I’ve attended numerous scholarly conferences where Mormonism has been discussed, and it is amazing to confront snide and disdainful comments and even overt prejudice from intellectually and sophisticated academics.
What is wrong with talking about Mormonism when talking about Mitt Romney and his run for the Presidency? On CNN last Sunday, David Axelrod, President Obama’s strategist, promised that his campaign did not consider Romney’s faith “fair game.” The...
Long before the days of YouTube and broadband Internet, the LDS Church was sharing video content with followers around the world using technology it says is still essential to spreading a global message.
Mitt Romney hasn’t been all that comfortable, on the campaign trail, talking about what he refers to as “the faith of my fathers”—Mormonism—and his attachment to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Washington • Americans who have only passing contact with Mormons are more likely to react to negative information about Mitt Romney and his faith and less inclined to buy into the counter, pro-Mormon argument, according to a new study.

By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor Alexandria, Virginia (CNN) – A few hundred Mormons filed into a chapel just outside the Washington Beltway one recent Sunday to hear a somewhat unusual presentation: an Obama administration official...
