When Glenn Beck talks about the Constitution "hanging by a thread," is he making reference to a Mormon myth that tells of the day when the Latter Day Saints will ride in "on a white horse" and save America? Columnist Dana Milbank thinks so. Whether it is true or not, the theory is an effective way to undercut Beck's authority with the large numbers of Protestants and Evangelicals in his audience. Those groups may mistrust proselytizing liberals, but they mistrust proselytizing Mormons even more. [HuffPo]
