Analysis: The unexpected evangelical silence on Mitt’s Mormonism


< Previous Page


"It is more helpful to call Mormons another religion, distinct from biblical or historic Christianity, as just about everyone from Catholics to Methodists to Baptists have clearly stated," Stetzer notes. "It’s a different religion that uses the same words to describe very different things."

In the 2012 presidential race, "very different" doesn’t seem to matter very much at all. And that — regardless of whether Romney wins in November — may be the most important legacy of America’s Mormon moment.
