Mitt Hit a Home Run

I didn't hear him give the speech but in its reading you can find vast wisdom. Whoever wrote this speech should be paid double what they are making. The writer took the truths of centuries and wove them into one of the best speeches on American History, Politics and Religion that I have ever read.

I don't agree with Mitt on everything but this speech was fantastic. The challenge will be backing up this speech with your actions. Perhaps Mitt would make the cut or even the VP.

Speech Highlights:

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.

There are some for whom these commitments are not enough. They would prefer it if I would simply distance myself from my religion, say that it is more a tradition than my personal conviction, or disavow one or another of its precepts. That I will not do.

Americans do not respect believers of convenience. Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs, even to gain the world.

We separate church and state affairs in this country, and for good reason. 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 is as if they are intent on establishing a new religion in America – the religion of secularism. They are wrong.

I think he did very well handling the "religious question."
