Where's the Outrage, Evangelicals?

In any case, I'm not going to belabor these issues, since as I mentioned, I'm not religious, nor am I a defender of WASP culture. I value diversity and I want more of it. All I want to point out with this post, though, is that the groups in American politics who are generally most intolerant of difference (especially where it intersects with their religion) seem to have suddenly gone quiet, despite the massive theological differences of the Latter Day Saints. Can someone out there please explain why gay Romney wouldn't be ok, while Mormon Romney is?
Update (10/19): I think I spoke too soon. Be outraged, evangelicals! - especially during the first week of November.
