Mormon's Founder Joseph Smith Was a Nutcase

This is the 75th year that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been staging the Hill Cumorah Pageant, at the very place where, according to the church’s history, Joseph Smith found the golden plates on which were written the Book of Mormon in the 1820s. (Joe was a horny Polygamist and snake-oil salesman -and all around cookoo clock)

Now - This fairy Tale is what Mitt Romney Believes:

The Book of Mormon has been called the longest and most complex of Smith's revelations.[283] The Book of Mormon is organized as a compilation of smaller books, each named after its main named narrator or a prominent leader. It tells the story of the rise and fall of a religious civilization beginning around 600 BC and ending in 421 AD.[284] The story begins with a family that leavesJerusalem, just before the Babylonian captivity.[285] They eventually construct a ship and sail to a "promised land" in the Western Hemisphere.[286] There, they are divided into two factions: Nephites and Lamanites. The Nephites become a righteous people who build a temple and live the law of Moses, though their prophets teach a gospel that is explicitly Christian.[286] The Lamantites battle the Nephites year after year,[286] and after a thousand years, succeed in destroying the Nephites. The book explains itself to be largely the work of Mormon, a Nephite prophet and military figure who leads his people in the twilight of their existence, and whose son, Moroni, buries the records written ongolden plates.[286]

maybe they should ask the American Indians about these tribes?
