I totally understand and respect that. That is true of any religion. Many people are _ religion in name only. Thanks for your input. I was just curious.
Myself, as a member of the LDS church, I morally can not support either Hilary or Trump. I feel both are corrupt and the thought of either being president is scary.
Sighs, yet now I must deal with Trump for at least two years. I just hope he doesn't screw up too badly, or help in laws that I cannot agree with. I am very concerned with what the future holds.

I thought Mormons would be repulsed by someone like Trump because of what he stands for - his values but I'm surprised by the way they have embraced him.
I can offor a couple of reasons, one of which being that there may actually be those of the church who actually believe and what Trump is having to say or there he can actually make America great again… then there's the 12th Article of Faith.
