The Evangelicalization of Senator Chris Buttars
It's true Utah politics is dominated by social conservatives. It is, however, a political ideology that seems to be fairly specific to our little corner of the world. In the intelligent design fight, Senator Buttars and the Utah Eagle Forum have taken their cue from the evangelical conservative movement. This may frighten away some conservative Mormon politicians because almost without knowing how or why, Mormons have found their way onto the Evangelical "Going to Hell" list. So, why should Mormon conservatives go to bed with a political movement that won't respect them in the morning?
