While GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney is not known for a willingness to discuss his Mormon faith in detail, at least during his political speeches, a family member and former Mormon has come out to accuse The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of being a cult and a fraud.
“I became convinced that it’s a fraud,” Park Romney, an ex-Mormon high priest and Romney’s cousin, shared with the BBC. “I am alienated from my family. Their doctrine, their protocol and their culture as enforced by bishops encourages the families to disassociate themselves from the apostate.”
Expanding on his reasons for why he was led to believe the LDS Church is a fraud, the Republican’s cousin revealed:
“There’s compelling evidence that the Mormon Church leaders knowingly and willfully misrepresent the historical truth of their origins and of the church for the purpose of deceiving their members into a state of mind that renders them exploitable.”
