"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is on track to grow in a way that will change the religious complexion of the United States, social scientist and LDS convert Mark Koltko-Rivera says.
This so-called "Mormon moment" in U.S. culture — when everything from the presidential race to Broadway's award-winning musical features Mormons — is about "to morph into the Saints' century," Koltko-Rivera predicts.
