This was recently aired on the BBC. Not a totally balanced view of Mormonism and Mitt Romney but interesting.
at 23:00 - horrifying story about a maybe soon to be president.
After watching this I learned the following:
There was a anonymous survey given to some members about the temple endowment prior to the changes when the LDS leadership saw the temple attendance down.
Prior to 1990 in the Mormon temple endowment you would swear secrecy or suffer your life to be taken...while making the motion to have your throat cut and you stomach cut.
Before That...Death Oaths Made by All Mormon Temple Patrons Prior to the 1930's:ADAM : "We, and each of us, covenant and promise that we will not reveal any of the secrets of this, the first token of the Aaronic priesthood, with its accompanying name, sign or penalty. Should we do so, we agree that our throats be cut from ear to ear and our tongues torn out by their roots."ADAM: "All bow your heads and say Yes."TEMPLE PATRONS: "Yes." (All patrons sit down.)**Even today, Mormon Temple patrons make the oaths of secrecy above, although without the gruesome penalties.
