Mormon Leader Dies

Gordon Hinckley, president of the Mormon church, has died at age 97. Bad news for Romney, as he will have to attend the funeral and that will bring his religion back into public view yet again. Interestingly, the Mormon leadership acts much like the Catholic church. The president is considered not just a manager but a prophet, alleged to have a direct line to god that allows him to pronounce new doctrines.
