But I was greatly disappointed when I read this:
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will deliver the invocation. And Grant Bennett, a longtime friend who has served in Mormon leadership roles with Mr. Romney, will speak to the Republican convention here....
... both Mr. Romney and his wife, Ann, recently have begun to share a little more about their religious life, even allowing a small group of reporters to attend church with them earlier this month. Mr. Robinson supports the move, saying that understanding the Romneys' faith is central to understanding them.
"This is just the fabric of their being," he said....
During the current campaign, the most notable issue related to religion is how it has all but ceased to be an issue. It was almost a year ago when Robert Jeffress, a Baptist pastor in Dallas, called Mormonism a cult. Since then, religion seldom has come up in the campaign.
But polls show Mr. Romney's support still lags among evangelical Christians, a key group within his party. In the latest Wall Street Journal/ NBC News poll, only 55% of evangelicals said they have very positive or somewhat positive feelings about Mr. Romney. Among all Republicans, 74% had positive feelings.
Ralph Reed, founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, acknowledged that some evangelical voters may shun Mr. Romney because of his faith, but said most of them reside in heavily Republican states, such as Arkansas, Oklahoma and South Carolina.
"We don't need 'em," he said.
As one Reformed writer said:
Senator Hatch says of Mitt Romney: “He literally lives his religion.” That’s the problem, and it’s an expected one. Romney’s demonic religion has a massive influence in his life and decision-making. Should that cause anxiety to the Christian voter? Is that anxiety such a problem that a Bible-believing person could not, in good conscience, vote for Mitt Romney or any other Mormon?
I'll vote for Romney. But I'll be holding my nose while I do it.
