Mitt Romney: Faith in God is the Foundation of America and Judges Should Respect that

Mitt Romney

In an interview with Cathedral Age, the magazine of the Washington National Cathedral, Mitt Romney says that the American nation should acknowledge God and that secular judges should rule according to Christian principles. When asked How do you view the role of faith in public life? Mitt Romney answers:

"We should acknowledge the Creator, as did the Founders—in ceremony and word.

He should remain on our currency, in our pledge, in the teaching of our history, and during the holiday season, nativity scenes and menorahs should be welcome in our public places.

Our greatness would not long endure without judges who respect the foundation of faith upon which our Constitution rests."

The problem with Mitt Romney's position is that no one objects to the presence of religion in "public places," insofar as that means out in public where everyone can see.

What some people do object to is religion being supported, promoted, endorsed, and/or funded by public institutions — i.e., the government. Too many many conservative Christians rely on the ambiguity of the term "public" in order to appear to be asking for something reasonable, only to then turn around and do something illegal.
