"ABC's new reality show 'Expedition Impossible' to feature two LDS
contenders"I thought this was going to be about a Mormon truly
being accepted by the intolerant religious right of the GOP.
As Mormons, it is almost a cultural thing to tick off the list of
"famous" Mormons or Mormons who are in the spotlight if even for a
moment. And I think that is pretty natural particularly for a minority group
like us Mormons.But it has made me wonder if there is some kind of a
litmus test a famous Mormon must pass in order to be on the list? More than half
the Mormons by name are no longer active. So does one have to be active? How
active? How would someone putting together an article like this know? Why didn't you mention Bentley from the Bachelorette? He is a BYU grad and at
least a Mormon by name. He did an obviously poor job of represetning any faith
let alone Mormons in his few weeks on the show. Is that part of the standard of
making the he/she is a Mormon list? Many athletes and entertainers fit into the
Mormon by name but nothing more criteria. Romney and Huntsman may be a high
profile example of this. I don't know Huntsman's level of activity but it at
least appears to be different than Romney's.
