I was born mormon, raised mormon, married mormon, left mormonism. I have lived in several areas that were mormon-controlled. I don't want my children and grandchildren to have that experience.
Your bishop friend may have been a trustworthy soul, but keep in mind that when he attended the mormon temple he took this oath solemnly:
You and each of you covenant and promise before God, angels, and these witnesses at this altar, that you do accept the Law of Consecration as contained in the Doctrine and Covenants, in that you do consecrate yourselves, your time, talents, and everything with which the Lord has blessed you, or with which he may bless you, to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for the building up of the Kingdom of God on the earth and for the establishment of Zion.
Law of Consecration
That article does a fine job of relating how much Mitt is influenced by his religion. Don't think for one moment that if he takes the oath of office for POTUS that his oath to his religion will be cast aside.
Mormons are no better or worse than any other group of people..they just have a multi-million-dollar PR firm and people who judge the whole group by the good actions of a few, holding them up as paragons of virtue.

(The epitome of stupidity is a member of a proven racist sect running against a black man.)
I've known a few people who bailed out and their stories were jaw dropping enough that I had trouble believing it.
As groups go, they were pretty thick in a couple of places I've lived, mostly were good neighbors and co-workers and the Bishop I worked for at 18 was an excellent boss.
I still wish I could have convinced that one former morman to marry me. That girl was unforgettably fine.
She and her brother definitely felt the same way you do and were happy to have gotten out.
