    Romney is afraid to talk about what the Book of Mormon teaches...he even stopped one man from reading one the book's verses who was only reading the verse to set the stage for his question! Imagine devoting 15 yrs. of your life to some book (as romney was a Mormon church leader for 15 yrs) and then not wanting someone to read it! EXPOSED

    If people knew what was actually in that book, they'd send him out on a rail. It's even crazier than the Bible and Koran combined!

      @Phil Spectre, aren't you in jail? In spite of that, I love your big wall of sound productions. Eg) Paul McCartney-Long and Winding Road.

    @ Superman
    This country would be better off keeping religion away from politics and affairs of the State. Personal beliefs and faith should remain just that.

    @@@saywhat@@@bill,,, thank you it makes no since why people bring religious teachings or beliefs into the political arena it does not mix! Oil and water mix better! Im an in active lds member my self and no longer participate and rommney is the last id vote for. Ill stick with obama. But the only defense for the lonley or un educated one in this situation seems to always be religion. Im a gay male of two daughters and i have yet to find a single candidate to hold the pres seat. But i WOULD not vote for romney! Do to the fact that this country will be strong armed into many things, and be expected to submit to sleeping doctrine of that religion(secret combinations) make any since? We as a people must be carefull at this point at voting or keep with what we already have. If we could find or create another political party that was solely for all the people regardless of party than we will have something good to share and practice

    If Romney wants religion to stay out of campaigns, it naturally follows that nothing he proposes legislatively, should he become President, have anything to do with religious beliefs.
    At all.
    This is a wide area that they need to keep their noses out of.

    Sadly, too many of the religious establishments are trying to swing these elections. I know it has always been like this, but these past years have been showing a marked increase in their influence pushing. If thes religious leaders want to be in volved in politics, then they should have to pay taxes like the rest of us. Religion has no place in legislative government. Look at the countries that use religion as their law. It's not pretty.

    @Superman. Yes, I did study the bool of Mormon with Mormons for about 6 months. And Romney cutting-off the man reading from the book of Mormon was shown on TV. I wasn't there personally, but I highly doubt it was staged. Nice try though.

    Once we are rid of religious zealots and holy men telling others what to do, perhaps we will all get along with each other. There certainly won't be as many preached onto the battlefields of the world.

    As if Romney will abandon his faith in the book of Mormon should he become President. Of course he believes in the laws, values, and principles found in the book of Mormon. He's not going to go against them when he makes decisions.

    No one is saying he should abandon his faith.
    No one should abandon them for politics...
    But if he refuses to answer questions about hgis faith, instead of trying to educate people about what his faith consists of, it goes directly to the character of the person who will be governing the highest office in the US.
    At the least end of the spectrum, it seems secretive.
    At the extreme end of the spectrum, it seems hpocritical.
    In any case, religion should be a part of the laws and governance of the people.

      Religion should NOT be a part of laws and governance.
