The Religious Piety of Mitt Romney and Samuel Adams

Watch Mitt Romney’s Religion Speech here, just don’t scroll around or you might found out what Americans really worship!

Here is what Mitt he had to say about Samuel Adams:

”Recall the early days of the First Continental Congress in Philadelphia, during the fall of 1774.  With Boston occupied by British troops, there were rumors of imminent hostilities and fears of an impending war.  In this time of peril, someone suggested that they pray.  But there were objections.  ‘They were too divided in religious sentiments’, what with Episcopalians and Quakers, Anabaptists and Congregationalists, Presbyterians and Catholics.

”Then Sam Adams rose, and said he would hear a prayer from anyone of piety and good character, as long as they were a patriot.

I did some research on Samuel Adams to try to determine if he was a man of piety and good character. I think he probably was. He failed in the brewing beer business but succeeded at selling freedom. He was much more successful after the career change.
