The Huffington Post: “Mormons’ Consciences Have Put White Evangelicals To Shame”

As the 2016 election looms nearer, many national outlets are taking notice of many Mormons going against the grain. This week, The Huffington Post wrote an op-ed praising members of the Church for their moral consciences during this election season. An excerpt from the article reads:

If the test of the moral courage of a religious movement is how they stand for their values when there is an opportunity to abandon them for political expediency, then Mormons have passed the test thus far in 2016. They have been the Moral Minority. They are the Daniels, the Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednegos, the Esthers of this election season, who have refused the idolatry and apostasy that Trump embodies in his gilded insanity. While Evangelicals may still quibble with Mormons about theology and scripture and history, they should take a lesson from Mormons’ righteous backbone while there is still time.
