The Mormon religion has been in the news with increasing frequency in recent years for a number of reasons.

The television show Big Love, which aired on HBO for five seasons, is one of the major reasons for increased interest in the religion, as well, even though leaders of the official church were not generally pleased with the program. This is because Big Love portrayed the lives of a family engaged in a polygamous lifestyle
