Mormons praise Romney for raising church's profile

Mormon churchgoers praised Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for raising the faith’s profile over the course of his race to the White House.

Romney, who would be the first Mormon president if he wins the November 6 election, attended a service with his wife Ann at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire on Sunday where members hailed the former Massachusetts governor's performance at the Republican National Convention (RNC) held in Tampa, Florida last week.

Mormonism is still treated with suspicion by many Americans, particularly the Evangelical Christians, who make up nearly half of the Republican Party’s voters.

The Mormon Church has an estimated 7 million members in the United States.

It is based on the belief that the religion's founder, Joseph Smith, discovered golden tablets in 1827 in the state of New York claimed to be left behind by ancient Israelites.
