    "The American culture promotes personal responsibility, the dignity of work, the value of education, the merit of service, devotion to a purpose greater than self, and, at the foundation, the pre-eminence of the family. The power of these values is evidenced by a Brookings Institution study that Senator Rick Santorum brought to my attention. For those who graduate from high school, get a full-time job, and marry before they have their first child, the probability that they will be poor is 2%. But, if those things are absent, 76% will be poor. Culture matters.

    "As fundamental as these principles are, they may become topics of democratic debate. So it is today with the enduring institution of marriage. Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman. The protection of religious freedom has also become a matter of debate. It strikes me as odd that the free exercise of religious faith is sometimes treated as a problem, something America is stuck with instead of blessed with. Perhaps religious conscience upsets the designs of those who feel that the highest wisdom and authority comes from government." - Mitt Romney, speaking at today's commencement at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University.



    Liberty University is a fundamentalist Christian "college" established by bigot Jerry Falwell.

    Also notice the shout out he gave to Santorum.

    So if we object to them denying equal rights to gay people, we're denying their "religious freedom"? icon_rolleyes.gif

    lol, now he's going to have to explain why Muslims/Islamics in your country can't have Shariah law, as their religion dictates. Darn that pesky freedom of religion thing.

    Perhaps Mitt meant Freedom Of Specifically Christian Religion

    Just looky here:

Oh yeah with a 50% plus divorce rate, did ya figure that in? I guess that bitch he divorced is rich raising those 4 kids with deadbeat dad making tons of money with his new floozy! Did ya count that in your 'study'? Yeah Im speaking from personal experience.. you aint in touch with reality, period!

    Good! I hope he continues to pander even farther to the Right. The Independents in the middle will be watching...even when he tries to shake the etch-a-sketch.

    We know he is a serial flip-flopper, but how is he going to reconcile his regressive line on gay marriage with his progressive flyer of 10 years ago (apart from lying about it, that is) ?
