Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 6/6: The Environment

November 1, 2012


Post by Randy Astle – We’re now on the cusp of election day and unfortunately time won’t allow me to do as deep a dive into Mormonism and environmentalism as I’ve done on my other topics.

Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 5/6: Social Issues

October 31, 2012

Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 2/6: Measuring the Man

September 17, 2012
