Back in 2007 we had a fascinating discussion on Mormonism and Politics involving the media and Richard Bushman. Now in 2012, the next election cycle, Boston College has sponsored a fascinating panel discussion involving Kristine Haglund (editor of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, and blogger at By Common Consent. Parenthetically, one of my "favorite posts from other blogs" listed on my right sidebar is her "The Liturgy of Jello"). Both she and religion professor Stephen Prothero participate in an insightful discussion on Mormonism and politics. The hour watching this on C-SPAN is an hour well spent.
