A Mormon in the White House?

I just read an
article on about Mitt Romney's bid for the 2008 presidential election. It focuses on Romney's Mormon faith and how he's bungling the portrayal of his religious beliefs to the media and to voters. At the end of the article, the writer makes an interesting remark that Mormonism may seem weird to outsiders because the religion was established so recently: "The LDS Church seems strange because it's new, which makes the human agency behind it especially palpable. In contrast, the passage of time has given the weirder aspects of other faiths a patina of sanctity."

If you're hungry for more Mormon fare, read this article in The Phoenix. It talks about the Mormon voting bloc and how it is a force that needs to be reckoned with in the upcoming elections.
