Mormonism & American Culture

The Asia Times recently published an article by Spengler entitled "Yes, Romney, there's a Sanity Clause." The article isn't as much about Mitt Romney, who has now withdrawn from the Presidential race, as it is about Mormonism and American culture. This is a well-written article worth reading.

NPR produced the segment, "Mormon's Confront Negative Ideas About Their Faith," by Howard Berkes (Morning Edition, February 12, 2008), which is also related to Romney's campaign, but like Spengler's article, is about more than politics.

Biblical Illiteracy in America

In America, there is rampant ignorance concerning what the Holy Scripture says and a failure to interpret the text correctly in its proper context, the Orthodox Church who wrote it, compiled it into a canon, and has preserved and passed down the text with the proper interpretation for 2,000 years.

Listen to "Understanding the Gospel According to Huckabee" from NPR's All Things Considered (February 8, 2008). This story isn't just about politics. It's about biblical illiteracy.
