Following speculation on how Governor Romney would or wouldn’t address his religion, his team called upon one of his LDS homeboys to endorse the one-time president of the Boston Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Mitt taught faith in God, self-reliance and service to humanity,” said Grant Bennett, Romney’s successor as president of the Boston Stake.

In 1978, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints rescinded its ban on ordaining black men to the priesthood.
