Romney's Religion Speech

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is confronting skepticism about his Mormon faith.

In a speech Thursday at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Texas, Romney said he endeavors to live by his Mormon beliefs and will be "true" to them. Still, he said he shares the same "moral convictions" as Americans of all faiths, and that he would serve "no one religion, no one group, no one cause" if elected into office.

Romney said calls for him to explain and justify his faith go against the wishes of the nation's founders.

At the same time, Romney decried those who would remove "any acknowledgment of God" from public life.

Romney also said religious tolerance would be a "shallow principle" if it were reserved only for certain faiths. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
