New aggressor

"New aggressor" Continued...

Near the end of Thursday night's debate each of the four candidates got to discuss the role their religious beliefs would play in White House.

Santorum, a Catholic, said, "Faith has everything to do with it." Gingrich, also Catholic, argued, "Anyone who is president is faced with decisions so enormous that they should go to God." Romney, a Mormon, said he would "seek the guidance of providence in making critical decisions." Paul, who said his religious beliefs "affect my character and the way I treat people and how I live," asserted that his actions as president would be based on "the oath of office and promises I've made to people."
