Facts not feelings Jan 31, 2008
Rocky Hulse has written an exellent book documenting the tremendous influence the LDS church wields over it's menbers. The information in When Salt Lake City Calls is taken from Mormon sources and the references I looked up were entirely accurate and in context. This book is not bigotry or based on a feeling the author may have had, it is based on an objective look at the statements made in Mormon documents. Based on the facts the conclusion the author draws is a no brainer.
When Salt Lake City Calls: Is the a conflict between Mormonism and the public trust? Jan 7, 2008
Can Americans Trust Mormons in Public Office?
Is the Mormon Church the Ultimate Lobbyist?
NAUVOO, IL -- Today, Mitt Romney's bid for the presidency has everybody asking the following questions: Can Americans trust Mormons in public office? Is the Mormon Church the ultimate lobbyist? Could a Mormon who holds a governmental position of authority be forced by their religious beliefs to make a decision contrary to all logic, reason, facts, or evidence? Do Mormons swear allegiance to their church, its prophets and apostles, their living oracles, and the priesthood power they hold? Author Rocky Hulse's When Salt Lake City Calls: Is There a Conflict Between Mormonism and the Public Trust? answers these questions and more.
"Every year is an election year for public officials around the country," says Hulse. "Every day appointments are made to fill important governmental positions of authority from the local to the federal level. Can we, the American public, feel confident that our elected or appointed government officials of the Mormon faith will act in the best interest of those they are elected or appointed to represent, or are they in bondage to fulfill the interest of their `church' over the people they serve?"
Without inflammatory language or sensationalism, When Salt Lake City Calls logically and systematically details Mormon doctrines that clearly show the oaths and covenants required for membership in the Mormon Church, the Mormon Priesthood, and the completely secret oaths mandated in the Mormon Temple Ceremony. Hulse makes understandable the very complex doctrines of Mormonism and lays plain the key provisions of the faith that are in absolute opposition to the American ideal of free and unencumbered representation in the halls of government. A startling aspect of this thoroughly researched work is the Mormon doctrinal concept that on "Resurrection Morning" a Mormon will not only be judged by Jesus Christ, but also the Mormon leadership now living on earth. This puts a Mormon in a doctrinal vice. If a Mormon were to refuse "counsel" delivered by Mormon Leadership, it could very well cost them their status for eternity.
Hulse, a retired Navy veteran, is a 6th generation former-Mormon intimately familiar with the inner teachings and circles of Mormonism. When Salt Lake City Calls has been in print for three months and has yet to be challenged by the Mormon Church - the silence is deafening!

Informative Reading! Dec 28, 2007
Rocky Hulse has done his homework! He writes both from personal experience as a former Morman as well as well-documented research on the subject of Mormonism. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand Mormon doctrine and practices.
Over 5 Million U.S. Citizens Can't Run for President Because the Author Says So Dec 25, 2007
If a book tries to tell you that over 5 million law-abiding U.S. citizens should not be allowed to run for office, would you want to buy it? Maybe the author should first read the Constitution and realize that his argument is unamerican and unconstitutional. I thought we're beyond this kind of bigotry against a minority group.
"When Salt Lake City Calls" Dec 25, 2007
This book is, in my opinion, an in depth, even handed look at the Mormon religion and the influence it tends to exert over its membership... and its sometimes devastating effects on our legal system... and on humanity. Not to overlook the excesses of other religions... Catholicism (the pedophile priest scandal) or Islamism (its fine example of religious theocracy over the past 900+ years), but LDS advocates need to respond to some of the specific charges Hulse makes. Rocky is the real deal when it comes to articulating a well documented criticism with his ex-Mormon voice of experience. It's so easy, for apparently well educated people, to leap to the conclusion that he is just another Mormon-hating religious bigot. They need to take a deeper look.
There is always reason for concern when it comes to considering a candidate for President. It truly is for the job of most powerful person on earth. In reading Hulse's book, I found reasons to be concerned about the LDS leadership and the control a Mormon President might bring to them. Personally, I agree with arguments extolling the dangers of religious influence on candidates of ALL religions. ALL Presidential candidates should be scrutinized on their individual religious belief systems... atheists and agnostics included. "When Salt Lake City Calls" is the best work you'll read directed at whether a Mormon should be deserving of our support for this Nation's highest office. This is a question that is being much too lightly dismissed. After reading Rocky's book, Mr. Romney will have to do more to assure me that a vote for him "is not" a vote for Gordon B. Hinkley.
