Why is Romney calling Trump racist when his religion is racist?

Original post made by Atheist, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jun 11, 2016

Mitt Romney's religion only allows whites to reach its highest point in their religion and most of his religion are white. Can someone enlighten me on how he can call Trump a racist when Trump hires all races and respects the best of all ethnicities if they are contributing positively to society? Not only, I know a lot of religious people of all religions who are racist and judgmental, when their religions preach to accept everyone.

Is this an issue of politics again? Just say what sounds right, not what you really think. I think Mitt is just having a tantrum since Trump insulted him for losing his presidential nominations.

I am not a Trump supporter, nor a Clinton supporter (I supported Mitt previously but am now disappointed), but these politicians and religions are hypocritical; they say what sounds good, but think and do otherwise.

Trump is flouting the cardinal command of post-Southern-Strategy Republicanism: You're not supposed to say those things Out Loud, and he's succeeding spectacularly.

At long last the Republican Base has a leader up there who speaks the Party line plainly, disdaining Romney-esque PC dodges like "the 47%." Everybody knew who Romney was coyly referring to, but Trump says it Out Loud. And the establishment cringes.
