Romney attacked for being Mormon



Mitt Romney won over many of the hundreds of people gathered to see him last night in The Villages, but he faced an awkward moment when one fellow attacked his faith.

"You sir, you are a pretender. You do not know the Lord, you are a Mormon," the man shouted, drawing boos.

Romney responded calmly. "Let me offer just a thought," he said. "One of the great things about this great land is we have people of different faiths and different persuasion, but we need to have a person of faith to lead this country." More here.
