“Twilight” as evidence of the increasing integration of Mormonism

February 02, 2012

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:
