7. Bizarre indeed. Cult.
I never had any particularly strong feelings either way about the Mormons; I thought the whole "angel Moroni" thing bizarre, but live and let live.

Except they are now mobilizing their religion in a single-minded political pursuit of controlling others, and beating down others. This, I cannot accept. They can preach all they want; hell, even Fred Phelps can do that. But to underwrite entire political campaigns as they did with Prop 8 is just not acceptable. They claim it wasn't the church that funded Prop 8, it was the members. Who were, of course, told to do so by the church.


Pull their tax-exempt status.
