In Paul West's recent article concerning Republican presidential candidates Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, ("Cain setback, Gingrich gain?" Nov. 30), it was stated that Mr. Gingrich "has also benefited from the persistent wariness toward Romney's Mormon faith." The true name of Mr. Romney's faith is "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (sometimes referred to as "Mormons" because of our belief in The Book of Mormon) let me state unequivocally that we recognize Jesus Christ as our savior. He is the cornerstone of our faith. This misunderstanding is perpetuated by a lack of journalistic accuracy.
