A Mormon, Tom Cruise, and a Chinese Communist Walk into a Bar

The LDS Church has filed a copyright infringement claim against a charity dedicated to developing free, open content based on publication of a secret LDS bishops handbook on indoctrination, excommunication, and tithing. The Mormons join some dubious company:
Wikileaks has received copyright infringement claims from organizations including the Church of Scientology's Religious Technology Center ... and the Chinese government attempts to censor every website with the word "wikileaks" in the web page address.
The Mormons are free to keep all the secrets they want, but their lack of transparency about indoctrination makes them look cultish (in the bad sense) rather than mainstream.
