Mr. Romneys penchant for rules mirrors that of his church, where he once excommunicated adulterers
I put that as a plus for Romney.
Your posting history indicates you are a Mitt supporter. The NY Times isn’t worried about your opinion.
Hypocritical since the founder of Romney's religion was known as a booty chaser.
So you have to be perfect to be accepted into your so called “church?” Hmmmmmmm...
Jesus said for anyone who is without sin to cast the first stone. Hmmmmmm
Mitt didn't "govern" with democracy in his mormon leadership positions...there IS no "democracy" in the mormon church, only unquestioned authority from the "Prophet" down.
There are very few sins which mandate excommunication to begin the process of repentance. Gross iniquity can qualify a person for excommunication. "Gross iniquity" could include "murder, adultery, sexual perversion, or any serious offense against society that has resulted in conviction by the civil courts. A good example would be a major criminal charge."5 The practice of or advocacy of polygamy qualifies a person for excommunication from the Church. Apostasy can also result in excommunication. Apostasy is not inactivity in Church programs. A person who drifts away and becomes inactive is not apostate. Apostasy involves will-full rebellion, overt criticism of the Church, fighting against the Church.
