In Utah, politics is piety … right?

Rakel Davis

It’s no secret that Utah is known for a dominant religion. The state is home to roughly 2.2 million members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — about 65% of the population. Depending on where you are in Utah, the church can have a huge impact on daily life. But for some younger members of the faith, the bond between church life and political identity is becoming less and less strong.
