Interesting Trasncript

I just read through this very lengthy transcript of a discussion called "Mormonism and Democratic Politics: Are They Compatible?" It's basically a gathering of some of the nations "leading journalists" having a discussion with Richard Bushman, an emeritus professor at Columbia University and a rather prolific Mormon historian, about Mormonism and politics. Bushman is a practicing Mormon and happens to be in our Stake here in NYC. I've heard him speak on a couple occasions and needless to say, he's kinda smart.

Here's the link to the transcript: http://pewforum.org/events/?EventID=148.

It's very lengthy, but if definitely goes through a lot of questions people have about Mormons, particularly in lieu of Mitt Romney presidential campaign. Enjoy.

  1. Thanks for the link, it only took me forever to read :)

    I really enjoyed Bushman's historical perspective and how it grounds the modern faith. What interesting questions from the other members of the media.
