This is my culture. A fair and interesting article as to why possibly some 62% of U.S. Mormons voted Republican. I have frequently encountered the “S” word among Mormons who are willing to talk politics.
The main reason Mormons in the United States rail against anything socialist is because so much of their “doctrine” is derived from the Republican Party.
Republicans hate any form of universal health care, not because it’s ineffective but because it’s socialist. Yet Mormons in England, and France, and Japan, and all the other countries with such programs, don’t have to denounce their country’s health care system and insist on for-profit health care in order to obtain temple recommends, do they?
