And Mitt Romney (LDS/Mormom) was a Presidential Candidate. So what? That doesn't make him any less of a cult member. People and their "titles" (above) don't mean sh*t to me if they are in a cult. People in the military (especially) are trained to merely "take orders", "do as they're told", and "not think about it." Perfect cult member if there ever was one. Critical thinking is discouraged in the military. They don't want soldiers to "think", they want robotic soldiers who follow commands without question!
You live in Australia? Good for you. You should come up here to Pennsylvania (USA), the very heart of these 19th century cults, and try being in their congregations? The closer you get to the source, the more hardcore it becomes. JW's will tell you; Congregations on the West Coast (California, USA) are very very liberal and different than here in PA or up in New York. The closer you get to HQ, the crazier and more strict, fanatical, and zealous it becomes.
