Philo's hiatus won't stop the Mitt Romney links.

I seem to have run out of time to write for the blog these days, and can't quite tell when I'll have it back again. Like all Mormonism-watchers everywhere, though, I'm fascinated by the chatter about Mitt Romney's big speech later today about religion. I'd love to have time to write up what I think about Mormons in political office -- as a post-Mormon liberal who spent his young adulthood in Utah, it's not his Mormonism but rather his recently-embraced conservatism that troubles me about Romney -- but you can keep up with my reading on the subject by checking out the Mitt Romney links I'm collecting at

Next: Romney's pluralism tolerates all conservative religions.

Instead of finding a thoughtful, well-written review of Romney's 'Mormon' speech, I simply encounter links. :( Darn!

This is one of the very best sites of its kind!

I've been blogging about Mitt (once a compilation of some media coverage of his Mormonism and then today I wrote about his speech). As a "post-Mormon" like you, I would definitely have to agree that there's another way for Mormons besides the way he's going. He's giving Mormons a bad name, particularly with his speech yesterday.

This debate is not reaching Europe, where only Giuliani gets mentioned as a likely Republican candidate, but some of the things that people are saying remind me of what was said about JFK and his Catholic faith. Being a Mormon should be irrelevant for holding office in America or any other democratic country.
