Mormon mom charged with sex crimes

Christine Hubbs, a faithful Mormon mother, was charged with 67 counts of unlawful sex with minors. She is alleged to have slept with two neighborhood boys on numerous occasions. Her Mormon friends are shocked.

What does her faith have to do with her actions? Nothing. Being a Mormon does not help one be good. We make that choice ourselves.

I don’t pick on the LDS much. They seem to run a much tighter operations then Baptists or Catholics. Still, I wonder what rational the reporter has for bring up Hubbs’ faith? We know by now that faith does not make you less likely to commit an egregious act. So why mention it?
