Christian Science Monitor, Dec. 11, 2007 - Liberal Arts Professor Emeritus Jan Shipps writes about Romney’s speech: "When Mitt Romney gave his ‘Faith in America’ address last Thursday, observers wondered how ‘Mormon’ it would be. ‘Not very,’ is the understandable consensus. Mormonism 101 it was not, and he said very little about his personal religious beliefs, sticking to his announced topic.
"Still, in the way he talked about religious diversity, the nation’s symphony of faiths, the way religious liberty stands at the heart of the American constitutional system, and how religion belongs in the public square, this was a consummate Mormon speech."

Bell of the Department of Sociology in the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI.
