Author Meets Critic: The Mormon Question

While many Latter-day Saints know about polygamy and its importance in Mormon doctrine and history, few know about its effects on the world outside of Mormonism. As Sarah Barringer Gordon writes, polygamy had a profound influence on constitutional law and political theory that left a powerful legacy on religious life, that is, “Americans are free to believe, but they may well not be free to act on their beliefs.” Panelists will discuss her book, The Mormon Question.
