Five former ambassadors to the Vatican endorsed Mormon Mitt Romney on Saturday, according to a report by The New York Times.

Meanwhile, passed over for the distinction are Catholics Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

The endorsements could blunt attacks by religious conservatives who oppose Romney because of his religion.

"That might be especially helpful to Romney in South Carolina, even though it has only a small number of Catholics. Religious conservatives there have traditionally played a large role in the primary where tough, negative campaigning is the norm," noted the Times.
