Let’s Talk About Sects, Baby.

With the presidential primary season underway, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has become a hot topic.

There are two candidates who are Mormon, and their faith has come under attack from some Evangelical Christians.

Let’s talk about Mormonism.

Here are the questions that are on my mind:

How can we interrogate our own faith through a discussion of Mormonism?

How does faith relate to the realm of politics?

How do we create insiders and outsiders through religion and politics?  What are the effects of those categories?

Here is the main site for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Here is a Frontline special about Mormons.

Here is a Daily Show take on the subject.

See you on Sunday.
