As a follow-up to my last post, I wanted to share a very thoughtful essay that I came across. Entitled The Spiritual Roots of the Democratic Party: Why I Am a Mormon Democrat, by Todd Compton, it's an excellent summary as to why some Mormons feel that the Democratic party ideals are more in line with Gospel principles than the Republican party.
I'm under no illusions about "converting" any of you Mormon Republicans to the Democratic party, but at the very least I hope it will correct some of the myths about Mormon Democrats being rebellious, flaming radicals, or bad Mormons who don't live the principles of the Gospel.
Here's the link to the essay. Enjoy.
PS: Boyd K. Packer is a Democrat? Wow.
