Romney loses crucial polygamist vote, woos crucial evangelical vote

Looks like my dream of being legally married to a blonde, brunette and red-head at the same time is down the tubes.

To help ease concerns over his Mormon background Mitt Romney attempted to channel the "so what I'm Catholic" speech JFK gave in 1960, except that JFK didn't talk about believing in Jesus Christ as his personal savior... and JFK didn't say the division of church and state had gone too far... and um... JFK didn't say those wanting to divide church and state are actually practitioners of a 'secular religion'.... OKAY, THIS DUDE IS NOTHING LIKE JFK.... except for those dreamy eyes...

Summary: "HEY! I like Jesus too! Us Mormons are like you guys!!! We're even scared of gay people!"

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney vowed on Thursday the Mormon church would not run the White House if he is elected, as he sought to reassure Americans wary of his religion.

Attempting to halt a slide in the polls in Iowa, where former Arkansas Gov. and Baptist preacher Mike Huckabee has surged into the lead, Romney made an impassioned appeal to Americans to look beyond his religion.

"Let me assure you that no authorities of my church, or of any other church for that matter, will ever exert influence on presidential decisions. Their authority is theirs, within the province of church affairs, and it ends where the affairs of the nation begin," Romney said.
