    •  Which corp? Link please? (0+ / 0-)

      Please tell me who is profiting off the tithes other than the mission of the church (expansion and conversion)?  The charge was that the church was doing prop 8 for the money.  Please provide some proof of prop 8 for enrichment of a single person, persons, or corporation (which helps to enrich a CEO, CFO, etc.).

      •  They have two corporations (6+ / 0-)

        (maybe more, now) The corporation of the Presidency of the church and a holding company The Deseret. . .something (I don't recall now)that holds their stock interests in Airlines, Coca Cola, and numerous other businesses.  The holding company also owned businesses out right until most of them were divested in the late 70's or 80's.  Google will no doubt help you with more specifics and the corporations legal papers are public at the state capital.

        The church also owns almost all of the real estate of downtown Salt Lake City. . .not to mention numerous real estate holdings in many other states.

        They are very much into the money, and you can easily search it out.  It is very revealing.
