At some point, Mitt’s taxes are likely to be revealed if he doesn’t do it himself. If it turns out that he has been avoiding his full tithes as well as taxes, will the Mormon Church excommunicate him or will they allow him to pay tithes due with penalties and interest? I am not a member of the Church so I cannot say what they will do. A major tenet of the Church is to tell the truth. Mitt’s campaign for president so far is sorely lacking in truth. Could he be excommunicated for that too? Or will he and the Church accept the rationale that in this case, the ends justify the means? We will see.
