• Mitt Romney is a Mormon, and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS).
• Mitt Romney is the fifth Mormon to try for presidency.
• Comparing his stance to that of John F. Kennedy's famous address in 1960, Mitt Romney said
'Like him, I am an American running for president. I do not define my candidacy by my religion. A person should not be elected because of his faith nor should he be rejected because he believes in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers -- I will be true to them and to my beliefs,"
• In his Faith in America speech on December 16th 2007, Mitt Romney said
"No candidate should become the spokesman for his faith. For if he becomes president he will need the prayers of the people of all faiths."
