WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney sat in the Wolfeboro Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Sunday as, one by one, members of his congregation credited him for bringing the faith more into the public eye.

The first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party was credited with helping shine a positive light on the church.

Among those testifying was J.W. "Bill" Marriott, the chairman of Marriott International.

Many Americans have long viewed Mormonism skeptically, and the Salt Lake City-based church has fought for decades for recognition and acceptance.
