Mormon Moment? Yes. Mormon Bubble? No.
Daniel Peterson, Deseret News
A common claim during this "Mormon Moment," in opinion columns and elsewhere, is that Mormons live in a bubble. Most specifically, Mormonism is said to have isolated a certain current presidential candidate from "real life" (during his missionary service, for example).
So I've been reflecting upon my own experience, and on how my faith has — or hasn't — insulated me from the Real World.
