Mormon Epistemology Explained

This is well-written book by a cousin of Mitt Romney who shares his thoughts on why he chose to leave the LDS Church after a lifetime of service. Park Romney's book speaks to truth and will make those who want an easy, "feel good" answer to life's questions uncomfortable--as it should! Of the great books by former LDS who address the fraudulent underpinnings and corporate greed of Mormonism this one explains the epistemology (doctrinal theory of truth and knowldege) of Mormonism. Here, the reader will get valuable insight into the mental processing and psychology of would-be President of the United States, Mitt Romney. For a good understanding of why Mitt finds no problem with his flip-flops, and how the Mormon Church influences the decisions of its members, it is mandatory reading!

How does the Mormon Church accomplish brainwashing, as you contend?

Nina Rehfeld: You contend that the mormon religion employs brainwashing its members. How so, if the church insists that everyone needs to search for truth in prayer themselves?

Park Romney: This is a complex discussion but, ultimately comes down, once again, to the epistemology of the Church. Members are taught to consider “good feelings” achieved under enormous social pressure to constitute answers to prayers and, accordingly, a basis for establishing truth which often times flies in the face of objective and incontestable evidence to the contrary. This empowers an illegitimate priesthood with an unwarranted obedience.
