Romney Defends Mormon Faith in GOP Debate

As if this should even be a headline in media coverage of an American presidential race. I’m beginning to think it’s the media which is more bigoted toward Mormons. Can you imagine a headline highlighting McCain’s, Giuliani’s or Thompson’s religion? Give me a break!


MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has defended his Mormon faith in a debate with other GOP presidential candidates in New Hampshire.

Romney insisted that his beliefs are similar to those taught by other religions.

He said, “I believe in God, believe in the Bible, believe Jesus Christ is my savior.”

Comparing himself to John F. Kennedy, the only Roman Catholic to be elected president, Romney said he’s a “proud member” of the Mormon church who won’t disown it for political advantage.
