They have NO separation of church and state.  We do. At least for now!

It was scary enough with Bush talking to god in the Oval Office. 
> To have this question posed to Mitt would be a catch-22 for him.  He would either say "No, not really" and that will piss off the Mormons or he would say "Yes" and that will take not only the 47% he pissed off, but maybe a few other people from the GOP to think "WTF?"
