The Mormon church has been thinking about this for YEARS.No, not
because I know personally, but because its such a huge decision that after
decades and decades of being very consistent(in this area at least), there is no
way this was a one month, or even one year decision.With the
negative impact to the state schools, the least the Mormons could have done was
make the colleges and universities aware they were considering it.Yes, it would have become public knowledge at that point.But why
keep it a secret only to have the massive negative impacts to taxpayer funded
colleges and universities?
