There seems no limit to the amount of cruel stupidity humans will 
embrace, nor how much money and effort they will throw at 
it.  Granted, the Mormons don't seem *quite* as mired in it as the 
Aztecs, the Ik and the Muslims.

I was under the impression that each Morman adult man who made the 
grade got to have a planet of his own, where he'd take his wife/wives 
and kids to be god-king (or something). That's somewhat hinted at in 
your response. I don't quite see how the kids get included since 
presumably they grow up and go to planets of their own.
