Re: “Warrior Spirit

Sorry, Moana, but I never said the LDS church is fully focused on real estate. What I _did_ say is that it is gobbling up real estate in several places, and I stand by that.

And seriously, the LDS church provides service without media involvement? That's laughable.

For fun, look up the Mormon Helping Hands program. Note two things: 1). It has among its stated purposes the following:

"Build Relationships with Opinion Leaders

"Church Public Affairs exists to build strategic relationships with opinion leaders who affect the reputation of the Church of Jesus Christ. Service is a powerful tool for influencing the beliefs and opinions of prominent individuals. Mormon Helping Hands is especially effective in developing beneficial relationships between Church leaders and government officials or other opinion leaders.

"Enhance the Reputation of the Church

"Mormon Helping Hands helps bring the Church out of obscurity and can greatly improve its reputation. Local media interest in these projects helps spread the knowledge of the Church to many who would not otherwise hear of it."

Note please the intent to draw media interest.

And 2). Ask your stake leaders who is responsible for the Mormon Helping Hands program in your stake. Because the handbook calls for it to be homed with the stake PUBLIC AFFAIRS representative. We do not wonder why.

The LDS church collects billions each year, and it refuses to provide even its own members any visibility into how much comes in, how it is spent, or how much its top leaders are paying themselves in "living allowances."

That is shameful.

Re: “Warrior Spirit

Is anyone really surprised by any of this?

The LDS church has become more and more focused on real estate. It has gobbled up property in Nebraska and Florida in breathtaking amounts. All the while it continues to collect 10% tithing from the poorest of the poor for what?

The LDS church is corporation masquerading as a church.
