From the NY Times,
Mr. Romney also prays before taking action on decisions he has already made, asking for divine reassurance, a feeling that he is “united with the powers above,” Dr. Hassell said. Sometimes Mr. Romney would report that even though he had made a decision on the merits, prayer had changed his mind.
It seems that Romney's rational decision-making process takes second place to prayer. If Romney's prayers take precedent over his intellectual decisions, shouldn't the voter be allowed to scrutinise his religious beliefs and ask searching questions regarding his religion?
Why should we be expected to 'respect his private beliefs' if they have this much influence on his 9-5 work life? He's bringing his religion to work, so surely that makes it a work-related issue?
What do you think? Are you comfortable that your future president is willing to reject a rational decision in favour of an irrational decision because of his prayers?
