Mormons! Mormons! Everywhere!

Lots of political/Mormon news this week from both major US parties. Mormon Democrats plan to make an appearance in Charlotte, and Mitt Romney will more openly embrace his Mormonism at the Republican convention in Tampa. Wild.

McKay Coppins goes to church with Mitt Romney, then Mitt Romney goes and eats coffee ice cream. WE ARE SO CONFUSED.

How do we give Mormon women greater roles and responsibilities in the Church? Some Salt Lake Tribune writers have a few ideas, most of which involve bankruptcy (Al’s opinion).

President Monson turns 85! Swedes everywhere rejoice!

Some assorted fun: Emily Maynard goes to Church; Utah tops in the nation in charitable giving; race is still a problem in the Church; Brigham City Temple open house starts; Tijuana Temple ground broken; former kidnapped Russian missionaries reunite.

…and Tumblr has a delightful little post full of Mormon memes.
