Lapdog Media: Evangelical Christians are damned (literally) if they reject Romney the Mormon, and are damned (literally) if they support Romney the Mormon

As Newsbusters correctly points out, not too long ago, the common wisdom among the lapdog media was that, as one of those weirdo pseudo-Christian Mormons, Mitt Romney would be unable to secure the all-important votes of conservative Evangelical Christian Republicans, because they would be too bigoted to accept someone of another faith, such as Romney's unapologetic embrace of Mormonism.

Now that it is evident that these Evangelical Christian voters are not the bigots that the lapdog media painted them to be, and are overwhelmingly supporting Mitt Romney over Barack Obama in Tuesday's election, we now have Stephen Prothero, a religion blogger from CNN, telling us that Evangelical Christians are now sellouts who are abandoning their faith by supporting Mitt Romney for President.

These people are reaching, aren't they folks?

Are you old enough to remember (or did you history studies inform you about) the official position of the Democratic party with respect to religion and the presidency in the late 1950s?

There was a lot of ink spilled on the issue.
