The evening news in Utah
Besides the free stacks of Book of Mormon at the entrance of many businesses, it’s easy to forget that Utah’s population is predominantly Mormon. Until you turn on the news, anyway. There were long news features on the selection process for “apostles being called” and “tabernacle trivia” for the kids between commercial breaks. The anchors used the phrase “The Church,” an expression I’d only heard used by Catholics. To be fair, there was a big religious convention in Salt Lake City this past weekend, so what I saw might not have been normal. I just chalked it up to another different world that I got to see.
