Who Not To Vote For in 2008

Yeah, apparently the United States Constitution Bill of Rights means nothing to someone like Mitt Romney. In a speech he gave today he was quoted saying:


There are some who may feel that religion is not a matter to be seriously considered in the context of the weighty threats that face us. If so, they are at odds with the nation’s founders, for they, when our nation faced its greatest peril, sought the blessings of the Creator. And further, they discovered the essential connection between the survival of a free land and the protection of religious freedom. In John Adams’ words: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … Our Constitution,” he said, “was made for a moral and religious people.”

Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom. Freedom opens the windows of the soul so that man can discover his most profound beliefs and commune with God. Freedom and religion endure together, or perish alone.


No religion should dictate to the state nor should the state interfere with the free practice of religion. But in recent years, the notion of the separation of church and state has been taken by some well beyond its original meaning. They seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgment of God. Religion is seen as merely a private affair with no place in public life. It’s as if they are intent on establishing a new religion in America – the religion of secularism. They are wrong.

They? Who is “they”? He’s clearly talking about those people like me, people who believe freedom of religion means not having a to pick a religion at all. Clearly mr. Romney thinks everyong should have to believe in god and practice some religion. The founding fathers were clear that religion was an option open to all and in no way should ever be imposed by the government. Disagree? Go read the first amendment of the US Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

I would also like to point out that this tool referred to secularism as a religion. What an idiot.
