    While the liberals would love you to believe that Mormons feel a moral obligation to vote for Romney, rest assured that there isn’t. The ongoing feud between Romney and Reid ought to reassure anyone concerned that the LDS Church does not influence their members politically whether in the United States or elsewhere in the world. The Church maintains strict political neutrality, encouraging its members to be engaged in their communities and use their democratic voices after studying the issues, candidates, platforms, etc.

    The title makes it sound almost like the leaders or ‘Mormon brethren’ of their chuch were rallying around Romney, which would of course be surprising and inappropriate.

    It’s actually just a few grassroots nobodies who like Romney. Thinking Mormons who I know would prefer that he lose narrowly, because it does no good to have people instantly think of a politician when they hear the word Mormon.

    And I suppose there isn’t an Africa-American congregation anywhere holding Obama rallies.
