Romney is worth an estimated $250 million and has been accused of being out of touch with most Americans’ economic struggles.

From the mid-1800s until 1978, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) had a policy against ordaining black men of African descent to the church’s lay priesthood. This resulted in black members being unable to participate in some temple ordinances considered necessary for salvation. Though the church… Read more »
