The Mormon faith.
Mitt Romney may or may not become the first Mormon -- moving to the White House next year.
But a new study shows that woman is -- is moving into more parts of the country than any other religious group making it the fastest growing faith.
In more than half of the United States states the US states.
How will that -- -- from Mitt Romney -- and let's -- with the panel I'm gonna start with Warren because warn you actually would have very very incendiary.
I had editorial about Mitt Romney and and that vote for me ironically -- -- many -- -- in the White -- is basically the book of -- -- and we can't have that -- explain -- you know.
Well -- -- them because I wrote that article I have chosen to recuse myself from further coverage.
I -- in -- is about they have chosen the Wii is a magazine world magazine we've.
-- we decided that would be best I mean not the articles that erode our you know their part of the record their online I've even written a couple for.
World magazine and so you know I don't think that there's any question that that it's an issue in this election.
Okay so the fact that woman is and is growing rabbi what is what is a stadium.
First of all the statistics it is when he -- down to the statistics it's like 40% drugs 40% growth.
They lowered the numbers so it's -- mormons are about you know six million in the country.
We're talking about 320 million people yes warm isn't growing a lot of that figure has to do with how -- -- isn't organizes itself as it gets to a certain -- breaks it's church and opens up another house because they don't they don't have to make them that I -- you know make -- -- churches sodas right by so.
So a lot of these numbers are not so important and we also 40% of all of the members of Soviets don't go to church only 40% go to church -- So let's you know I didn't have to take it in in certain kind of sent.
-- I yes sir I'd love -- time and actually played a -- but a lot of mormons are just absolutely right the church attendance is down.
That they built their churches in such a wonderful way it really is truly a community from the work place down.
The reason why they're growing it's what our pastors and Christian churches are saying they're out they're hitting the pavement.
They married they evangelizing they are disciples they are going out.
Every Mormon when they're eighteen has to go out and do that work and I think that any it's afraid of their labor they're out there on the on the streets converting people.
And any religion -- -- that much time and energy into it would see that kind of growth.
-- doesn't surprise me at all.
I think you're exactly right I think is it that well what we're afraid that people can talk about what's interesting is why is growing wise -- I think there are three things one it is exactly that.
-- they're willing to put up their.
Quotation marks product willing to sacrifice for their product looked -- two -- -- -- it it -- it to go one on on retreat they're willing to go cross the world so I think that that's a very powerful testament to people looking for authenticity State's second.
-- -- specialized you know there's no.
There's no rabbis ministers priests and in America anything that comes -- specialized.
It -- it easier access.
Think that people are attracted to this and timing on this morning's okay -- a bit and because whenever things that I knows about mormons and it and this is not profiling but I have notices that they're very very.
Moral ethical people that they have they have strong family values.
Does work with what -- very disciplined I work with one here who the producer and very young guy and he's got you know 34 kids.
They really or about the family and building the family.
-- do you think that's a track.
To people I do think that's attractive to people especially in an -- that we live in a dislocation and alienation.
I would also just -- the you know fairly obvious and certainly not original with me observation the demography is destiny.
And you know if -- if you are living in a culture where the birth rate is you know of around two point one.
And you Burke threaded your community is frequent water for growing a spot for one thing -- got here at the Fayette is the bits of the matter simple math.
But but also think that that is attracted to people they see these families they see the love and these families and education indeed you did -- exactly right they'll -- you -- look at even Romney you know -- -- -- very well educated I suspect that's also the community and try to -- that's what they care for each other they care for.
-- let me leave and let everybody I complex and can't Cummins right -- coming in from -- Charles -- Susan why why would the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints be growing at such a rapid pace could it be that the individuals are actually seeing the light and want truth.
And when they talk with missionaries or other members of the church of Jesus Christ their eyes are open to the fullest the gospel of Christ.
Good questions that need to be asked -- in -- and -- point and it it also brings up another point we're talking about this community that they.
You know -- grace is that.
Are they more attracted to the community or to the actual gospel Mario and how much and it's.
This is why yes I wanna I wanna add something when I was I'm running the learning annex we had all of our call center space -- you taught in my entire call center and cells that.
We're all mormons in the -- -- we did that they're so successful is because of that work ethic that they have.
They show up on time they do their life -- family people they don't rain they don't party.
We had our performance our company our figures financially.
Soared the minute that we may have all of our calls -- out to you toss and yes I think people are very attracted.
To that culture but again it comes back to the simple fact that they're opening of their mouth and sharing their faith.
-- other people weren't and as far as the birth rate goes if that were the message you know by which your religion -- catholicism should be the fastest growing.
-- -- -- -- And I think as Martinez and because there I'm his Mormon is and because of the way that they live their life which is so attracted to -- -- And they combine with the fact that they're talking about it.
Yeah I think that they're living out their faith in a way that a lot of people perhaps you know are not and you know there is that the great commission you know that's part of it.
Yeah no that's exactly right -- as they did not think what what we said a few moments ago about the hills or what you have read about -- -- -- -- -- on a mission is that that saw.
You know that's never really is but that's a sacrifice is putting your faith -- a practice and a lot of disciple -- happens -- have talked to a number of our missionaries.
They will say didn't they don't know a single person that was converted as a result the -- -- being on the mission field.
But it's buddy -- it solidified their faith for a lifetime yeah.
