Second Article on President Gordon B. Hinckley, Prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Excerpt
This experience, known as the First Vision by Smith's followers, ultimately gave the world a new faith: Mormonism, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which now has more than 12 million members and, thanks to the vigorous missionary tradition started by Smith himself, is one of the fastest-growing Christian denominations in the United States.

Just wanted to share this article for those of you who have yet to see / read it.  Let's not turn this into a "Mormon Bashing" thread please.  Keep that in my other thread; it would be much appreciated!

My goodness!  I normally can't stand Newsweek, but this article actually seems pretty evenhanded.

LOL!  My wife and I also took a cheesy picture in front of the Salt Lake Temple.

That was a pretty good article. Interesting.... And like Shane333 said, I normally won't take the time
to pick up a copy of that rag unless there's absolutely nothing else to read.

I thought they would have glossed over Boggs and MO.  

Ok story, but the interview with GBH was pretty good.
