cnn.com — White House hopeful Mitt Romney said religious liberty "is fundamental to America's greatness," in his Thursday address on faith in America.

Romney, seeking to become the first Mormon president, explained how his faith would affect his presidency in his speech at former President George H. W. Bush's presidential library at Texas A&M University.

"There are some who may feel that religion is not a matter to be seriously considered in the context of the weighty threats that face us. If so, they are at odds with the nation's founders," Romney said.

"Freedom requires religion, just as religion requires freedom. Freedom opens the windows of the soul so that man can discover his most profound beliefs and commune with God. Freedom and religion endure together, or perish alone," he said.

The former Massachusetts governor delivered the speech to address religion's role in government as well as concerns voters might have about the Mormon religion.

CNN contributor Bill Bennett said he wasn't sure that Romney addressed those concerns, "but I don't think he had to."

Again, the Christian right proves it's gullibility.
