This is an excellent talk that addresses issues of religion that affect the nation at large, and details some of the basic tenets of belief held by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was especially interested to read the following (in light of my own experiences in talking to many others about religion):
"...On the subject of religion Americans in general are “deeply religious” but “profoundly ignorant.” For example, 68% said they prayed at least several times a week, and 44% said they attended religious services almost every week. At the same time, only half could name even one of the four Gospels, most could not name the first book of the Bible, and 10% thought Joan of Arc was Noah’s wife."
