Mitt Romney cannot spend his time at speeches discussing doctrinal issues within the church. He has to focus on the issues of the country. We as members, however, have the opportunity to do this, and I believe that many of us are engaged in defending the church against misrepresentations, lies, and myths.
However, I do think that focusing on his role as a bishop and stake president can help him. These are callings that offer an opportunity to help the less fortunate, the sick and afflicted, and to help people with emotional and spiritual concerns. I have found other articles about Romney's time as a Bishop and Stake Pres. that show a different side of the man running for President of the United States.
I think, for the most part, the church welcomes honest questions from non-members and the media. We should be able and given the courtesy to define ourselves and not be defined by others.
