And if current trends continue, LDS residents no longer will constitute a majority by 2030.

Wow! I was just watching that on history channel today how the leader of the Mormons promised to get some settlers on there way through Mormon and Indian territory out safely from the Indians attacks and after he took their weapons he double crossed them and had his guys and the Indians shoot them all in the back and kill everyone except the small children, but 20 years later the Calvary caught up with him and he was shot in front of a firing squad.
What's that? You mean that one of today's popular cults is on the decline in one of it's most prevalent areas? Woo-Hoo!Grace and Peace...
