church being put under public pressure to legitimize Mormanism as another way to follow Christ. At least the pressure will be off for now.
