perhaps he will speak in sacrament meeting on sunday and explain his "hard to define" testimony.

His kid went to Judge, that should say it all where his LDS 'roots' are concerned. And I'm not saying that a good LDS family wouldn't have their kids attend Judge. All I'm saying is that usually 1+1 equals 2 and that we can learn a lot about his overall attitudes by reviewing his surroundings.

Huntsman has rarely lived outside of Utah. He's a billionaire governor of one of our smallest states, which had prosperity at the same time the rest of the country saw prosperity and downturn when the rest of us had a downturn. What has he done that is so remarkable?

If he had stayed as ambassador to China another 2 years and accomplished something notable while there, it might have made a case for voting for the man.

@patriot and johnny
and your comments say a lot about you, including your own rejection of church doctrine with regards to judgment of others, so whats your point?

In a political context, why does he need to explain his testimony????

In a religious context, unless you are one of the three people who sign his temple recommend, home teacher, or someone who has stewardship (bishop, perhaps a close family member), he is not required to define his "tough to define" membership status to anyone else. Nor it is anyone else's business. And those who deserve a sincere, more in-depth answer, would hopefully be doing it out of love - not condemnation.

I can understand the need and desire to trust a person you might vote for in political office. However, ones "testimony" doesn't necessarily provide the litmus test. The vagueness of his answers with regard to religion trouble me - a potential voter - far less than his vagueness with regard to many political issues. Because, frankly, I don't know where he does stand on many political issues.

And what exactly does his testimony have to do with his qualification to be President or any other job he may or may not choose to do? You don't have to be active LDS to be a good person.
