Sarah Palin “respects” Rick Santorum because of his religion

Why is it okay for Palin, and pretty much every other GOP leader, to judge their candidates by their religion and religious views (which is the same thing), but it’s not okay to also judge Mitt Romney by his religion?  The GOP can’t have it both ways.  You can’t say it’s okay to judge Rick Santorum by his Christian fundamentalism but not okay to judge Mitt Romney by his Mormonism?   Why is one religion a litmus test and the other off-limits?  Now, a Democrat might argue that both should be off limits.  But that’s now how the GOP sees it.
