Mormons!

Sfjello

Scott Horton reviews the PBS series here; Bob Novak reviews an upcoming movie about the Mountain Meadows Massacre here; Martin Marty writes about the mainstreaming of the LDS church here. I watched both nights of the PBS series and must say it struck me as an exemplary piece of public broadcasting: very fair, very candid, very informative. After watching it, I see no reason why a Mormon should not be president of the United States, and think Romney is currently the most plausible GOP nominee, even if it means stocks in Jello soar.
