I never heard Romney mentioned over the pulpit, but I’m not surprised in happened in some locations. It was certainly hinted at by some commenters in GD lessons in my neck of the woods.]]>
My favorite part of the last few years has been the rising voices from indy Mormon Scholars like Matt Bowman or JBrooks – which seems to also have had a positive effect on Mormon Studies and the increased exposure we have to the complexities of our history and doctrine. For example, Bottgate was actually a very good thing for us and it would not have happened IMO without the scrutiny.
My least favorite part was, of course, the mentions of Brother Romney over the pulpit in prayers and testimonies. (only when I left town though, did this happen)]]>
