Who cares if Romney is a Mormon?

So, recently a preacher named Robert Jeffress introduced Rick Perry at something called the “Values Voters Summit”. During his remarks Jeffress criticized Mitt Romney’s religious beliefs.

Could someone please explain to me why I should care about Mitt Romney’s religious beliefs?

The last time that I checked, the President of the USA is a political leader, not a religious leader.

As long as the President doesn’t use his office to promote a particular religion or to deny others freedom of religion, the President’s religious beliefs are a private matter.

If you think that I am wrong on this issue, then tell me why.
