  • Bishops told ex-wives to consider career ambitions when they reported abuse

    The LDS Church declared Thursday that it has “zero tolerance” for abuse of any kind but couldn’t speak directly to allegations by the ex-wives of a former White House official who reported they received no help from their Mormon clergy when they were being abused.
    Jennifer Willoughby and Colbie Holderness — former wives of Rob Porter, who resigned as White House staff secretary this week — said their LDS bishops either didn’t believe them or didn’t step in to help when they alleged Porter had physically abused them.
    Porter has denied the charges.

    GR: Aren’t there’s articles you can find about the Church that show all the good work the brethren do in the world? Why zero in on the negative. It’s not like we are atheists

        Why does the truth frighten you? "Good works" [which I think, in Mormon terms, are questionable] doesn't cancel out domestic abuse. Mormons aren't saints, no matter what the name LDS implies.
