Mormon Morality

Personally, I've had very limited interaction with Mormons, but the interactions that involved contractual ethics left me wondering if there was something about the religion that condoned what I would call cheating. As Joanna Brooks reports at Religion Dispatches, my suspicions might in fact have some basis in the belief system of Mormonism.

Applied to the topic of government policy, Brooks observes that some officials in government and the Mormon church both condoned and participated in developing torture techniques that clearly violate international human rights law. More importantly, Brooks notes, presidential candidate Romney, by his own statements, falls into this camp.
