"I don't think we've seen in the history of this country the kind of attack on religious conscience, religious freedom, religious tolerance that we've seen under Barack Obama"
February 24, 2012
Federal Statutes outlawing polygamy, and specifically directed against the "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" in Utah Territory, began with the Morrill Act of 1862, signed by Abraham Lincoln. 12 Stat. 501 (July 1, 1862). So, President Lincoln was actually a greater foe of religious "conscience, freedom, and tolerance" than President Obama--and against Romney's (and my) own church! I still like both Lincoln and Obama better than a potential President Romney.
And, please! Don't let anyone think I am in any way advocating modern polygamy. I am only acknowledging my own family and church history with great respect for those who were faithful to their religious beliefs and practices of those days. I would like to see that honesty and respect out of Romney who should know better.
