THE BEST SINGLE THING THAT I EVER DID FOR MYSELF WAS TO LEAVE SALT LAKE CITY IN 1956 TO GO INTO THE MARINE CORPS.I WAS BORN IN SALT LAKE IN 1938 AND ATTENDED PUBLIC SCHOOLS. I CAN STILL REMEMBER THE TIME THAT I DECIDED TO LEAVE. IT WASN'T BECAUSE OF THE DISCRIMINATION OF MORMON KIDS AGAINST NON-MORMONS, ALTHOUGH THAT HELPED. IT WASN'T BECAUSE OF THE SEX DISCRIMINATION BY MORMON SUPERVISORS AGAINST MY MOTHER. IT WAS ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE LACK OF VISION BY THE LDS ELDERS. SOMETIME AROUND 1950, LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT CAME TO UTAH LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO BUILD AN AIRCRAFT PLANT. ALONG WITH MY PARENTS, I ATTENDED TWO MEETINGS WHERE WE LISTENED TO WHAT THE LOCKHEED SPOKESPERSONS HAD TO SAY. IT WAS SO EXCITING FOR ME AS I HAD ALREADY DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO BECOME AN AERONAUTICAL ENGINEER, AND THE U OF U HAD SUCH A PROGRAM. BUT THE DESERET NEWS PUBLISHED AN EDITORIAL STATING THAT UTAH DID NOT NEED SUCH AN EMPLOYER AS IT WOULD BRING ALL SORTS OF RIFF-RAFF. THE DAY THAT EDITORIAL CAME OUT, I DECIDED THAT AS SOON AS I WAS OLD ENOUGH I WOULD LEAVE. THIS RIFF-RAFF LEFT THE MARINE CORPS AFTER SIX YEARS OF SERVICE, ENTERED UCLA, STAYED UNTIL I EARNED A BS AND MS IN AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING, AND WENT TO WORK FOR LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT. I MADE AN EXCELLENT LIVING, HAVE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE AND HAVE BEEN BACK TO UTAH ONLY TWICE, BOTH TIMES TO CHANGE PLANES. ALL YOU SAINTS CONTINUE TO STAY THERE AND STEW IN YOUR CONSERVATIVE, RACIST, IGNORANT PUSS.

The Mormon church is still racist.

Just read their 2013 Aaronic Priesthood Manual

They still discourage interracial marriage
