Lex Apr. 2014

Got a text summoning me to see the bish. It is either a calling or another discussion about tithing or my lack off tithing to be precise. Seeing as I want to leave the church neither are welcome but I just can not say no to these people.

The notion that Mormon Inc.--from its earliest days--has supposedly been a "lay ministry" is a line that has been laid bare as a lie. Let's run the numbers (as well as run through some of the relevant historical facts) to show exactly how this scam has been spun.
