Romney pledges to 'keep God in his heart'

When the Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody observed that the phrase "God-given" was removed from the Democratic party's platform, a firestorm of condemnation was ignited — even though, as Brody pointed out, there was language about faith and religion in the platform.  President Obama reportedly personally intervened to re-insert the God language back into the platform,  The Huffington Post writes, and there were boos and dissent about re-inserting the God language by delegates at the Democratic party convention.

In response to this, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney pledged while campaigning in Virginia to "keep God in his heart."

"That pledge says 'Under God.'  I will not take God out of the name of our platform," he told a cheering crowd which stood in ovation for his remarks (see Reuters video embedded below).  "I will not take God off our coins and I will not take God out of my heart."

    Over 60 years ago "God" wasn't in the pledge and had not been since the pledge was created. It's really crazy and Romney sounds like he's headed for a coronary.
