Slate on Mormonism Perseverance

Slate has recently released an article on how Mormonism could save the USA if it were to collapse from political/social/environmental causes. Very interesting article, though he did get some simple things wrong. For example, "upon his resurrection, Jesus Christ will rule on American soil." He doesn't know that all Christians believe Jesus was already resurrected. Big miss there.

It was interesting that he used the word clannish. I think that was his kind attempt to avoid the distasteful (to us) word cultish. I like his description of us, "They are just like us, only they're always on their best behavior." I'm glad he was candid and honest without any of the incorrect, negative preconceived notions that tend to be written about us by those on the outside.
