BBC Documentary On Mormon Hierarchy Spying And Shunning And On Romney's Family Busting

A committee made up of Mormons, some of whom are ex CIA or FBI, spies on those who leave the LDS
BBC Documentary On Mormon Hierarchy Spying And Shunning And On Romney's Family Busting


"Mormonism, the British public learned from a documentary that aired on the BBC this week, is scary and mysterious, a possible "cult" on the verge of taking over the most powerful office in the world.

"The Mormon Candidate" was made by John Sweeney."


"Mitt Romney was a Mormon bishop for five years in the 1980′s in addition to being president of the Boston chapter. The BBC interviews a former parishioner of the Boston Mormon church that Mitt Romney was bishop of; her name is Peggy Hayes. She tells the BBC her story that she has never shared in an interview before.

Peggy got pregnant out of wedlock and Mitt Romney came to visit her; she says he told her to give her child up to the church for adoption. She also says that if she didn’t give up her child to the church – Romney threatened to have her excommunicated from the church.

“I said well are you suggesting that I give up my child to the church. And he pretty much said – yeah, that’s exactly what we we’re asking you to do … is to give up your child to the church. And he said somewhat casually – well … you know you’re facing some serious consequences pretty much. And if you don’t give up your child then you would considered to be in violation of the doctrines of the church. And in effect what that would mean is that you would be excommunicated.”
~Peggy Hayes, former Romney parishioner

The Mormon Church has a committee including Mormons formerly in the CIA and FBI

who investigate those who leave the church. The LDS Church encourages families to shun those of their own families who leave the church. Mitt Romney, as a bishop of the Mormon Church, told a woman he would excommunicate her if she did not separate herself from her son.

There are still 40,000 renegade Mormon polygamists.

In a world of 7 billion people, Mormons are encouraged to have many children despite the environmental costs to a planet in distress.. There are parts of Utah says John Sweeney in which the birth rate is higher than in Bangladesh.
