Here's the story. As much as I like Hitchens and dislike Sharpton (even moreso now), I agree with Sharpton's argument as far as the existense of God. Basically, you can't prove or disprove God with logic, rather you just know His existence with experience.
Then, the reverend, takes a jab at Romney's Mormonism, implying Mormon's do not believe in God.
As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation.Funny, Sharpton targets a minority and claims they are something they are not, just after he demands the firing of Imus for calling people of a minority something they are not.
As a Mormon, I'm not offended by what Sharpton said about Mormonism, a lot of people say it. A lot of people say ignorant things, but I'm more offended by Sharpton's ignorance and hypocrisy while he takes on de facto representation of believers in a debate against an atheist. And I'd bet dollars to donuts that Hitchens has reflected a more Christian lifestyle than Sharpton has in recent years.
