After reading these links,
LDS Church's responses here and here
coverage from the Article6Blog
it looks like either the Globe was wrong (? outright misrepresentation) or LDS church leaders are openly lying. Hmmm . . . I wonder which?!?!?!?
Actually, I think that these early attacks are great for Romney. They add clout to his building campaign (that the OTHER side is already fearing him . . . because they don't want to face him in a general election) and gives early experience in how to handle these issues to both the church and the Romney campaign. Better now than in a year from now. Romney himself is distanced from this one pretty well. This one's not "sticking" to Romney at all.
