On Romney's Freedom and Religion

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney gave an interesting speech last week about the role of religion in public life. This quote is generating a lot of comments:
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.
Religion without freedom? Just look at Islam in Saudi Arabia.

Freedom without religion? That's moral and social anarchy.

Romney is right on the money--and gaining my attention as a voter.

I don't understand his comment Saudi Arabia is one of the United State's best allies in the Islam world. Offending people doesn't solve anything and only makes peace harder. Saudi Arabia isn't a bad place. Islam isn't a bad religion and all of the Saudi's I have ever met are more generous and "Christian like" than any Christian I know. There are only a few that are making a bad name for the whole. There are people like this in every group in life. I call them bad guys not Islamist.
