romney-morgan.pngTonight, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) -- a leading potential 2012 Republican challenger to President Barack Obama -- was on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight. Romney was asked about same-sex marriage and how his faith affects his political views on matters relating to homosexuality.

Romney has said that he had supported "gay rights," but Morgan questioned that because of his opposition to marriage equality.

Of that, Romney responded, "The gay community changed their perspective of what they wanted," adding that he said he wouldn't support same-sex marriage. Although he opposes marriage equality, he said he supports "equal rights in employment."

On his Mormonisn, he said, "You don't begin to apply the doctrines of a religion to responsibility for guiding a nation or guiding a state."
