The Mormon-Church Factor in Los Alamos

Posted: 8 Dec 11; Updated: 12 Dec 11

Peaceful Religion

Typical Sunday at Los Alamos LDS Ward (full parking lot)

I am working on a short (5-10 minute) presentation as a draft open letter to the Los Alamos community called "The Mormon-Church Factor in Los Alamos" as a subject for an upcoming forum sponsored by the Los Alamos Deep Democracy Open Forum, Inc. This is a subset to a broader "first hot topic" regarding an apparent "disconnect" between the Los Alamos County Council and county citizens.
