Prerequisites

Before I begin discussing the topics which have come into the public forum as the result of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, I thought it would be helpful to discuss two topics to help you understand Mormonism: the Priesthood of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

It has been really interesting to get a clearer picture of what y'all believe. I think a lot of people's discomfort with Mormonism is not just how different it seems to them but also that they know very little about it. I think that if more people knew what even their own mainstream denominations believed they would be just as startled as when they learn about the Mormon faith. It is easy to come down on groups who are very thorough and specific in educating their members in their beliefs, but I really respect the high regard in which they clearly hold them and the amount of thought and consideration that goes into that.

All that just to say that so long as you keep writing, I'll keep reading! (I secretly enjoy this learning experience to the ones I ought to be having with my cases....)

Hello, you don't know me but I'm a future Baylor law student and also member of the Church. I have a wonderful little family as well and I was wondering if I could contact you with some questions we have about Waco, the School, and the LDS community. We start in the Summer and all of us are super excited (especially my three year old, we told her there's a zoo in Waco.)

Thanks, we would really appreciate any advice you could give us.

I'm also enjoying reading your blog, keep it up!
