Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church

Hosted by

Mitt Romney and the Mormon ChurchMitt Romney speaks often about his faith in God and his loyalty to "the same church."  But in 2007, when he made a carefully written speech about his religion, he mentioned the word "Mormon" only 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." Despite his big money, years of organizing and a chattering-class consensus that he's the "inevitable" nominee, Romney has failed to connect with two-thirds of Republican voters. Should he be more open about his Mormon faith? How it would shape his conduct in office? We talk with fellow Mormons and others.
