No one was advocating stoning HIM (oh, wait someone was) -- but that's the standard biblical "punishment" for simply being a woman in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's the type that might seem to be okay with bring that back. The stoning suggestion simply follows that logic in reverse.

So what? Romney says that he disagrees with the guy, and that should be enough. I don't see any reason why he should be expected to completely shun and ignore someone over one difference of opinion.
Oh, come on, Casey. If the single difference of opinion you and someone had was that rape pregnancy was a "gift from God to the woman" ... you'd still go to lunch with them?

I have members of my family I don't speak to any more because of their racist statements. That's just a "difference of opinion" on one topic, too.
