I guess. I might at least be interested in how the person reconciles the two.

And aren't there limits?

Suppose someone is a member of Christian Identity or Fred Phelps' outfit. At the very least one would want to know how they reconcile their public policies with the official Christian Identity belief that WASPs are God's chosen people.

In short, as I said elsewhere, the LDS has made great strides in terms of race. And I don't think it's an issue WRT Romney or Huntsman. BUT, if someone else, for whom race is an issue, wanted to know why they were voluntarily members of a church, in adulthood, whose official policy was the Black people should be limited in status within the church because they bore the mark and curse of Cain, I don't think it's an unfair question to ask.
