I was Mormon before it was cool.

Glenn Beck is a Mormon.

Michael Otterson is the head of Public Affairs for the Church, and some time after my previous screed regarding Glenn Beck (and after I found out that everyone but me was well aware of his religious affiliations), I read Brother Otterson’s article written for The Washington Post, “Mormon Voices in the Public Square and What to Make of Them”. The article can be viewed here:

I’ve consistently been very impressed with the job Otterson is doing in Public Affairs, and his writing, whether in editorials for the Washington Post, or in official statements from the Church, has always seemed to me to be eminently reasonable and excellently written. I admire him a great deal for his facility with words, and found his fair treatment of Beck in the aforementioned article quite reassuring.

So, no hard feelings.

About Me

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am also, among other things, Canadian. If you've never heard of Mormons, you could do a lot worse than to watch this video. It's ten minutes long, and you'll come out the other end knowing more about Mormons than 90% of the population.

This website does not reflect the views of, and is in no way endorsed by, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the frequently inane opinions expressed on this site are the proprietor's alone. Please don't judge the Church by the ramblings of this dummy.
