Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins on Sunday asked how anyone could vote for a “massively gullible fool” like Mitt Romney who could not see that Mormonism’s founder was a “fraud.”
“No matter how much you agree with Romney’s economic policy, can you really vote for such a massively gullible fool?” Dawkins asked. “He is a Mormon BISHOP!”
“Bible & Koran genuinely old, written in the language of their time. Book of Mormon written by 19thC charlatan. Romney too stupid to see it,” he continued, snarking, “And it came to pass that the lot was cast for Mitt and Mitt did verily reign in the land and there was rejoicing in the corridors of Mammon.”
According to The Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan, Mormons differ from most Christians in that they see no conflict in serving God and mammon — or material wealth that many mainstream believers view as diminishing religion.
“Could you really vote for a man who thinks the Garden of Eden was in Missouri?” he asked again three hours after the tirade began.
