This video is 20 minutes long. The host is a rabid Theological Republican in Iowa and he takes Romney to task on the ACTUAL teachings of the Church and his contradictory positions. Romney isn't a strong leader in this video like his camp is trying to frame him to be - he's frantic, over speaking, and nuancing the positions of a religion in which he was an appointed (by God) leader.
The question: Are you allowed to be pro-choice and be a Mormon in good standing?
The Answer: No. The directives of the leaders of the church prevent that - and you can be disciplined for publicly holding that position.
On this non-negotiable issue, Romney has no footing and will lose votes from anyone who thinks that a person should hold beliefs and live those beliefs without hypocrisy.
- rick, pro-choice with character and honesty.
