However, the most recent installment "Can a Mormon win evangelical support?" by Times writer Gregory Rodriguez may signal a change. Rodriguez explains why he thinks Dr. James Dobson was wrong when he recently said he didn't think large numbers of Evangelicals would vote for a Mormon.
In a recent radio interview, prominent evangelical activist James Dobson said that Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's Mormon faith "could pose a serious obstacle" if he decided to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008. Dobson said he thought that conservative Christians wouldn't feel comfortable casting a ballot for a Mormon.
Chances are, he's wrong.
It's not the most doctrinally accurate piece I've ever read, but it is a move in the right direction for the LA Times.
