Yesterday, Mitt Romney spoke at the Christian college, Liberty University, where he tried breaking through his Mormon image to become the Evangelical Christian candidate to beat. Pandering to the crowd, he made a couple interesting statements about gay marriage and the state of Christian values in America. To wit:
Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman.
But in the same speech, Romney also said:
Whether the cause is justice for the persecuted, compassion for the needy and the sick, or mercy for the child waiting to be born, there is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience in action.
Of course the "persecuted" in question, sadly, does not include same-sex couples who were denied legal unions in North Carolina, but rather the downtrodden wealthy white males who bully and assault gay teens.
