Romney Campaign Launches New Ad on Religion

Thursday, 09 Aug 2012 11:17 AM

By Newsmax Wires

The Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee released a new ad Thursday, focusing on freedom of religion.

“Who shares your values?” the narrator begins. “President Obama used his healthcare plan to declare war on religion, forcing religious institutions to go against their faith. Mitt Romney believes that’s wrong.”



Then Romney enters the piece, saying, “In 1979 a son of Poland, Pope John Paul II, spoke words that would bring down an empire [the Soviet empire] — be not afraid."

Video in the ad shows the Pope meeting then-Polish labor leader — and later Polish president — Lech Walesa. And then it shows Romney meeting Walesa last month, when the Polish icon endorsed the Republican candidate.

“When religious freedom is threatened whom do you want to stand with?” the narrator concludes.
