Holy Sh*t

Theology is the effort to explain the unknowable in terms of the not worth knowing
H.L. Mencken (1880–1956), writer

Why does Mitt Romney have to give a speech about his religion? Consider this from Lapham’s quarterly:

The number of people in the United States at the moment who believe in the literal truth of the "Book of Revelation" exceeds the number of people who lived in all of medieval Christendom.

Yes, the idea that Mittens is "reassuring" the non-Mormon theocracy that he would exercise his duties informed by the same core Christian "values" as them is quite literally nauseating to me. CORE CHRISTIAN VALUES SHOULDN'T FIGURE INTO THE EXERCISE OF ANYTHING BUT PERSONAL WORSHIP.
