Name Change

Robert Siegel speaks with Mike Otterson, spokesman for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, about the greater emphasis the church will put on having people refer to the religion as The Church of Jesus Christ, rather than the Mormon Church. It is still OK to call members "Mormons". The Church is timing the emphasis to next year's winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and is designed to remind the public the that they are a Christian Church.
