My sister, brother -in- law, and their two children live in Salt Lake City. I doubt they would agree with any of your statements. In fact the opposite is true. They have appreciated the family values and work ethic of the Mormon life which impacts the quality of the public schools and the general environment in which they have raised their children. Ironically, my brother-in-law is a liberal, but he still recognizes his family has benefitted and avoided some of the social ills plaguing other areas by living in a Mormon dominated area.
