  •  The argument doesn't sway me. (0+ / 0-)

    Mormons, Catholic, Anglican, they're all organized by hierarchy. Strict hierarchy.

    •  Of course it's a hierarchy (0+ / 0-)

      But the power, influence and span of control of a Mormon Bishop does not equate to that of a Catholic Archbishop or Cardinal. Just as the VP of finance at a small or medium company doesn't have the same as at a large company or giant corporation.  There are about 25,000 Mormons in Massachusetts, and nearly 3 million Catholics.

        to take in $8 billion a year with assets of $40 bn, according to Salon. But who knows? It's been 50 years or so since they reported anything.

        It's a church, it's a business operation. The small number of people involved in the hierarchy makes it more prone to a particular limited agenda IMHO and thus to abuses.

        I'm already not terribly comfortable with the fact that Utah is in essence a one-religion state. And not by accident.
