Some of the more interesting quotes from Romney's speech. I was glad to see he didn't hold back his religious conviction.
"We separate church and state affairs in this country, and for good reason. No religion should dictate to the state nor should the state interfere with the free practice of religion. But in recent years, the notion of the separation of church and state has been taken by some well beyond its original meaning. They seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgment of God. Religion is seen as merely a private affair with no place in public life. It is as if they are intent on establishing a new religion in America - the religion of secularism. They are wrong.
"The founders proscribed the establishment of a state religion, but they did not countenance the elimination of religion from the public square. We are a nation 'Under God' and in God, we do indeed trust.
"We should acknowledge the Creator as did the Founders - in ceremony and word. He should remain on our currency, in our pledge, in the teaching of our history, and during the holiday season, nativity scenes and menorahs should be welcome in our public places. Our greatness would not long endure without judges who respect the foundation of faith upon which our constitution rests. I will take care to separate the affairs of government from any religion, but I will not separate us from 'the God who gave us liberty.'

One of the most bitter rivalry games in the nation has been won by BYU! For the second straight year the Cougars used an improbable last minute drive to capture the victory. The rivalry is so intense because both university's are within thirty minutes of each other, BYU is private, Utah is public. BYU is of course owned by the Mormons and Utah is not. Watch the follwing link to see the most unbelievable finish to last years game at Utah.

Romney and the evangelicals need to join forces against secular America.
"Each year, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sends 20,000 missionaries around the world. These highly devout Mormon youth are the force behind the rapid expansion of what is arguably now the world?s fastest-growing religion."Are there any panty raids?"Each year, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sends 20,000... more
