Being a Mormon convert I have to say that the misinformation swirling around the LDS faith is staggering From outside the church, the attacks most of the time are centered on hyperbole about things that are out of date (polygamy...), simply not accurate (not a church that follows Christ, not caring for those outside of the church...) or a huge distortion (secret agendas, hating gay people...). The really interesting thing that within the church the management of church history and revisionist history lesson manuals has left most members with another set of misinformation: for LDS members the history most of the time is centered on hyperbole about things that are scrubbed clean (word of wisdom...), simply not accurate (that the Prophet can't lead the church astray in doctrine--some Brigham Young's teaching...) or a huge distortion (blacks priesthood ban until 1978...). The funny thing is that in my former faith, Catholic I could clone the statements above cite similar examples. In fact. the secular world has much of the same--e.g. think about American history that most embrace versus the true history: A country founded on freedom, unless you were a black or indian... The world is complex, for example trying to explain how advanced Thomas Jefferson was in slavery attitude while owning approximately 600 slaves in his lifetime is really hard to reconcile. Analysis of Jefferson can be made more simple when one considers this: if he wasn't so married to money he could have ended his own slave ownership and been a beacon of light. The same can be done for Romney and Obama. With Romney, trace back his source of power, which is not so much as a business builder but as another person from the financial sector whom is involved with moving tens of thousands of dollars from tens of millions of people so that tens of thousands of people can make tens of millions of dollars. I can't give Obama and the Dem's a pass either. They had all the branches of the government and didn't do anything to curb the damage brought on by wall street and the financial sector when they had the chance. We know who they are beholden to. So in the end, I worry about any more power going to the financial sector--they have clearly done more damage overall to the US (and world) than any other group in the past 30 years. I worry that the check's and balances will continue down the path that enable a small group get super-rich while the working public gets hit even harder. Your thoughts?
