Mitt Romney nails tough question.
“All people are children of God.”
I’ve expressed dismay about this many times—twice this week in conversation. So I was relieved to see Romney answer this important question.
“Thirty-one years old and your Church was discriminating against blacks..?!”
And, obviously, I’m no fan of Romney. But he nails this—with passion, heart and an appreciation for a complicated, too-slow evolution. I’ve frankly never seen him seem sincere at all—so I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see it here.
(This is from a few years ago)
Don’t think he’s truly sincere? That’s your call. Given that he doesn’t match his words, then, to his view on Gay Rights, now…you may have a point. Still, credit where due: he gives a thoughtful, fair answer here.
