Romney: 'Other Scriptures' Help Shape His Commitment to U.S.

Mitt Romney responded to questions about his Mormon faith in an interview that aired on Wednesday by professing his faith in God. In an apparent reference to the Book of Mormon, Romney told Fox News: “I read the New Testament and other scriptures that are holy in my view, that shape my sense of commitment to my nation.”

When Romney was asked if he would make any speeches about his beliefs, Romney referenced an address he gave in 2007 on the matter in which he said, “My church's beliefs about Christ may not all be the same as those of other faiths.”


“I don't know that I would add to that, or change it in some way,” he said of that speech.

The questioning turned to Mitt’s wife, Ann, who was asked to name one area of disagreement between the two.  “I completely support 90 percent of where Mitt is,” she said. She declined to say where she disagreed, stating, “I don’t think that’s important.”
