Having faith in Romney

December 6, 2007 at 9:24 pm Leave a comment

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney told a Texas audience that he would not let his faith (Mormonism) impact any policy decisions he would make if elected president in 2008.

“Romney addressed a fear that many evangelical Christians have voiced,” NPR reported. “He said his faith would shape his moral values, but he promised that his church would not dictate his policies.”

Perhaps he’s being too cautious, for it seems that he shares common ground on other issues with the evangelicals that make him tiptoe.

“Romney made no mention of hot-button evangelical issues, such as abortion, gay marriage and stem-cell research,” NPR noted.

As governor of Massachusetts, Romney opposed all three of these issues. Reminding voters of his record in these instances might impress the folks at Focus on the Family and be a better way to help his candidacy.
