Romney Clueless on Secularism

Mitt Romney:
“I think there is a desire to establish a religion in America known as secularism.”

My guess is Romney has no idea what secularism is.  

sec·u·lar·ism (from Dictionary.com)

secular  spirit or tendency, especially a system of political or social philosophy that rejects all forms of religious faith and worship.
the view that public education and other matters of civil policy should be conducted without the introduction of a religious element.
  Secularism is the absence of religion. The first Amendment of the US Constitution declares that:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
That sounds as a clear an endorsement of secularism as I've ever seen.  We all know how clueless and awkward Romney has been on the campaign trail, but this level of ignorance by a presidential candidate would have been unprecedented, but, of course, we had Sarah Palin in 2008.
