New York Times columnist Timothy Egan wrote last week of former U.S. Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman's prospects in the Republican presidential primaries: "Were he a Jew, a woman, a Catholic or a black, Huntsman would not face the kind of suspicion that the Republican electorate has for Mormons." Mitt Romney, he says, will face the same kind of skepticism from evangelical Christians. So why does this persist? Is it important? Can members of the LDS Church overcome this unofficial religious test?
