Vai Sikahema Out to Dispel Mormon Myths

NBC 10 sports director reminds us there are Mormons of all shapes and sizes

The Scoop’s noticed an awful lot of Mormon myth-busting chatter lately, which he assumed was all funded by Mitt Romney (or maybe David Archuleta). Now NBC 10’s Vai Sikahema has a piece in the Desert News about how most people don’t think there are any non-white Mormons. Sikahema’s a Mormon and says he “secretly revels” in surprising people with his religion. “It happens when I’m knocking on strangers’ doors with the missionaries. I’m a local celebrity in the Philadelphia area and though many people know I’m LDS, I can instantly see the surprise on people’s faces that I’m standing on their doorstep with a young, white, Mormon missionary.”
