Former Senator John Danforth says those who are raising questions about Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s religion are, as he puts it, “playing on the face of the U. S. Constitution.” He says those who claim they are constitutionalists should be the first to say there is no religious test for holding public office. 

Danforth has told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he has offered to help Romney’s campaign deal with those who question his fitness to serve because he’s a Mormon.

Danforth is an ordained Episcopalian priest.
