Romney: Obama To ‘Establish A Religion Known As Secularism’

At a campaign event in Wisconsin on Monday, Mitt Romney said of the Obama administration, “I think there is a desire to establish a religion in America known as secularism.” Romney was replying to a question by a supporter asking why the administration was mandating contraceptive coverage for women employed by religious organizations. Romney also said there is a “war on religion” in this country. To that I say bullshit. When religious figures and organizations don’t get their way on public policy they believe they are being persecuted for their religious beliefs and so they conclude there must be a war on religion. I hate to break it to you, but your religion isn’t the only religion and it’s definitely not the law.
