Is Mitt Romney Too Reticent about His Mormon Faith?

Hosted by

Mitt Romney's been called the "presumed front-runner," since the Republican campaign began, but most party members are looking for somebody else. Has Romney failed to tell them who he really is?  He calls Mormonism key to his character and often mentions his faith in God and loyalty to "the same church," but he's refused to explain how his religion affects his public life. In his one speech on the subject, he used the word "Mormon" exactly once. He seems, "unable to talk about the very subject he seems to care about most, a lifelong source of spiritual, familial and intellectual sustenance." If he were more open, could he shake the impression that he's hiding something? Even some fellow Mormons say raising the question is not religious bigotry. We look for answers.
