Romney on Religion

Romney took an opportunity to do a bit of insulation on his Mormon faith when asked about whether Roman Catholic priests should prohibit pro-abortion rights politicians to receive communion.

"We have a separation of church and state," Romney said. "It's served us well."

Without directly referring to himself, he added: "This country wants a person of faith but we don't choose our leader based on the church they go to."

Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) refused to take a shot at Romney, simply insisting that his faith explained him. "A person's faith should not qualify or disqualify for public office," said Huckabee.

The Republican candidates for president--you have to laugh when you consider what will happen to the GOP in November 2008. All they need is General Custer to be reborn to lead them into that election.
