Mitt Romney (Mormon), is a Harvard-educated man marked by a distinguished business career in the private sector and tenure as influential public servant and political leader, who made a momentous decision to run for the office of President of the United States. Mitt comes to the global stage tenaciously. Romney has received a great deal of media attention--and, in fact, undue criticism--for his deeply-held Christian religious beliefs, raised in the context of his candidacy for national office. He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, frequently misnamed the "Mormon Church." Its constituents, Latter-day Saints, are often nicknamed "Mormons"--hence, the media's simplified references to "Mitt Romney, Mormon," or "Mitt's Mormonism."

This website is dedicated to giving an accurate picture of Mitt Romney as a person, as a Mormon, and as presidential candidate in 2012. It is not designed to influence readers' political opinions, but is designed with the hope of giving readers a correct representation of the facts, so they can make their own informed decisions. We welcome you and hope you gain here a better understanding of what Mormons believe and how Mitt Romney's Mormon beliefs influence or do not influence his political views and capabilities.

Mormonism no longer a factor in presidential race

If Mitt Romney loses the 2012 presidential election, it probably won’t be because of religion, according to Steven Chapman, an editorial columnist for oaoa.com. He said: There are two big reasons Romney’s faith is having so little impact on the race. One is that the people most inclined to hold it against him have bigger things to worry about. In 2008, white evangelical voters went for John McCain over Obama by a 73-26...

Documentary Explores Role of Religion in Campaigns

A documentary by Trevor Hill explores the role a candidate’s religion plays in the public’s perception of the candidate and who is responsible for controlling that perception. It is a non-partisan look at the complexities of the current campaign, which features a Republican ticket that lacks a Protestant candidate. Mitt Romney is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, whose members are sometimes...

American Exceptionalism: does it matter?

Much has been said in the press lately regarding Mitt Romney’s view of “American Exceptionalism,” an idea rife in the Book of Mormon and in Mormonism, Romney’s faith.  Mormonism holds that the Lord raised up the Founding Fathers specifically to frame the Constitution of the United States of America.  In the Doctrine and Covenants, Mormon scripture that is a record of modern revelation, the Lord calls the...
