Reflections


Post by Joseph M – Thanksgiving is surely a great time for reflection.  Rob’s post, Michael Otterson’s guest article in the Washington Post, and this recent post by Joanna Brooks have all caused me to think on this past election season and the part that we Mormons for Obama played in it.  I am thankful […]

Mormonism Stayed off the Table: Thank You OFA and DNC


It’s hard to believe that the election ended less than two weeks ago. I didn’t post much the last few weeks of the campaign because I was knocking doors in Florida, and there’s one thing I must say: THANK YOU to Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee for keeping Governor Romney’s Mormonism and […]

At End of the Campaign


Post by Joseph M – I am still incredibly excited about last Tuesday night’s win – and I guess I’ll admit, I’ve felt no small desire to gloat.  This is partly due to the amazing amount of vitriol we’ve received in emails and comments on this website.  And now that Governor Romney has gone from that title back to Brother Romney, we’ve seen an […]

Rahm Emanuel threw up his hands and belatedly […]

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


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. Still, the protection of the environment is important enough an issue that I thought it merited its own entry. […]

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


Post by Randy Astle – As their name indicates, this is the elephant in the room for social conservatives. There’s a very large voting bloc that goes well beyond Mormonism for whom social issues, particularly perhaps abortion and now gay marriage, often take precedence over anything else. Described as “conservative family values,” these are often […]

Mormon Policies on Politics and Conscience


Guest Post by Julia Taylor; this article is cross-posted on poetrysansonions.com I am doing a series of posts on the “Mormon Moment,” on my personal blog.

Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 4/6: Economics


Post by Randy Astle – We’re in the home stretch! November 6 will be a relief, I think, to everybody. But before things end I’d like to post three more times, which will hopefully be interesting to any LDS voters who somehow aren’t decided yet. (Share! Share! Share!) I was working on this post when […]
