Mormon presidential candidates, unprecedented media exposure and celebrating the 75th anniversary of the church welfare program were among the list of noteworthy Latter-day Saint-related events of 2011. The bright spotlight on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including scrutiny of presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman Jr., "The Book of Mormon" Broadway musical and the "I'm a Mormon" campaign, placed the church in a new, unique position. Also notable was news of the church's 75th anniversary of the welfare program and service outreach.

What qualifies an event as an "LDS Event"?

Neither Mitt Romney's Presidential campaign, nor Jimmer's or Archuletta's "fame" are official Church events in any way, shape or form.

Just because a person on the records of the LDS Church does something does not make it an "LDS Event".


Why is it the SLC lds feels the need to self promote, Christian churches don't do that.


Good list... I'm not sure why people are complaining
