Ken Jennings on Mormonism

From a recent piece in the Daily News:

This is a strange season to be a Mormon. During my lifetime, I thought the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had effectively mainstreamed itself. Being a Mormon was like being Canadian, or a vegetarian, or a unicyclist – it made you a bit of a conversation piece at dinner, but you didn’t come in for any lip-curling scorn.

Now, thanks to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, I can read anti-Mormon screeds almost every day, both from the secular left and the evangelical right. Latter-day Saints are either a gullible joke or a satanic menace (or, if one can handle the cognitive dissonance, both).
