Romney says Obama has 'fought against religion' - Yahoo! News
Are there any doubts that the Republicans are going to make this election about religion?SHELBY, Mich. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Tuesday that President Barack Obama's administration has "fought against religion" and sought to substitute a "secular" agenda for one grounded in faith.
Obama's campaign seized on the characterization, calling Romney's comments "disgraceful."
Romney rarely ventures into social issues in his campaign speeches but was asked about how he would protect religious liberty during a town hall-style meeting one week before the Michigan primary.
"Unfortunately, possibly because of the people the president hangs around with, and their agenda, their secular agenda — they have fought against religion," he said.
