I am not personally religious in any dogmatic way, but Gordon Stewart says what I think many of us feel, regardless of religious persuasion. We may not have a specific religion, but that does not mean we do not believe in honor and justice. There is a place for anger, a place for standing up to wrong, and a time to say NO.
MITT ROMNEY’S ACT OF CONSCIENCE
Mitt Romney’s speech as a Senator-juror in the impeachment came as a surprise because he broke with his party’s ranks, and because he appealed to conscience and religion. No Senator-juror in the history of impeachment had stepped out of line from the party line. Citing the seriousness of the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Mr. Romney explained his reasons for voting to convict the president:
As a Senator-juror, I swore an oath, before God, to exercise “impartial justice.” I am a profoundly religious person. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential. I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the president, the leader of my own party, would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong.
Senate Mitt Romney (R), February 5, 2020
