This is Mitt Romney's Biography on Wikipedia:

Born on March 12, 1947 in Detroit, Michigan, Mitt Romney is the son of 1968 presidential candidate George W. Romney and 1970 U.S. Senate candidate Lenore Romney. He was named after hotel magnate J. Willard Marriott, his father's best friend.[3]

Romney married his high school girlfriend Ann Davies in 1968. Both are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as Mormons, though Ann was raised Episcopalian .[4] They have five sons as well as ten grandchildren.

Romney's great-grandparents were polygamist Mormons who fled to Mexico in 1884 after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld various anti-polygamy laws in 1879. [5] Romney's father was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, and moved to the United States in 1912 [5] after the outbreak of the Mexican Revolution. [6] [7]

Romney is a former bishop and stake president in his church, and he attends a temple regularly. As such, he doesn't drink or smoke. He's also a proponent of family values, saying that he abstained from sex until marriage and has since remained faithful to his wife of 38 years. [8] [9] [10]

My count has 6 mentions of his families religion in 10 sentences. 60% of his 10 sentences Biography mentions his religion. John McCain's article doesn't mention his religion once in the entire text of his article. Off to the side it mentions that he is " Baptist" (yes another McCain flip-flop)
The article says:
  1. the Romney's are "members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints "
  2. "Mormons"
  3. "Ann was raised Episcopalian" (this is an article about Mitt Romney. None of the other articles mention the religion of their spouse.)
  4. "Romney's great-grandparents were polygamist Mormons" No other presidential article mentions any of their great-grandparents, good or bad. It is just not relevant. I bet their were slave owners in Bill Clinton's past. Mentioning Bill Clinton's slave holding ancestors would be similar to mentioning Romney's would be similar as mentioning that in his wikipedia article as mentioning this in Romney's.
  5. it say; "Romney is a former bishop "
  6. "and stake president in his church". Mitt Romney's inclusion in Wikipedia is a result of his activities in the 2002 winter Olympics, a businessman, governor, and presidential candidate. People don't get included in wikipedia for being former "Mormon bishops or stake presidents". Romney is note-worthy and therefore worthey of being included in wikipedia because of his run for president, his governorship, Olympic experience, and business accomplishments, but the first thing you read about in his article is his religion, and his great-grandparent's practice of polygamy.
  7. But this last point is the worst: "...in his church, and he attends a temple regularly. As such, he doesn't drink or smoke. He's also a proponent of family values , saying that he abstained from sex until marriage and has since remained faithful to his wife of 38 years. [8][9] [10]" Does any other presidential candidate's wikipedia article investigate if they "regularly" attend to religious duties? How often does Hillary Clinton or Barak Obama go to church? No one cares. They get included in wikipedia because of their accomplishments (none) and because the media thinks they deserve to be president. As such their religious practices are not really relevant, except to the non-professional people who edit Mitt Romney's wikipedia article.

The democrats know that Romney will lose to the extent that he is "the Mormon" candidate. Apparently only democrats edit his wikipedia article.

Good points. Why didn't you click edit and make some changes?



I do but it keeps getting changed back... I complained in the discussion page, but the majority of people who edit Romney's page suck...



I heard that Wikipedia information can be edited - perhaps the campaign should develop an edited biography that truly represents the wonderful personal and professional accomplishments of Governor Romney. I will research some contacts and inquire.
