A Request for an Analysis of Governor Romney's Beliefs

Daniel,

Your audience might appreciate a similar analysis of the changes and ambiguities in Mitt Romney's statements of his beliefs over time. This is of special interest as the Mormon religion has a concept of strategic lying that is acceptable, even encouraged in advancing the the interests of the faith (somewhat analogous to the Islamic concept of taquia).

Thank you,

-As an aside, Mormonism presents a revision of Christianity that is in some respects, even more radical than the Islamic revision of earlier Abrahamic forms, albeit a revision that was gestated in upstate New York rather than the Arabian Peninsula.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I study Islam, not Mormonism, so this is not a topic for me, if it is indeed a topic at all.
