Controlling passion

... In the 2008 presidential campaign, this still remains true. Listen, for example, to Barack Obama:

"My Bible tells me that if we train a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not turn from it.
So I think faith and guidance can help fortify ... a sense of reverence that all young people should have for the act of sexual intimacy."

Mitt Romney fit snugly into the same mold. He started his widely-heralded statement on religion by talking about a time when "our nation faced its greatest peril", a threat to "the survival of a free land".

Was he talking about terrorism? No. He immediately went on to warn that the real danger comes from "human passions unbridled".
