ya that's strange the bretheren dedicate a private business, If they have supernatural powers and are tight with god, wouldn't that make things unfair in the free market of capitalism? I remember when huntsman came to USU in a limo years ago to give away $50,000,000, he was escorted by Packer. What packer had to do with the college, the money, or huntsman, I couldn't say? Money is the only

Jon Huntsman Sr. made statements saying that he resented the SLOC sentiment that Jon's money was also their money to fund the 2002 Olympics. NOW WHERE WOULD SLOC GET AN IDEA LIKE THAT ????? Its almost AS IF they felt they were asking/ demanding on behalf of MORmON Jesus and His MORmON church, and Huntsman was duty bound to give as much as SLOC wanted as Huntsman was some one who had promised

That sounds like an interesting book. I'd like to read it too. I can guess where a rivalry could have originated. Huntsman Sr. worked in the Nixon White House, and Romney Sr. wasn't political enough for Nixon. In any case, Romney must have been surprised at Huntsman not only competing with him for Mormon votes, but also cutting off his access to any Huntsman money. I'll bet that Romney also

I recently read the book. I thought it was a pretty good read. In my opinion Jon Huntsman Sr. comes off the best. I hadn't realized that he was such a self-made man. He also comes across as down to earth with all his charity work. George Romney also comes across as a pretty good guy. The two sons seem like they got a lot of advantages in life just handed to them (Huntsman more so than Romne

I've read a book review by Alex Beam in the Wall Street Journal about the new book "Mormon Rivals: The Romneys, the Huntsmans and the Pursuit of Power." Anyone out there who has read the book have an opinion about it? Bean's review states that Huntsman "doesn't come off very well in this book." Any other comments about the feud between the Romneys and the Huntsmans?

Mormons--as a religion, as a social group, community group, as business people--typically aren't very concerned about the environment (certainly not overpopulation). That said, does anyone care that John Huntsman Sr. is one of the world's major polluters? How did he make his fortune? I know, as an insider, that John's mother-in-law, Ruby Haight Olsen, was from a family that had a lucrat

Oh I see, Huntsman Sr. was an AREA Authority, technically not a GA. But since he reportedly loaned his private jet to the FP in the days of Hinckley, there's a good chance that he and his wife maybe others in the family had the good ol' 2nd annointing. So to me, it's all the same - GA, 2nd annointing, etc. This is just conjecture but if Jon had the 2nd annointing too, that would explain why

This was an old post - but back when I posted it, Idid not know that Huntsman daughter had anorexia. I read in a newspaper or somewhere that she had a drug problem, prescription medication or something along those lines, not really sure. That made me want to assume depression, but I really don't know what happened. I have no doubt that some of the Huntsman family members are very decent. I da

You can't forget Abby Huntsman, who is exmo. I absolutely loved it when she blasted the Mormon Church over the excommunication of Kate Kelly on msnbc: http://www.msnbc.com/the-cycle/watch/abby--open-dialogue-needed-in-mormon-church-290985539952

"Could it be that GAs (Huntsman Sr included) are not what they seem? Not really spiritual but just businessmen who are opportunists?" Gee that would really be something new with the CULT huh?

Jon Huntsman Sr is one of my heroes. His philanthropy is my definition of "work on things you can do something about." He is a real person just like the rest of us. He has real life problems just like the rest of us. He uses his resources to help the whole world. He is a very wealthy man with a kind heart and wants to make the world better.

Jon Huntsman Sr. was never a General Authority. He was a Stake President and later an Area Authority Seventy. His wife's father was David B. Haight, an Apostle from 1976 until his death (approx 2005). Jon Huntsman Jr. is obviously an "exmo" in Spirit. He is certainly not a Steve Benson in being vocal about things. But I have never seen/heard of him doing any TBM thing at any tim

I remember that Jon Sr. granddaughter (brunet and quite attractive, with dark features) decided it was all a bunch of crap went on a tv documentary and told everyone this. She coincidentally decided to marry a never-mo. But after all the benefits her family received from being momo royalty, for her to excommunicate her self?

Rather than "highly offensive and cruel", there are many kind words about the Huntsman family on this thread. I served with one of the sons in Japan in '87-'89. He was a humble, genuinely nice young man. He was gentile and soft-spoken. I wasn't from Utah and had never heard of the Huntsman family. I would have never known he was from a rich or prominent family if someone hadn't tol
