The Last Mormon Liberal (feat. Kristine Haglund)

Hosted by Stephen Betts. 

Partly as the church has changed, partly as the world around us has fragmented in evermore specialized and siloed categories, I think it’s really hard and probably impossible for anyone to believe as fully as England did that all of their loves can be…circumscribed by Mormonism. I think anyone who identifies as liberal or progressive politically now comes to see that as at least something that has to be carefully and thoughtfully reconciled with their Mormonism. And I don’t think England thought that reconciliation was necessary. And that’s the difference. That’s what I mean is gone. When I say he was the last Mormon liberal.
