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

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