    I watched the whole of this programme and I felt the same as Mr Williams. The portrayal of the church and tone of the "journalism" was on the whole negative and distracting from the core values and morals of our religion. It could have gone in a completely different direction, one that explained more about the life of Mitt Romney (after all, that's supposedly the stimulus for the programme) and what made him different to the other Christian Republican candidates. This programme did not serve to show a well rounded account of Mitt Romney's religion but was more about going all over his past and the more controversial things about him.

    As a Latter-day Saint concerned with the accuracy of our portrayal, I agree with Mr. Williams' assessment here. However, I hope that he and Deseret Morning News readers also recognize that those same arguments apply to the topics of global warming and evolution. The scientific evidence supporting both of these is so overwhelming that, to the greater scientific community, giving "equal time" to global warming deniers and anti-evolutionists is the equivalent of giving "equal time" to flat-earthers.
