David Campbell examines the current state of religious observance and interfaith relationships in the United States and how it has changed over the past fifty years. Professor Campbell used slides during his presentation, in which he specifically focused on the reaction to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Mormonism and presented his thoughts on what it says about religious tolerance today. He responded to questions from members of the audience at the University of Southern California.
“Is This the Mormon Moment? Will Mitt Romeny be the Mormons' JFK?” was part of the Elizabeth and Robert Plumleigh Lecture Series “Religion in a Time of Politics.” It was held at the USC Davidson Conference Center. close
