On CNN, quoting the Bible makes you a 'religious fanatic

Reason #2,746 why I don't like to watch CNN...

Last week, former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke to the graduates of Southern Virginia University, a predominantly Mormon school located in Buena Vista, Va. In his remarks to the Class of 2013, Romney spoke of the importance of family and quoted the Bible -- Psalms 127 -- to emphasize his point:

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth.

Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

On Thursday, Piers Morgan and guests scoffed at Romney's touching remarks.  The LA Times' Maeve Reston criticized him for being "very much into his marriage and his 'quiver of kids,'" and Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill labeled him a "religious fanatic." Meanwhile, Morgan giggled like a schoolgirl.
