Romney’s speech, as delivered by a theocrat

Courtesy of Patrick Deneen. Kinda eats away at this universalist pablum:

"I believe that every faith I have encountered draws its adherents closer to God. And in every faith I have come to know, there are features I wish were in my own: I love the profound ceremony of the Catholic Mass, the approachability of God in the prayers of the Evangelicals, the tenderness of spirit among the Pentecostals, the confident independence of the Lutherans, the ancient traditions of the Jews, unchanged through the ages, and the commitment to frequent prayer of the Muslims.

This all sounds nice (like a symphony of faiths) but it really says nothing. What I wanted to hear was Romney's final standard of authority. What assumptions will he turn to in a crisis? He said his Mormon faith didn't define him and then never told us what does!
