Romney Attacks Obama's "Secular Agenda"

You had to know this was coming. Rick Santorum states that President Obama’s agenda is not “based on the Bible.” So here comes Mitt Romney criticizing the president’s “secular agenda” and "attack" on religion. All this was sparked by birth control coverage for staff in religiously affiliated institutions–an issue in which the president has clearly compromised. Not that that matters to the Republicans, a party that more resembles the Taliban every day. The current crop of GOP candidates are not so much running for president as chief theologian. Excerpts from Romney’s comments in Michigan:

"You expect the president of the United States to be sensitive to that freedom and protect it and, unfortunately, perhaps because of the people the president hangs around with, and their agenda, their secular agenda, they have fought against religion"...

..."I can assure you, as someone who has understood very personally the significance of religious tolerance and religious freedom and the right to one's own conscience, I will make sure that we never again attack religious liberty in the United States of America"...
