Romney makes pitch for support from bigots who doubt that Obama’s a Christian
The great irony in THIS is that Mitt Romney is himself the target of religious bigots. In effect, he’s pitching his anti-Obama rhetoric to the same people who are wary of his own Mormonism:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Monday said that President Barack Obama had taken his war on faith to the next level by wanting to establish a new “religion” for the purpose of rejecting all religious doctrines.
At an event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a supporter asked the candidate what the Obama administration’s motive was for mandating that the health insurance provided by all religious institutions cover contraceptives for women.
“I think there is in this country a war on religion,” Romney replied. “I think there is a desire to establish a religion in America known as secularism.”
