Is Romney as bad a Mormon as his associations suggest?

Mormons are absolutely anti liquor and anti gambling.(At one time Idaho had more gambling than Nevada. Mormons in the sratehouse outlawed it.) Since we are in agreement Romney is a serious Mormon, why is he accepting Adelson's booze-and-poker earnings?

1. You will find that Mormon merchants supplied pioneer wagon trains with whiskey.

They don't have any problem with selling it.

4. The Mormons helped build Vegas

They are first and foremost a for-profit (prophet?) corporation. As for not drinking or gambling, I recommend catching a ride on any of the Salt Lake-to-Wendover, NV gambling buses, and see for yourself firsthand how much of that they don't do.

So no, he's a pretty typical Mormon. In that respect anyway. Most average Mormons are decent people, though, which he is definitely not.

5. What happens in Wendover stays in Wendover

One of my troops in Berlin was a non-Mormon from SLC. He informed us that if you wanted to take a Mormon and a six-pack fishing, you took either two six-packs or two Mormons.
