I realize this is crazy old, but I came across this doing some research. Seeing how Ted Bundy was born in 1946, baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1975 (shortly before being arrested for kidnapping), being excommunicated from the church in 1976 (after conviction), and it's believed he began killing in 1972 or earlier, I think it absolutely fair to say the LDS church and the trauma he had as a child within it did not make him a killer. You know, seeing how he was not a member of that church as a child, therefore did not have any said childhood trauma from the church. He also was a killer before he joined the church. He has said he joined the mormons in Utah because it made it easier for him to blend in if he was a member of the main church, not because he believed or practiced.
