Best "Hey, Look at this!"

Noah Feldman was the superstar young professor at NYU when I was there, apparently he's at Harvard now. He was an expert on law and religion and a super-brain that everyone idolized. Anyway, this weekend's NY Times had a big article he wrote called "What is it about Mormonism?" I think you'll like it...

Link.

It's a good little article, but I've got something even neater for you now. It's Feldman giving the keynote address from a conference on Mormonism & Politics at Princeton.

See?

By the way, the artice and video? Romney-related, Romney-inspired, of course.

That was a good article and mirrors my own thoughts on Mormonism. One thing that puzzled me though is that he says Mormons reject caffeine- that's just not true!

Seriously. That guy thinks he's so smart but fails to grasp the issue that nearly divides our church asunder.

You're telling me- the amount of people that I have to explain to that Mormons do and can have caffeine is astonishing. Well, I do live in a tea-drinking country after all...

Don't worry guys, Anonymous is always saying that sort of thing.

Had I my druthers, this blog would feature 5 times as many interesting articles to read and 10 times as many pictures of food.

Meh, I thought it was an okay article. I don't like the pontificating of "The church will probably become more mainstream by 'revelation' wink-wink if Mitt loses."

Mormons...so many secrets we're like a bad Nicholas Cage action movie.

Couple of thoughts:

I like the moderator’s voice, sounds like David Sedaris.

Love the shout out to Jews and Mormons kickin’ it at Harvard.

Qway zi?! Now that the common man knows what quasi means, quasi (qway zi) is the intellectual and discerning pronunciation? Why are the intellectuals keeping this secret?
