When Jane Pitt wrote her humble response to another reader’s letter to the editor of the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri urging fellow Christians to look beyond Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith and focus instead on the man’s abilities and values, little did she know that she would be deluged with death threats and vile comments.
