Mormonism Grows in Catholic Northeast
A Reuters story reveals that Mormonism is growing in a heavily Catholic region of the country. Story here. One reason given is the sex abuse scandals by Catholic clergy. That is pretty ironic since some Mormons practice polygamy which is really pedophilia masquerading as marriage given that many 2nd and subsequent "wives" are young teenage girls.
What does make Mormonism attractive is its strict moral code, emphasis on a clean cut personal appearance and the importance placed on the family. Come to think of it those were things that used to be said about the Catholic Church back in the 1950s. That would be before the Springtime of Vatican II, for those who are on the look out for the fruits of the Council. Keep looking. Let us know when you find some.
