Read what Card said here:
“But it still makes me sad that he would single us out for rejection, when we really ought to be working together.”
“We Mormons don’t agree with you on many vital points of doctrine. But I hope we all agree with each other about this: In a time when a vigorous atheist movement is trying to exclude religious people from participating in American public life unless they promise never to mention or think about their religion while in office, why are we arguing with each other? “

This isn’t a Baptist verses Mormon issue like Mr. Card is trying to say. It is about Orthodox Christianity vs. a CULT. Mormons are nice people. They are some of the most law abiding and moral people around. But so were the Pharisees during Jesus day.
Christianity is about a personal relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ. Mormonism says “DO” and God says it was “DONE” through Jesus death on a Cross. Mormons say you have work your way to heaven and Jesus says He has already done the work.
Jesus said in John 14:6
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
So who decides what is Christian? Jesus did when He said He is the only way to the Father. Not works, not being a good person, not joining a church, not being an American or being brought up in a Christian home. A Christian is one who is a follower of Jesus.
