“Mitt Romney claimed Thursday during an interview that his opposition to same-sex marriage has nothing to do with his religious beliefs.

“‘As a society, I think we’re better off if we encourage the establishment of homes with a mother and a father,’ Romney told KETV’s Rob McCartney after a speech in Omaha.

“Asked if religion played into his opposition, Romney replied, ‘I indicated that’s based entirely upon a civil understanding of the needs of a society like our own.’

“‘So it doesn’t have any weight?’ McCartney asked.

“‘It’s not a religious decision,’ Romney said. ‘It’s based upon what I believe is right for the nation and the building of strong generations for our future.’”
