Is Romney's Mormon faith still 'taboo' in this 2012 presidential election?

Fifty-two years after John F. Kennedy broke a barrier by becoming the first non-protestant president, Mitt Romney's Mormonism is proving to be a thorny issue, in part, because we don't know how to talk about it, honestly, thoughtfully and respectfully.
