22. For B
I can only guess but I would think that:
1) The Mormon church very rarely gets involved in politics and prefers to be seen a non-political. Partly because of their bad history with political involvement.
So no doubt some of the church leaders don't enjoy the negative attention they're getting now for their role. People should keep it up and hold them accountable. You may not think so but it really will make some of the leadership think twice before they get this heavily involved again.

2) They know they're controversial and other groups make for a better public face.
