The Mormon Church - dysfunctional and manipulative?
I think it is a good time to think about what Mormonism is, when a member of that faith is running for President.
I really didn't know a thing about Mormonism, and I'm not setting out here to 'bash them'. I decided to look-up information on the internet about the church., and though I won't ever be close enough to the LDS Church to assess whether or not it is dysfunctional, the non-biased information that I read did lead me to think it is an opportunistic and manipulative organization that exercises far more control over it's members than I thought any American would accept.
I wasn't planning to address this question to you folks on EP, but then I read a news report today about a group of Mormons who gathered in Utah for a small demonstration coinciding with their having submitted letters of resignation to the church, which is a requirement of the church for any members who want to be removed from the membership list.
