BELMONT, Mass. In ticking off his credentials on the campaign trail management consultant, businessman, governor Mitt Romney omits what may have been his most distinctive post: Mormon lay leader, offering pastoral guidance on all manner of human affairs from marriage to divorce, abortion, adoption, addiction, unemployment and even business disputes.
Bryce Clark was a recipient of Mr. Romneys spiritual advice. Late one summer night in 1993, distraught over his descent into alcoholism and drug use, Mr. Clark, then a 19-year-old college student, decided to confess that he had strayed from his Mormon faith. So he drove through this well-heeled Boston suburb to Mr. Romneys secluded seven-bedroom home.
As the highest-ranking Mormon leader in Boston, Mr. Romney was responsible for determining whether Mr. Clark was spiritually fit for a mission, a rite of passage for young Mormon men. Mr. Clark had previously lied to him, insisting that he was eligible to go. But instead of condemnation that night, Mr. Clark said, Mr. Romney offered counsel that the younger man has clung to for years.
He told me that, as human beings, our work isnt measured by taking the sum of our good deeds and the sum of our bad deeds and seeing how things even out, recalled Mr. Clark, now 37, sober and working as a filmmaker in Utah. He said, The only thing you need to think about is: Are you trying to improve, are you trying to do better? And if you are, then youre a saint.(continued)

Four page article.
And as soon as he would get the nomination they would run a piece asking us to imagine what his own planet will be like
I cannot imagine anyone going to Mitt Romney for religious or moral advice. He has frequently shown that he has no decent moral compass himself.
How many girls did he advise to get an abortion, I wonder. How many young men did he tell that gay marriage is OK?
It does appear as though the commie libs in the state run “media” have selected Milt as the GOP candidate.
>>Here comes the MSM push for Milt<<
I think it is the LATEST MSM push for Mitt. As for Uncle Miltie, I think he passed in 2002...
The MSM, the Elites (esp Rhinos) are trying to cram Romney down our throats. WONT WORK MITT. Like a bowel movement that keeps spasming. Mitt should quit he rhymes with “it.”
Every other day of the week, the NY Times is bashing religion and its followers except for islam. Now all of a sudden they are smitten with Mittins and his faith. What a bunch of BS.
Yep, the 0.000001% chance I would support Mitt is now down to 0.000000%.
The New York Times is a clear and present danger to the economic and national security structure of the United States. That they are on their knees for Mitt only confirms my suspicion of him.
Yep. So they can spin 24/7 next year that it is “racist to vote for a Mormon against Obama.”
It appears that the main stream media has found themselves another messiah to worship!!
Why waste time doing any real journalism. They can just cut and paste all their previous McCain stories.
He is a moderate. Somebody that can reach across the aisle BLAH BLAH BLAH.
Then when he is the nominee THEY GO IN FOR THE KILL.
unfortunately, you are either going to back Romney or Obama. I can see the handwirting on the wall (and the money in the bank)
I will not be voting for romney period. Not going to happen under any circumstances....I’ll vote Republican or Tea party down the line but never Romney...never.
thank you, thank you thank you ... /s Barack Obama
From the article:
Mitt Romney was a Mormon leader before politics.
Mitt Romney is still “a Mormon leader before politics”
His mormon beliefs would comes before the nation if he was elected...
as a Mormon he is answerable to his Mormon hierarchy, not the “apostate” American citizens ...
“unfortunately, you are either going to back Romney or Obama”
I guess you didn’t read the same article I did. Romney was bashed many times in the article.
