Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney addressed religion in America and his Mormon faith in a major speech Thursday morning.
Some voters have expressed skepticism about the Governor's faith, including Republicans in early primary and caucus states.
An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll last month found 33 percent of Republicans said they were uncomfortable or had reservations about Romney's religion.
Today, at the library of former President Bush, Romney embraced his Mormon faith, but he said that religion would be held separate from carrying out the duties of President.
"There are some for whom these commitments are not enough. They would prefer it if i would simply distance myself from my religion, say that it is more a tradition than my personal conviction, or disavow one or another of its precepts. That i will not do. I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers - I will be true to them and to my beliefs. Some believe that such a confession of my faith will sink my candidacy. If they are right, so be it. But I think they underestimate the american people. Americans do not respect believers of convenience, " Romney said.
