A Mormon President?

Mitt Romney, the governor of Massachusetts, faces a great dilemma. Currently, Romney is campaigning for the upcoming Republican presidential election. Despite the qualities he possess, his Mormon faith has become a possible barrier for his success. Church officials are worried about how his candidacy will influence their faith and Mormons in general. Americans are also suspicious of this religion. Because most of its information has been in secrecy for so many years, it has remained a mysterious faith in the eyes of many.

Should a candidate's faith determine their entering into the White House? The Mormon religion is one that has had several past situations held against them. Even if those incidents had nothing to do with the Mormons, they were blamed because of the incorporation of the name. Still, the question remains whether religion should be a factor in who is elected by the people. The answer is soon to be discovered.


  • Until you can show me how Mitt Romney has created a theocracy in the state of Mass., I have no fears about him being in the White House!
