Skip to comments.Washington, D.C., becoming a 'Mormon stronghold'
Posted on 05/22/2012 8:47:57 AM PDT by greyfoxx39
The stunning expansion of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Washington, D.C., area is profiled in a long, interesting and meticulously accurate CNN story that suggests "the nation's capital has become a Mormon stronghold, with Latter-day Saints playing a big and growing role in the Washington establishment."
"It's hard to point to federal legislation or a White House initiative that bears distinctly Mormon fingerprints," Gilgoff writes, "while it's easy to do the same for other faiths." He cites as an example a recent White House "compromise" on contraception funding, which he says was "mostly a reaction to pressure from Roman Catholic bishops."

Well I’m not at all surprised you wouldn’t know Deb. Those on the lower rung of Mormonism are generally uninformed about the political nature and agenda within the church...let alone those who weld it.
Some people are just to thick and stubborn to discern Romney and the political nature of his church....you won’t be the first nor the last that can’t see, and wouldn’t even if the facts were presented.
Mitt’s next-door neighbor Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Sure I did!
But not soon enough! ;^)
Got a link so we can read (pun not intended) it; too?
But there are NONE here; so we personally were not called Nazis.
If it had read: The MormonISM haters here ...
Well; THAT would be a LOT different.Do we not know that Elsie the Great posts things about NAZIs here and has survived?
How can a man start claiming to be a prophet and by blather and constant repetition, attain the status of a deity?" The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no successunless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly -- it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over."
We seem to have a prophetESS in our midst.
See my post 129
Bald eagles have MORE rights than humans before they are born.
One dast not even possess a FEATHER that has fallen from an eagle butt, lest one be PROSECUTED!
Quite an accusation!
Do you equate EVERYONE who refuses to vote for Romney, for whatever reason, to be an Obama SUPPORTER?
That was the way it was in the beginning, Hughes died a prisoner isolated by these loyal trust worthy people.
Can I assume that HH has been proxy baptised by a faithful, TR holding MORMON?
I am sure he was, I mean according the the mormons HH left them 25mil to 125m depending what account you read.
Hey is that the same Bill Gay who later got to be high up in the Mormon business ???
The one whose young teenage daughter ran away from home to New York ???
You mean the girl who went to a rave got strung out and hid from her dad, and Romney levitated over the city using his ex-ray vision to look into buildings to find her, single handily of course.
I just checked
the Dad of the Mormon dope addict was Robert Gay...
Hes now a GA, a CEO with the Mormons
a member of the first quorum of the 70..
70 what ??? little dwarfs ???
Whats the betting though that Robert Gay and Bill gay the Mormlon who was with HH when he died of starvation and an overdose of codeine etc are related...
Would not surprise me. The men that HH hired to protect him, neglected him to death.
That Bill Gay was the father of Robert Gay
Bill Gay was sued for $50 MILLION for conspiracy after HH died...
Frank William "Bill" Gay (September 11, 1920 May 21, 2007) was an American executive who oversaw several entities for Howard Hughes. He was chairman of the board of directors of the Hughes Air Corporation. He served as a senior vice president and member of the board of directors for the Hughes Tool Company. He was also president and chief executive officer of Summa Corporation.
After Howard Hughes' death, he was sued for $50 million by the Summa Corporation for conspiracy. He settled out of court.
Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, he was a student at University of California, Los Angeles when he was hired by Hughes. A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Gay put together the so-called "Mormon Mafia" that comprised Hughes' inner circle in his later life. Appointed by the Delaware Court of Chancery, Gay served as trustee of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute from 1984 until his retirement in 2006. He had previously served on the Institute's executive committee from 1971-1984.
He was an active supporter of the Boy Scouts of America.
His son is Robert C. Gay, a co-founder and CEO of Huntsman Gay Global Capital, and before that managing director of Bain Capital for sixteen years.
