GOP puts faith in muting religious differences

(Washington Times) The Republican National Convention has been an ecumenical event, as people laid aside religious differences in the name of backing Mitt Romney and defeating President Obama.

Julie Jones, 91, has been watching the Republican National Convention on television each night in East Lansing, Mich. She is a Lutheran and supporting Mr. Romney, saying the Michigan native’s Mormon religion is not an issue for her as a voter.

“I’m not electing a pastor. I’m electing a president,” said Mrs. Jones, who says she is satisfied that the presidential nominee is a Christian and that religion matters in his life. “I want someone who can lead.”
