Kansas City Faith Blogger Shares Praise For Sen. Mitt Romney Opposition To Prez Trump
Singular opposition from Sen. Mitt Romney has exposed a rift not in the Republican party but among the American public.
A few headlines for context:

The Senator's historic remark:
"But my promise before God to apply impartial justice required that I put my personal feelings and biases aside. Were I to ignore the evidence that has been presented, and disregard what I believe my oath and the Constitution demands of me for the sake of a partisan end, it would, I fear, expose my character to history’s rebuke and the censure of my own conscience."
At the conclusion of his latest post . . .
Kansas City Blogger Bill Tammeus Writes: "In the end, it's hard in such circumstances to be absolutely certain of the divine will. Beware of people who tell you they know that will in all cases. Romney also was willing to speak of his faith directly when he addressed the Senate after the acquittal vote on Wednesday, saying, "I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am." Wouldn't you like to hear from senators on both sides of the aisle what is at the heart of who they are?"
