Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney blasting rival Rick Perry after one of the Texas governor's supporters -- drives it Romney's Mormon faith.
As a cult Romney had this to say this is on -- in Russia.
The idea that -- somehow there's this political candidates.
Going to encourage the American people to make our selection based upon religion.
That's an idea that is entirely foreign.
To a nation which is -- -- -- religious tolerance for the just plurality really disrespect.
And that I think that's just the wrong direction for the country and that -- of the spirit of our nation's heritage.
And let's bring back our power panel Judith Miller KT McFarland and didn't mean -- rally said Kati.
You call perhaps the first time we elected a Catholic.
Yeah 1960 I remember my parents one Catholic want Episcopalians so the Catholics I -- -- to catechism.
And we would say rose agrees that JFK -- get elected president the first Catholic president and then I go to church with my mother and we were saying.
How terror of all would be if the Pope were dictating American -- what happens is the first time somebody -- the new ethnic or religious group gets elected.
-- runs for office everybody falls on one side of the other -- the second time simply -- desperate.
It's national take a look at this -- this was a Gallup poll that was done in June June ninth in the twelfth.
And this -- specifically asking you know who would you vote for prefer 94% said that they would vote for a black person 93% -- want name.
Not 18% Catholic -- Jewish guys down from there and then you get to a -- -- and 76%.
Stated they would vote from warming.
Followed by gay or lesbian and then an atheist so interesting results -- this well very interesting I mean the good news for.
Romney is that he's not an atheist -- -- -- -- Seriously I think -- what He -- Was absolutely right in response to Rick Perry's unconscionable.
Attack on his thing.
This is a country where it -- should not be an issue and shame on repairing.
For making love what I'm Rick Perry -- I was wondering parents' support or better yet but He did not walk away from it and if you don't walk away from you condone it.
Well he's introducing him hat and that so then that yeah.
With the massive avalanche Kennedy did pick -- palaces and He can't -- neighbors and well I think He needs to -- give a speech to wait even Obama addressed isn't religious affiliation neatly at thirty seconds last -- I think ignorance is the catalyst towards discrimination if you don't define what it's about early on guided your public relations wanna want to come out.
With what you want the public to know and understand -- the way there and -- kind of brings it full circle lively go back to the day that we're celebrating Martin Luther King's memorial absolutely okay thank you up -- I can't thank thank.
