A week or so ago, I had an cyber stranger who informed me that he didn’t like that the Quorum of the 12 of the LDS Church was comprised of all white males. I respectfully told him that the United States wouldn’t have a Constitution if it weren’t for some smart white guys.
And all the girlies [and boyies!] say they’re pretty fly
for some white guys!

In the late 1890s, the Mormon Church was deeply in debt. Lorenzo Snow, the then-president of the faith, prayed for help and inspiration. Thus, came the revelation of the modern tithe, as announced in 1899 in St. George, Utah. Within a few short years, the Church was out of debt. And we NEVER will be in debt again. Never. Not to brag or sound worldly, but the cash flow of the LDS church has been surging ever since (hint: We. Are. Rich. But we use the money well and none of our leaders are paid!)
Though I know this is probably impossible, I sure wish our modern government would take SOME sort of look at how we (Latter-day Saints/Mormons) do things. Cuz we know how to get things done, be efficient, be responsible stewards with our money and properties. And there is no one in his/her right mind who can say the same about the United States. Trillions of dollars in the hole doesn’t just go away…

We need more than just a passing glance
at the efficiency of Mormon finance!
