I think that we will grow in power and influence and be a force to be reckoned with but that it will take a few more years. We have to have a very active base, and I don't believe that the majority of the people listed on the rolls are active.

I have been reading THE AMERICAN RELIGION by Harold Bloom and I ran across an interesting statement on page 123:

"And who can believe that the Mormons ever would have turned away from the practice of Celestial Marriage, if it were not for federal pressure? No one, least of all in Salt Lake City, will be much inclined to accept a religious critic's foretellings, but I cheerfully do prophesy that some day, not too far on in the twenty-first century, the Mormons will have enough political and financial power to sanction polygamy again. Without it, in some form or other, the complete vision of Joseph Smith never can be fulfilled."

Harold Bloom writes this as an outsider. He is an unbelieving Jew, an "American gnostic." I find his statement interesting because I myself have come to the same conclusion for a number of reasons. What do you think?
