Mitt Romney: Is His Faith Really A Problem for Voters?

If you're interested in Mitt Romney's probable candidacy for president, you'll probably want to visit Article 6 Blog. Today's post explores the possibility of a manufactured issue: Are questions about Romney's electability due to his Mormon faith based on voters' real concerns, or on the conjecture of pundits? There are some links to interesting information you won't find anywhere else.

I realize you'd be happy to get a Mormon in the Whitehouse and good for you for wishing that. I would just caution you that, as a Catholic, this was our issue a few decades back and now we have the likes of Kerry, Kennedy, Pelosi, Reid and company all supporting partial birth abortion and gay marriage.

Be careful what you wish for.

I like much of what I hear about Romney but I need a lot more info before I'll vote for a man that has had the approval of Massachusetts voters. Perhaps he might turn out to be the one out there that could unite the party -who knows.

DL,

We've heard about "Catholic guilt" before, but never imagined it was so extensive that it meant you felt you had to take blame for other Catholics' lapses from orthodoxy too! Yikes.

However, we'll take one off your collective shoulders. Reid is LDS . . . so we conservative Mormons already have a poster boy for understanding that religious affiliation can't be substituted for looking at the political positions of those we elect to office.

Perhaps you misinterpret "guilt" with the "disgust" with "pretend Catholic" politicians, that I obviously pointed out.

I also wish to repeat: I'll wait to get a lot more information on Mitt's record in Massachusetts as a politician(not a spiritual leader) befor I vote. I do wish a man of character and political wisdom is what he turns out to have been. I certainly do like his response to that animal from Iran's visit.
