Dear LC community,

Many journalists have suggested that Mitt Romney’s successful presidential candidacy is evidence that Mormonism has become integrated into American society in a way never seen before. But I think that the “Twilight” saga’s runaway popular success is actually earlier and better evidence of Mormonism’s integration into mainstream US culture. Check out a my blog post about this and decide for yourself:
