Dolan: Mitt’s Mormonism No Issue

Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith shouldn’t affect whether or not voters choose him, Cardinal Timothy Dolan said Sunday. The New York archbishop said in an interview on CBS that some of the difficulties faced by Mormons are similar to what American Jews and Catholics have endured. Paraphrasing a speech he made at the Anti-Defamation League earlier this year, Dolan said: “There may be reasons not to vote for Mitt Romney as president of the United States. That he’s Mormon cannot be one of them.” The speech got a standing ovation, and Dolan said. “I don’t think Catholics would have any problem voting for a Mormon at all.”
