This story was based entirely upon numbers that they provided, and they were, ummm, dishonest. They provided numbers to the researchers that even ran counter to those published in their own Church Almanac.

I wonder if we’ll ever find something that this church won’t lie about?

Here’s the article about the amended numbers.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that for this same report, the Mormons changed how they count someone as a member.

Church attendance of Mormons is 40%. So for that remaining 60%, who have, or haven’t attended a Mormon church in years, but their names remain on the rolls, because it takes miles of red tape to get your name removed, and most give up.

Now the pollster says each church determines how to count it’s members. But if Mormons typically lie by inflating numbers, by including “members” who left the church, but the Mormons keep their names on the rolls – none of these numbers are credible, considering the source.

Figures don’t lie, but Mormons figure.

My name is still on the rolls, and I have submitted three letters over two years, to the Bishop, and a copy to Salt Lake, to remove my name. But whenever the ward gets new Missionaries who visit “members” from the membership list – go figure – I’m still marked as Active.

Figures don’t lie, but Mormons figure.

Now we know where Mormon Romney learned to lie so convincingly.
