    and Weisel's right to articulate it.  The last part, about depriving Jews and others of their heritage, simply goes further than I'm willing to go, as to either intent or effect.  It's not a matter of disagreeing with what you say but instead agreeing too weakly to form the motivation for action.  It should matter more to the LDS establishment than it does, however, that the practice is so offensive to so many people.  

    Ironically, by trying to shut down any debate of posthumous baptism, Barbour more than anyone has tied Romney to his faith.  What he doesnt see is that if Mormonism isn't a sword with which to attack Romney's candidacy, Romney's candidacy is also not a shield with which to defend specific acts and practices from legitimate criticism.
