That is not a apology. Nice sidestep but not an apology. Nor is it an apology to the Mormons who he insulted with his comments.

An apology would be along the lines of "I am sorry I brought up questions about the tenets of your faith in an interview. It was an inappropriate remark." THAT is an apology.
