Republican Mitt Romney is the first mormon Pastor to be elected as a presidential candidate.
American people discriminated against president Obama religion as a Christan and destroyed his Pastor Rev. Wright reputation by demonizing him in the press. How dare you Republicans use religion superiority to up hold Romney religion and attack president Obama religion.
A: The history of the Latter-day Saints is intertwined with settlement of the American West. The earliest church members were hounded from region to region by outsiders angered by Mormon beliefs and the past support for polygamy, which the church renounced in 1890. After Smith was assassinated in 1844 by a Missouri mob, church leaders and members fled west. They eventually sought refuge in what was then the unsettled Salt Lake Valley. The church now has more than 14.4 million members worldwide, but its headquarters remain in Utah.
