Another Flip-Flipper From Massachusetts?

Somewhere over the past decade or so Matt Romney has done a 180 on the two core issues he's trying to run on now-- abortion and lgbt rights. From Carpetbagger:
When running in Massachusetts [in a 1994 senatorial race against Ted Kennedy], Romney also said he believed abortion should be “safe and legal,” that the government should work to “establish full equality for America’s gay and lesbian citizens,” and had his campaign hand out fliers with his well wishes during Boston’s annual Gay Pride Parade. Romney even accepted the endorsement of the Log Cabin Republicans.
Then there's the money quote, something that really won't fly with the religious-right.
“People of integrity don’t force their beliefs on others, they make sure that others can live by different beliefs they may have,” Romney is quoted as saying.
All of this *might* be acceptable to the social conservatives *if* his change of heart had to do with a Jesus-spoke-to-me, born-again moment, however, I don't think Mormons have that option.
