It would be almost funny, like a Saturday Night Live or Jon Stewart Daily Show skit, if it wasn't the practice and beliefs of a man who might be running this country in a few months. Especially the "establishment of Zion" in the U. S.
It reminds me of Scientology, another home grown "religion" with secret beliefs and rituals and determined to take over the country. The thing they seem to have in common tactically as well, is that both Mormonism and Scientology believe its okay to lie in order to gain power.
What is most disturbing to me is that all these rightwing Republicans who claim to be Christians, especially the fundamentalists, don't seem to care that Mormonism replaces their Bible with their own Book of Mormon and basically refutes most of what Christians believe. But clearly, these same rightwinger Republicans would rather have a lying leader of an obvious religious cult that goes against most of what they claim to believe in than an African-American moderate Christian in the White House.
