Mormon bishop critical of Democrat Harry Reid’s stances on abortion, gay marriage

A Mormon bishop in Los Angeles is under fire for his assertion that Sen. Harry Reid is unworthy to enter the faith’s temples because of his support of Democratic Party positions.

Mark Paredes, in a Wednesday blog titled “Good Riddance to Harry Reid, the Mormon Senate Leader,” expressed his belief that Democrats’ support of same-sex marriage, abortion rights and gambling runs contrary to church stances.

He called Reid an “embarrassment” who isn’t “a man of serious religious faith.”
