Not to mention the attention the LDS faith garnered from major news magazine cover stories, CNN’s Kansas City Temple tour and national interviews focusing on heaven and basketball wonder boy Jabari Parker. And that’s only a sampling.
Perhaps more than ever before, the nation is taking note of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The media certainly have. Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy has people asking questions and researching the Mormon faith. Many are perusing the church’s mormon.org website — chatting online with missionaries, looking over LDS foundational beliefs, watching video profiles of Mormons from all walks of life, reading the “Why I believe” stories of thousands more, and even looking up places to attend worship services.
