Liberal Tolerance, Respect Diversity, As Long As I Agree With It

Originally heard on the Michael Medved show. University of Washington Professor David Barash in today's Seattle Times says we need more bigotry towards religious presidential candidates.
Indeed, here is a controversial suggestion: It is high time for the electorate to reject a devout Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, evangelical Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Shintoist, Wiccan or committed practitioner of any other faith or creed. Our problem isn't too much prejudice against devoutly religious presidential candidates (e.g., Romney), but not enough. Let's reject any religiously orthodox candidate for high office.
I am going to guess Professor Barash would actively fight any bigotry towards pre-op transsexuals kindergarten teachers. Just a guess.
