The Question

Authored by: Lowell Brown at 11:29 am, November 23rd 2007

Readers of this blog will frequently see us referring to something called “The Question.”   What does that mean? 

Simply put, The Question is:  Can a Mormon be elected president?

As you will see, we think The Question should not even be asked.  We recognize, of course, that it is asked, and often; and that nothing we write here will stop that.  Even so, we’d like to help people think about that issue a little differently.
