Romney 's not losing his religion

Who's not happy with the digs at his religion?

That would be Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Whatever. Get over it, dude. Sorry, America's spooked by Mormons. That's not going to change.

"Clearly, any derogatory comments about anyone's faith _ those comments are troubling. The fact they keep on coming up is even more troubling," Romney said during a fundraising trip in the home state of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Mormon church is one of the fastest-growing religions and claims about 12.5 million members worldwide. But many evangelical Christians in crucial primary states such as Iowa and South Carolina consider the faith a cult.

Romney's remarks follow an apology from GOP rival John McCain's campaign for comments about the Mormon church allegedly made this year by a volunteer.
