Romney’s church

To the Editor:

In a recent Brian Williams “Rock Center” broadcast, they discussed some to the ways of Mormon life and laws.

Part of what was revealed made me curious. I was surprised that Mitt Romney can visit any other church, but no one but a Mormon can enter his Mormon church. You will be turned away if you are not a Mormon.

In the Mormon church, it’s mandated that all working Mormons turn over 10 percent of their salary to their church. I’m wondering if this could possibly be one of Romney’s reasons for not revealing his tax returns? Does he turn over 10 percent of his income to his church? And if he does, does that entitle him to any special tax break? It’s not a donation, it’s a rule of his church.

The Mormons also have their own gigantic food center that provides free food to any church member who is in need, which is not shared with anyone who is a non-Mormon. The rest in their area can just stay hungry.

During these election campaigns, I believe that all issues should be discussed so the voters would have a more realistic background of the man who wants to run our country.
