Why does the media go "hog wild" with stories of Mormons and the sins one bad member commits? What does "ex-choir member" have to do with the LDS Church? Zero, zip, nothing. There are millions of LDS members who do the best they can to abide by the laws of God and country. If the media are so bent on giving the religion of an offender of the law, they need to print the religion of all offenders.
Give Mormons credit for the good we do and accept the fact that all religions have members who go astray.
