The passing of American hero Neil Armstrong would seem to be the sort of event that would transcend politics. Instead, some are using Mitt Romney’s brief tribute as a means of attacking the candidate for his religion.

Along with several others, Samuel Cook III, a coordinator for Obama for America – Louisiana, decided to take the low road of religious bigotry.

It would be helpful to hear OFA’s official position on religious bigotry, if this is the position its coordinators choose to take publicly.

So, Cook stands by his statements (and by whatever it is he considers a sense of humor). Will Obama for America stand by Cook?
