Mitt mentions 'Mormon' just once

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
Romney has said that his "Faith in America" speech would not be a JFK-like speech. In one sense, it certainly was not. Kennedy said "Catholic," his religion, 20 times in his 1960 speech on religion during his general election campaign. By contrast, Romney said "Mormon" just once.

In fact, Romney invoked other faiths by name in the speech more than his own. He said "Catholic" three times, "Jews" and "Muslims" both twice each. Romney, instead, substituted "my church," "my religion," and "my faith," which he used three times each. Kennedy also never said "Jesus" in his 1,500-word speech. Romney, on the other hand, said "Jesus" twice and "Christ" additionally once, including this, "What do I believe about Jesus Christ?  I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of mankind."
