Don't be so sure that Romney has changed his attitudes since high school

The Sun May 12 editorial "Lesson of a high-school prank" concludes that "There's no evidence that [Mitt] Romneycurrently is either a bigot or a bully. If he is a changed man today, that is probably something the public would appreciate hearing about."

What the public also needs to hear about is the vigorous involvement of the Mormon Church (of which Mr. Romney has served as bishop) in promoting the anti-gay legislation in California known as Proposition 8 — to which effort the core members of one of Mr. Romney's PACs were major contributors. The boy is father to the man — and his adult friends.
