 I Went To Church and It Didn't Hurt A Bit


Webmaster's note:    My sources in finding the information on this website has been the Internet, books, information from the family and friends of the people, and often from the Famous Mormons themselves.

You will also see I am not attempting to judge activity in the Church or political preference. I once received a lengthy e-mail about one of the U.S. senators who was included on the website. The person felt I should remove the senator from the website because he didn't have the same political values as the e-mail sender. Needless to say, I didn't remove him.
