Religion And Politics
The LDS Church has always claimed political neutrality. But that doesn't stop ambitious politicians from standing as close as possible to The Church. Hopefully The Church will make some meaningful changes to discourage this practice. That is the only way The Church will survive its members reaching the top of the political game. For example, it's absolutely inappropriate for the President of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir to be on Senator Orrin Hatch's buddy payroll. If The Church is to survive the onslaught of Gov's Romney and Huntsman, they need to shed the small time bullshit games of disrespectful small ponders like Senator Hatch and Kem Gardner and get serious. Because what happened with the Boston Globe is only the tip of the public scrutiny iceberg that will dig through every email, schedule, and phone list available. The Church needs to get smart and push politicians to arms length.
