An Open Letter to the Republican Candidates for President

By | November 26, 2011

Dear Candidates,

I am tired of attacks on Mitt Romney based on his Mormon beliefs. I am a politically conservative Jew, and as such, I have no interest in the question of whether or not ‘Mormonism’ is really a part of the Christian faith or not. In fact, it disturbs me to hear of such attacks since the Constitution itself explicitly states that there is no religious test for office.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States. – Article 6, Paragraph 3 [emphasis added]

If you feel the need to attack Romney please do it based on differences of philosophy, ideas and policy – things that effect all of us.

Mitt Romney has been a gentleman throughout this entire primary season. He has stuck to the issues and has focused on bringing his message to the public. I would appreciate if all of you would do the same.

Sincerely,
An undecided voter

    the same amendment that says freedom of religion also says they have the freedom to express their belief that his is not what they want in a president.
