Is the Mormon moment finally over? Find out here.

On the complexities of Mormon identities, being a gay Mormon, and going from being a missionary to playing one on a stage.

On the intersection of politics and religion when it comes to popular opinion.

  2. Saskia,

    I’ve maintained for several years and I’m actually looking at giving it to someone who will keep it updated. The folks at Juvenile Instructor have likely benefited the most (besides reporters who cover such things) and I’d like to know if you or anyone you know would like to provide that service to the Mormon Studies community. Otherwise I’m likely to let it slide into obscurity.
