Romney's Faith to Take Center Stage in Speech

Ad Feedback

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney takes the stage tonight at the Republican National Convention as he accepts the GOP presidential nomination.

The night is devoted to presenting Romney to the nation not only a successful businessman but as a man devoted to family and faith.

Tonight, on a stage rebuilt to bring him closer to the audience, Romney will deliver the biggest speech of his life, as he hopes to connect with the American people and show he is the right man for the job of president of the United States.

CBN News Paul Strand is in Tampa at the RNC Convention. He spoke more about what Romney needs to say to appeal to undecided voters tonight. Also, will Romney's Mormon faith turn off evangelical Christians? Watch Stand's insight, following this report. 

"It will be my privilege to make my case to the American people," Romney said. "Together, we'll get this country back on track. We'll deliver the recovery we've been waiting for."

A spokesman said Romney will talk about how his Mormon faith has shaped and formed his values.

Many evangelical Christians have expressed concern about voting for a Mormon.

Last night former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told the convention crowd that policies count more than religion in electing a president.

"Of the four people on the two tickets, the only self-professed evangelical is Barack Obama," Huckabee said.

He then noted that Obama supports "changing the definition of marriage; believes that human life is disposable and expendable at any time in the womb, even beyond the womb; and tells people of faith that they must bow their knees to the god of government and violate their faith and conscience in order to comply with what he calls healthcare."

"I care far less as to where Mitt Romney takes his family to church than I do about where he takes this country," he said.

Huckabee also said opposition to Obama's policies has united evangelicals, Catholics, and people of all faiths.
