Mormon Tom Green


"Mormon Tom Green"


Tom Green is not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; he is not a Mormon. As one reporter stated, "Green is not a Mormon, and it's more than inaccurate, it's irresponsible to call him one. It is sort of like calling Martin Luther a Catholic because he was a priest for a time."

You cannot practice polygamy and be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.



"Accusations that the Mormon Church used its political influence to silence Tom Green."


There is no truth to this rumor, nor any evidence whatsoever to any involvement by the Church in the prosecution of Mr. Green.
