Re meetings of evangelicals and LDS ("Baptist's BYU visit marks thaw in Mormon-evangelical cold war," Tribune, Oct. 30):

Surprise! Surprise! These old white guys and the religious institutions they represent all have much in common. Both organizations and most of their adherents share similar attitudes towards full rights for women and for gay people.

This seems like a relationship made in heaven, er, possibly the Celestial Kingdom.

Oh, yeah, and aren't these the same people who are the major suppoorters of the tea party? Even the tea party's own Ted Cruz has a father who is an evangelical minister.

Guess it truly is a "Small, Small World After All."
