Happy New Year…

January 2, 2013

Comments Off on Happy New Year…

Post by Joseph M – All across America, people celebrated the end of 2012, the beginning of 2013, the love of friends and family, and the continuation of our world despite some presumably dire predictions by an ancient people; all the while, Americans with incomes between $250,000 – $450,000 popped their corks for a completely […]

Spies Like Us

November 28, 2012


Post by Joseph M – Surprisingly, I have actually been feeling a bit neglected.  During the election I expected to see several new Mormon-themed articles posted online daily; some of these articles even included references to Mormons for Obama.  So I found myself feeling slightly pleased to hear two NPR stories referencing Mormons this morning.   The first is […]

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 […]

October 30, 2012

(My original post focused on the policies of the LDS church, and included the issues around the Prop 8 election in California, which has already been more than covered […]

True (and Are We Really Still Asking this Question?)

October 24, 2012


Post by Joseph M- Dan Spindle from some Fox News affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona has an article/news piece, entitled, “Can a true Mormon vote for Obama?”  (The video is attached to the article, but don’t bother to click on it; it doesn’t seem to be working at the present.) But seriously?  My first issue is that this […]

Mormons for Obama (Again!)

October 9, 2012

1 Comment

KSL News in Utah did an interview with BYU students Hannah Wheelwright and Ben Ader – once again making the point that many Mormons will vote for Obama in November.  And of course, Hannah is sporting some really nice bumper stickers on her computer.  This kind of publicity and dedication is encouraging and energizing – especially to find this reporting on a […]

This Muslim Moment

October 3, 2012


Post by Joseph M – Let’s just admit it now and get it out of the way: Romney looked strong in tonight’s debate, and President Obama seemed  as if he didn’t want to offend anyone.  Well, the Presidential race may have gotten a little more interesting – especially because the undecided voters (those who tend […]

This picture appeared on an Italian language news site!  Kelly, one of our own, was at a rally in Virginia representing Mormons for Obama!  She is proudly wearing her “Mormons for Obama” t-shirt.  This shirt, by the way, is available on CafePress.com. And Kelly wasn’t even aware she had ended up on a news site – she just knew […]

Dr. Gregory Prince: Mitt Romney Is Not the Face of Mormonism

September 20, 2012


Post by Rob T. Wednesday, in the Huffington Post, LDS historian and author Dr. Gregory Prince wrote a piece that, in some ways, I’ve been waiting to appear since Governor Romney said we should “double Guantanamo” back in May of 2007. The newly revealed remarks dismissing 47% of the country (including many Mormons), prompted Dr. […]
