By the looks of some of the comments to your post in the A.C., it would seem the Missouri Pukes are alive, well and still looking for a fight. Interesting article. I’m a Mormon and a frequent reader of this blog, and I’m working to get my LDS friends fired up about distributism and localization. It’s a natural fit for us both temperamentally and theologically. The Mormons are still asleep, politically; even with Romney on the ticket there’s a lot of indifference. For every Mormon excited about Romney, there’s one who is anxious about the increased exposure to criticism or persecution a Mormon president would cause. Just our support for Prop 8 was cause of enough vandalism and hate. Comments are closed.
