Long Attention Span Theater: Mitt's on a Mission from God

By |

I wasn't sure this was going to be worth watching in full, but if you want to get a glimpse of Willard Romney beyond the cartoonish opportunist who has been on display in the debates, Mitt's speech on religion yesterday is well worth your time:

Part 1:

"Radical, violent Islam seeks to destroy us."

"Freedom requires religion, just as religion requires freedom."

"A person should not be elected because of his faith, nor should he be rejected because of his faith."

"When I place my hand on the bible, and take the oath of office..."

Part 2:

"Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs even to gain the world."

"I believe Jesus Christ is the son of God and the savior of mankind." "Some are intent on establishing a new religion in America, the religion of secularism. They are wrong."

"I will not separate us from the God who gave us liberty."

Part 3:

"We face no greater threat today than theocratic tyranny." "Reason and religion are friends and allies in the cause of liberty, joined against the evils and dangers of the day."

"Any person who has knelt to the almighty has a friend and ally in me."

"We do not insist on a single strain in religion, rather we welcome our nation's symphony of faith."
