Romney Loves All Gods, Hates All Seculars
Mitt Romney's "Faith in America" speech this morning demonstrated that while he doesn't intend to convert American democracy into Mormonism, he does intend to convert it into religion in general. So... that's good! -ish? He mentioned Mormonism only once, but not in reference to his underpants. Or to why anyone would ever become a Mormon.
Romney calmed the collective rage about his batshit crazy religion early on by proclaiming that he "will serve no one religion, no one group, no one cause, and no one interest" if elected president. Instead, he promised to serve all religions over all separations of churches and states:
The former Massachusetts governor, 60, also said that religion must not be totally removed from public life and that the founding fathers' concept of separation of church and state "has been taken by some well beyond its original meaning" in recent years.
"Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom," he said.
So in order to keep our freedom, we are required to get religion, if you become president? I'm glad this speech was so soothing. We don't have to worry about his Mormonism anymore, just a theocracy.
