Why Evangelicals Oppose Mormonism

Never more than this presidential election season has the stark opposition of many evangelical Christians to the LDS faith received more attention in the national press. Yet, the reasons for that opposition are unclear to many people, and for that reason I suspect that many people in the public are confused about that most basic of questions about Mormonism: "Are Mormons Christian?"

In my latest piece on the Yahoo Contributor Network, I hope to bring some clarity to this issue. It is titled, "Why Evangelicals Oppose Mormons: Word Games and Fear." Them's strong words -- but, I dare say, accurate ones. And it's no picnic being called a cultist, either -- something that many evangelicals say every day, concerning up to one-quarter of the American population.
