    The tax deductiblity is not the issue.  He is required to give 10% to his church.  If he is required to give it, it is not an act of charity, it is a tax.  A tax collected by the Mormon church, but a tax nonetheless.  If he gives more than 10% to his church that would be an act of charity; the 10% is no more an act of charity than paying his taxes.  

    The issue is, what has he done to help others, to serve others that was done willingly, generously, graciously, through love, not obligation?
