Shorter Mitt Romney Speech

Put bluntly:

"America loves all Gods; hates everyone who is secular".

Kevin Drum explains why

When Kennedy, as a presidential candidate went to the voters and spoke of his Catholicism, he assured them that no religion, even his own, will govern his presidency.  Romney, on the other hand, said today that all religion, including his own, will govern his presidency.

He was, of course, sucking up to the Christian conservatives.  But his views, while politically prudent (if you want the vote of the religious right) are simply unAmerican.  We separate religion and politics in this country.  Yes, we tolerate all religions, but we also tolerate no religion as well.  Romney, unlike Kennedy, forgot that last part.
