Being politically incorrect... and explaining Mitt's flip-flops

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) has an "open scripture". This means that the Church President can - and does - receive God's word, today, and is free to change Church doctrine in response to these revelations.

Till 1978 the LDS Church held that blacks were inferior to whites - a status determined by God Almighty.
The Church's President then had a revelation.
"Oops - sorry! Blacks are equal before God!"

I suspect this attitude towards DOCTRINE goes a long way to explaining Mitt's pliability regarding just about everything.
No belief is carved in stone, no position is absolute...
... He could have a revelation tomorrow.

[I'm betting that some future Mormon prophet will have a revelation that, in fact, gay marriage is just hunky-dory!]
