    Ron Paul: Romney’s Faith Should Not be an Issue

    December 6, 2007 12:19 am EST

    ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – In light of Governor Romney’s anticipated “religion speech,” fellow Republican candidate Ron Paul issued the following statement:

    “We live in times of great uncertainty when men of faith must stand up for American values and traditions before they are washed away in a sea of fear and relativism. I have never been one who is particularly comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena, and I find the pandering that typically occurs in the election season to be distasteful.

    “Our nation was founded to be a place where religion is freely practiced and differences are tolerated and respected. I come to my faith through Jesus Christ and have accepted him as my personal savior. At the same time, I have worked tirelessly to defend and restore individual rights and religious freedom for all Americans.

    “The recent attacks and insinuations, both direct and subtle, that Gov. Romney may be less fit to serve as president of our United States because of his faith fly in the face of everything America stands for. Gov. Romney should be judged fairly, on his record and his character, not on the church he attends.”

    Would he say the same thing if a Rastifarian was the candidate?

    The goal of every Mormon male is to become (a) god. I don't want a god-wannabe as president.
