So, are you placated by Mitt Romney’s JFK moment as he addressed concerns about his Mormon faith?
Mormons tend to be strong on civic righteousness, to use a term from the other day, so he’d probably be OK. Michael Gerson has a good analysis of the speech, showing how he was actually differing in a substantial way from what Kennedy said about his Catholicism, insisting that faith does have a role in the public square. But I still have qualms. Mormons are very big on civil religion, and I fear what that could become. What do you think?
