As sure as the Angel Moroni told Joseph Smith where to dig up a divine box of golden plates:

Ted Cruz is going to win Utah.

And with Mitt Romney’s endorsement, he likely tops 50%– denying Trump a share of the 40 delegates at stake.

LDS

Utah is 60% Mormon.

In 2012, it went for Romney 73-25. That year, Salt Lake City was one of only 4 major American cities to vote Republican.

But in recent years– chastened by the blowback from the Prop 8 campaign– the Church of Latter Day Saints has sought to appease the Left.

On amnesty…

Obama’s hope on immigration reform is Utah, Mormon Church.

The leadership…now back a pathway to legal status and eventual citizenship, which is a key pillar of the White House’s effort.

On global warming…

Church leaders have made strong statements of their own about the environment over the past two years, some strikingly similar to comments by Pope Francis.

“God intends his creations to be aesthetically pleasing to enliven the mind and spirit, and some portions are to be preserved. Making the earth ugly offends him.”

On gay scout leaders…

The Mormon church will remain affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America despite the organization’s decision to allow gay troop leaders, church officials announced.

Not Racist-Racist, But

I’m LDS, kinda.

Among my fondest memories is my hot blonde primary school teacher, and her seemingly inexhaustible supply of flowery sundresses.

Among my least, being made to sing this…

The rank-and-file are instinctively rule-of-law, anti-amnesty. They’re not racist-racist? But:

  • They look at immigrants with suspicion. Until they get to know you, they assume you’re into some shady shit, or on welfare.
  • If you’re a chick, and you date a black guy? Your family will get over it, eventually. But there’s going to be a fight, and a period of estrangement.
  • If a new white (or Hispanic) lady comes to Sacrament Meeting, and her children have black people hair?? Everybody spends the next 3 1/2 hours of service dying to gossip about it.

Ultimately, Mormons defer to leadership, which is increasingly accepting of leftist causes– for fear of losing a generation of young adherents– whose continued worship is conditional upon the Church’s support for amnesty, opposition to climate change, and embrace of gay marriage.
