Latter-day Saint Gordon B. Hinckley Reaches End of Days

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

President Gordon B. Hinckley of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints died this evening. He was 97.

He began his career in the 1930s as a missionary defending the faith on a soapbox in London's Hyde Park and lived to see the country's first viable Mormon candidate for president. Through it all, Hinckley worked tirelessly to gain acceptance for his church on the world's stage.

"We are not a weird people," Hinckley told Mike Wallace in a 1995 "60 Minutes" interview.
