Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on how dependence on God is a crucial part of effective social change. Romney spoke to members of the civil rights organization Wednesday at their annual convention in Houston.

Every good cause on this earth relies in the end on a plan bigger than ours. 

“Without dependence on God”  as Dr. King said  “our efforts turn to ashes and our sunrises into darkest night.  Unless his spirit pervades our lives, we find only what G. K. Chesterton called <<cures that don’t cure, blessings that don’t bless, and solutions that don’t solve>>.  Of all that you bring to the work of today’s civil rights cause, no advantage counts for more than this abiding confidence in the name above every name.  Against cruelty, arrogance, and all the foolishness of man, this spirit has carried the NAACP to many victories.   More still are up ahead, and with each one we will be a better nation”.
