    You know........a friend of mine and I were talking recently about Mitt Romney and why he won't release his tax returns, and she told me that it could be that he's been deficient in his tithing requirements to the Mormon church, and releasing his tax returns would show his bishop how much money he REALLY makes.

    Here's a link.........

    The Mormon Curtain - MORMON TITHING

    So..........what do the rest of you think? It would look really bad for him to be the nominee and have his church kick him out.

    I'm pretty sure that his bishop would like to see his tax returns as well....

    No......a CONVERSION works well.

    Getting kicked out of your church? Not so much.

    Tithing is between a man and God. No one has ever been excommunicated for failure to pay tithing.

    He has money. I am not sure what releasing tax returns does anyway other than tell us they have money.

    Mitt ought to tell the press that as soon as Obama releases his college transcripts, he will release his tax returns. Oh wait, that would make Mitt a racist! Must not question the Obama!!

    In Christian churches they wouldn't be excommunicated for it. By the article it looks like it's a strict requirement for Mormons. I think it's pretty sickening for any religion to tell someone the HAVE TO pay our your out! That's crazy! But, some of these cultish religions are just that way, have their own rules.

    Like the JW ...they're some really strange ones! If your family belong to this, and one person in that family decides to leave, their whole family are not supposed to have any communications with that person unless they come back. So you're disowned by your own family for not wanting to following their religion. It's pretty sick!
