Hatch Victim of Evangelical Prejudice
(The Reliable Source)
Washington Post pgC03 14Apr00 A2
By Lloyd Grove with Beth Berselli

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The anti-Mormon bias of the Christian music establishment even extends to the famous and powerful, such as Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who has received some notariety for the songs he has written. In spite of his name recognition and conservative politics, the Christian music industry isn't interested.

According to the Washington Post's Grove, Hatch asked friend and colleague Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) to get his nephew, Bobby Shriver, to find a distributor for his music into the Christian music market. Shriver reported back, according to Hatch's complaint to the National Journal, that "distribution outlets won't take anything done by Mormons, 'cause they don't think they're Christians."
