Well put:

If an unbeliever such as Jefferson or non-churchman like Lincoln can serve brilliantly as president, then America should stand — in an intolerant world characterized all too frequently by religious persecution — as a stirring example of welcoming hospitality for highly qualified men and women of good will seeking the nation’s highest office.

And I’d vote for the Mitt Romney in the YouTube below. I suspect it’s the real one.

    I sense that you’ve taken a liking to Mitt based on some recent posts of yours. I wonder what about him it is that you admire or like. Not to derail this post to be about Romney in general, rather than specifically his faith, but I do not find any political figure where I am left wondering what it is they real stand for appealing.

      Andrew,

      Mitt Romney is the John Edwards of the Republican Party. In other words, he’s completely full of shit. That’s why I’m far, far more comfortable with him than his rivals. He’s not an ideologue. He won’t do anything that isn’t politically calculated and calibrated to opinion polls. It will keep him in line. He’ll be sane and calm.

      I don’t like imperial presidencies. Romney won’t have one. He’ll stay in the bourgeois center and not get us in any unnecessary wars. And he’ll probably be generally good for business.

      I hope Obama stays president. He fits the country well; he does his best; he’s a decent man. But if Romney wins, it’s okay. The other Republicans, with the exception of Huntsman and Ron Paul, are scum.
