Sites offer background for journalists on Mormonism

With the recent news about presidential candidate Mitt Romney and whether Mormonism is really Christianity, some reporters may not want to wade into theology in a story. But don’t be shy. Two websites that give quality information about religion are ReligionLink (see 9.30 post below) and BeliefNet.

Beliefnet features this slide show on its website.

The current opening page for ReligionLink has the current controversy front and center, but when it’s replaced by another story,  just search this site for “Mormon” or “Latter Day Saint.”

Beliefnet has a full page on Latter Day Saints and a multimedia segment addressing the current topic in the news — whether Mormons are Christians (see graphic at right).

Use these two sites for other stories about religion, faith and tradition. They are quality sources.
