Another of Mitt Romney's cousins, Park Romney has resigned from the Church.  He has stated, "I think the notion that a candidate's religion should not be considered and weighed thoughtfully by his constituents is absurd.  Mitt Romney is an active High Priest of the Mormon Church.   Mitt Romney's Mormon faith is absolutely an issue."

The mainstream media has demonstrated a reluctance to question Romney's Mormon religion; however, during the 2008 election, Barack Obama was forced to leave the Christian church he had attended for years and to publicly repudiate its pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, following numerous stories about Wright's fiery sermons.

Romney has avoided personally attacking President Obama about his prior connection with Reverend Wright; however, he continues to say that Obama wants to make the United States "a less Christian nation."

Mitt Romney has stated, "There are some who would have a presidential candidate describe and explain his church's distinctive doctrines.  To do so would enable the very religious test the founders prohibited in the Constitution."

Romney and his campaign managers are, however, very aggressively making an issue of President Obama's religion.  He has said, "Unfortunately, possibly because of the people the president hangs around with, and their agenda, their secular agenda -- they have fought against religion."

A current Romney television advertisement asks, "Who shares your values?"  "President Obama used his health care plan to declare war on religion, forcing religious institutions to go against their faith."  However, Romney now disavows the universal health care plan he implemented while governor of Massachusetts, which is virtually identical to the President's plan.

Born to and raised with privilege, Romney wants it all; he wants to attack Obama's religious principles and he wants to avoid answering questions about the legitimacy of his own religion and how it would affect his decisions, if elected.
