One year before Americans head to the polls for the 2012 presidential election, nearly 20 percent of the population admitted they would not vote for a Mormon.
The Utah State University Religious Studies Program will screen a film, The Religious Test, that explores this phenomenon Tuesday Oct. 2 in the Veterinary Science Building, Room 130, on USU’s Logan campus. The public is invited. The screening and question and answer session runs from 5:15 to 7 p.m. The filmmakers will be on hand for the discussion.
Independent filmmakers Trevor Hill and Michael Potter produced the documentary to explore why one in five Americans say they won’t support a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the nation’s top office.
“The Religious Test” is an attempt by Hill and Potter to explore religious intolerance in contemporary America. Both attended college at Utah universities and signed on to explore historical bias against Mormon political candidates after a 2011 Gallup poll revealed the public’s wariness to vote for a Mormon president.

Monday, we’re broadcasting live from the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah, where we’ll be discussing a wide range of political issues facing Mormons during the “Mormon Moment.” Twenty percent of Americans say they wouldn’t support a Mormon presidential candidate, and a new documentary called The Religious Test explores the issues informing their bias. They range from polygamy to the LDS church’s efforts to repeal California’s Proposition 8, and its historic refusal to grant blacks certain ecclesiastical privileges.
On Monday, September 17, RadioWest will be recorded before a live audience at the Hinckley Institute of Politics on the University of Utah campus during its regularly scheduled time, from 11 a.m. to noon Mountain. The public is invited to attend. Immediately afterwards there will be a free screening of the documentary film The Religious Test.
