Church of the religious right

Nowhere is this picture more true than in Mormonism.  It amazes me how a church with origins in communal living, alternative marriage styles (polygamy), and anti-government sentiments (Mormons swore a blood oath against the U.S. government until the early 20th century), could become the right-wing, capitalist, anti-gay, pro-government religion that it is now.
