The Book of Mormon, "Prophet" Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were great racists, and Mitt Romney still believes that their teachings infected with Bigotry and Hate are the "Word of God".

HOWARD, Wis. -- A tense moment transpired during a town hall hosted by Mitt Romney today in Wisconsin when an audience member began reading verses from the Book of Mormon and questioned Romney on his stance on interracial relationships.
When a man's hand shot up in the air to ask a question, Romney seemed to take note that he was holding papers, typically a sign that the questioner has a long-winded question they've chosen to write out, and as the man began to speak remarked, "I know where this is going. Ha. Ha. Ha."
"Your Mormon faith might not be a concern in the election but I think it might be as well as I found these verses in the Mormon book," said 28-year-old Bret Hatch, as the microphone turned on.
As Hatch trialed off, Romney interjected: "Why don't you give me a question?"
"Ok, well, in the Mormon book it says there were a blackness came upon all the children of Canaan that they were despised," Hatch continued.
"I'm sorry we're just not going to have a discussion about religion in my view, but if you have a question, I'll be happy to answer your question," Romney said.
"I guess my question is do you believe it's a sin for a white man to marry and procreate with a black?" asked Hatch.
"No," Romney responded sternly, before turning to face the other side of the room.
"Next question," said Romney.
While Romney shot down the discussion of religion at the time, just moments later when asked how he'd respond to being characterized as "out of touch," Romney volunteered a story about the time he served as a pastor for his church.
