Biden defends Romney on faith

CNN's Ashley Killough
(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden said it is "outrageous" that a portion of the American public feels uncomfortable with presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Mormon faith.

"Even though he may very well be our opponent, I think it's outrageous - I think it's outrageous that people - or the polling data show that they will not support him, whatever percentage it is because he's (Latter-day Saints), because he is a Mormon," Biden said while speaking at the University of Pittsburgh on Friday.

Romney's faith was the center of controversy last month when an evangelical leader and Rick Perry supporter called Mormonism a "cult" and urged Republicans to vote for a Christian instead of a "non-Christian," referring to Romney.

But according to a CNN/ORC International poll in October, 80% of respondents said a candidate's Mormonism wouldn't make a difference in their selection process.

Still, 17% said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who was Mormon.

On Friday, Biden, a Catholic, argued religion should have no weight in a candidate's qualifications. Speaking on a personal note, the vice president said the election of John F. Kennedy to the White House "totally legitimized" his family, along with other Catholics.

"I find it preposterous that in 2011 we're debating whether or not a man is qualified or worthy of your vote based on whether or not his religion - being a Latter-day Saint - is a disqualifying provision," Biden said. "It is not. It's embarrassing. And we should be ashamed anyone who thinks that way."

Recent polls show Romney in a virtual tie with President Barack Obama in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. According to a Reuters/Ipsos National Poll released Friday, Romney edged Obama 44% to 43%, with a one-percentage point margin well within the sampling error.

AMEN- it is nice to see a VP that defends Article Six of the United States Constitution- that provides that "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States and the 1st Amendment to that Constitution that states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" ....

Or that lives true to the words of Thomas Jefferson:

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their "legislature" should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between church and State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

Do you believe that Sharia Law should be allowed to be used as a basis of a decision in the courts of the United States?

maybe Biden is looking for a new VP slot to fill.. :?

Out of the entire republican field, Romney is the one of the two most liberal choices, , or least conservative... so far about every liberal source has shown some sort of support for Romney... so why wouldn't Biden show his support as well..

they all know Obama has lost hope and citizens now are willing to look to anyone for a change..

as you have said in the past, you like the most liberal choice, Huntsman, but he hasn't made any progress.. so who would you vote for?

is it Romney or another Obama term?

Why is it outrageous? What kind of moron would have a problem with someone voting for someone or against someone because of their belief in or lack of belief in God? Freedom of religion is a constitutional right but my being comfortable with someone from any particular religion is a right not reserved for Joe Biden, Oldtimer , or Kola. I'll be comfortable with whomever I want to be comfortable with. I'll vote for whomever I choose. I'll be voting for a conservative Christian . Biden is a fool and so is anyone who puts any stock in what Biden says.

I have never stated that Romney was not a Mormon. I asked a direct question that still stands as stated. An logical discussion often involves generalized theory.

I feel sorry for you, I really do. Your coming across very simple minded with this reply. I will try to not embarass you too much.

If you would like, you can edit your reply since it should be apparent by now that you misunderstood my question.

We can now move forward with the actual discusion of the topic.
In fact, you can answer the question if you feel passionate about the subject.
