Life as a Mormon Progressive

Don’t judge a book by its societally given label. Even Marie Osmond opposed Prop 8.

Michael Paulson talks about his unique experiences in the Boston Globe:

“Many Mormon Democrats, such as me, experience frustration that we’re not fully accepted into the Mormon Church tribe…Many of our fellow church members see us as apostates…Utah Mormons still ask the question, ‘Can a good Mormon be a Democrat?’ At times we progressive Mormons feel like we’re not just a different tribe, but we’re living on separate planets. The gap that divides us can seem quite unfathomable.”
