Romney on his religion: No candidate should be rejected because of his faith

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is confronting skepticism about his Mormon faith. In a speech today 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.
