    They don't (or at least are not supposed to) drink, smoke, gamble, have sex with people not their wives, and are supposed to be obedient to authority.  Ideal for CIA and FBI recruits. God and Country and all that.

    Hughes bunch of Mormons were called the 'Mormon Mafia" by those that dealt with them.

      Not to mention the cheerful workaholic attitude.  I've seen in person that for Mormons, it's not enough to obey and not even enough to be totally committed to your goal; you have to love every minute of it.  It's probably served the Mormons I knew in school very well, but it still gives me the creeps.

      In other words, born and bred conservatives.
