"We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may."

That would be nice but Romney has already violated it by going after Obama saying he wants to create a national religion of secularism (which is translated in that sentence as atheism because he doesn't use the word secularism in the right context).

@TAI- Rick Warren was accurately stating the major problem that non-LDS Christians have had with Mormonism since its inception. It did not restore anything that was ever practiced historically or documented. Even baptism for the dead was referred to by the Apostle Paul as "they" who practiced it, not "we".

Warren was not debating the validity of the Trinity, but rather its historicity and catholic teaching. While Protestants and Catholics disagree on major points, the Triune nature of God is one doctrine of unity. Evangelicals admire and are in agreement with much of Mormonism. The unbiblical doctrines are where they part company with Catholics, Mormons, Moonies, JWs, Christian Scientists, United Pentecostals, and some Seventh Day teachings by Ellen G.White. It's simply an issue of Biblical supremacy, pure and simple.

Religion aside, I am considering voting for Romney based on his positions and ethics. It would be a breath of fresh air for our country to have a gentleman, a statesman and an honest man as president, Triune God or not.
