(From San Francisco Chronicle, Jan. 31, 2009)
The report, filed with the secretary of state's office, listed a variety of California travel expenses for high-ranking members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and included $20,575 for use of facilities and equipment at the church's Salt Lake City headquarters and a $96,849 charge for "compensated staff time" for church employees who worked on matters pertaining to Prop. 8.
Pay Back Time!:
Could the Mormon Church lose its tax-exempt status? It could, it should, but it won't. We all know that. What it loses this time is its credibility.(Sacramento, California) A federal judge - U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr. - denied a request Thursday to keep secret the names of donors to California’s anti-gay marriage initiative, saying the public had a right to know who gave money to state ballot measures.
“If there ever needs to be sunshine on a political issue, it is with a ballot measure,” England said. He said many campaign committees have vague names that obscure their intent, and the public would have no way of knowing who was behind the campaigns unless they could see who was giving money.
...and a smidgen of righteousness.
Thank you, God!
