Lincoln Cannon Interview on Mormonism and Politics with IEET


Lincoln Cannon, president of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, interviewed with Hank Pellissier of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology on the subject of Mormonism and politics. Two Mormons, Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney, are campaigning for President of the United States, with Romney currently favored for the nomination. In recent days their faith has been derided by some as a "cult". Although Mormonism began in America, and has over 14 million followers internationally, the average American knows little about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). In this interview, Lincoln and Hank discuss socio-political positions of the Utah-based religion. The Mormon Transhumanist Association does not endorse any political candidate or party.
