Why Would The Mormon Church Need To Ask For More Donations For Hurricane Katrina Victims When They Are Already A Billion Dollar Corporation?!!
Also, why would they request that everyone give their money to them and not to the Red Cross? It's all about control once again. They want you to donate your money so that they can decide what to do with it. Maybe help the victims, put it in the billion dollar mall fund, whatever they want. They want to decide where it goes!!
People are donating all year long to the Mormon Church!! What the hell is that for if they now need more donations at the time of a tragedy. All the other money from fast offerings and tithing from the last 50 years is gone? All the money from their business ventures is gone? I see them as one of the predators that is taking advantage of a tragedy to ask for more money. All they need to do is sell their damn billion dollar mall!! Maybe that's why they appear to be so short on funds(we know they aren't.)
They would never ask you to donate directly to the Red Cross, hell no, that would take away their ability to control "your" money. Why would they do that? Oh, and by the way, unlike the Red Cross and other charities, we'll never be able to see any report of where exactly the money went, what it was spent on or who, if anybody, it helped.
Why? Because the Mormon financial books are secret, not just secret, top secret!! Even the Members that donate to this "non-profit", "tax exempt" organization of Jesus Christ himself, are unable to see where one penny of their money goes. Why? Cause they would be busted!! We are to just trust "God's anointed."
So, in other words, they answer to nobody apparently. I'd like to know what they pay their tax lawyers to ride that line of what is legal and what isn't in order to keep their tax exempt status alive and well. I'm sure they are exploiting ever loophole known to mankind!! I don't blame them for that, who wouldn't, but just show us what your doing, after all, you owe that much to the people that give up their food and in some cases, well being, to pay their 10% to the Church.
When Hinckley did his interview with the German reporter during the Olympics in 2002, he was asked why the Church didn't open their books up to the world like they do in other countries and here is how that exchange went:
IN MY COUNTRY, THE…WE SAY THE PEOPLE'S CHURCHES, THE PROTESTANTS, THE CATHOLICS, THEY PUBLISH ALL THEIR BUDGETS, TO ALL THE PUBLIC.
WHY IS IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOUR CHURCH?
WELL, WE SIMPLY THINK THAT THE…THAT INFORMATION BELONGS TO THOSE WHO MADE THE CONTRIBUTION, AND NOT TO THE WORLD. THAT'S THE ONLY THING. YES.
Here is the link for those that want to see the transcript or watch the video of the interview:
All I can say is that I was a Member for over 30 years as many of us here and I doubt that any of us were able to sneak a peak at "that information."
So, what are we led to believe and know? That Gordon B. Hinckley is a very dishonest man, has a lot to hide and a damn liar. I think this is pretty indisputable!!
So, would I ever give one cent to the Mormon Church again, knowing that they never ever have to report to me where it goes? HELL NO!! The Mormon Church is no more honest on where the peoples money goes than the people that just create a website every time their is some type of tragedy!! My guess right now is that they are just asking for donations to try to recoup what they feel they have already sent out in the trucks.
Plus, all you "TBM's" out there, keep paying your regular tithing, fast offerings, mission fund, perpetual education fund, building fund, along with this new fund for this current tragedy. Like the September Ensign(Page 43) shows us, pay them $500 a month or more. After all, that is a very small price to pay for all of the blessings in your life that come directly from being a member of God's one and only true Church on the face of the earth.
My advice, give your money to any reputable charity, specifically the Red Cross, Salvation Army, instead of the Mormon Church for all of the reasons stated above. At least that way, you can be almost sure that it will actually help somebody and not just make the already rich Mormon General Authorities, even richer.
