Now that Mitt Romney is giving a speech about faith, I’d like to hear speeches from all the candidates on faith. There seems to be general agreement here that a candidate’s faith is relevant to how they may govern, so we should encourage the other candidates to do the same. I’d love to hear how Rudy’s faith influences his decision-making (if indeed it does) — same with John McCain, Fred Thompson (although he has provided some indication), and so forth. And I’d like to know more about Mike Huckabee’s religious beliefs as well. And as for the Democrats, it seems to me they want to have it both ways. On the one hand, they say religion ought not influence their governance (it’s a private matter, separation of church and state, etc.). Yet, they can’t wait to be seen in public at large religious gatherings where they invoke the name of God while talking about their policy agenda. I actually think Romney’s on to something. And he might want to challenge the other candidates to be as forthcoming as he is.
