A Fantastic article from BusinessWeek on The Church of Latter-Day Saints Holdings Inc.

Highlights:
“In the Mormon worldview, it’s as spiritual to give alms to the poor, as the old phrase goes in the Biblical sense, as it is to make a million dollars.”

"The Mormon Church is owned and run by what is called the “Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”... which is an obscure legal body owned entirely by one person... Monson, the prophet."

"...the LDS Church is likely worth $40 billion today and collects up to $8 billion in tithing each year."

"They spent more money on a mall in three years than they did in 25 on humanitarian aid"

"The church gave $1.3 billion in humanitarian aid in over 178 countries and territories during the 25 years between 1985 and 2010. ... less than one-third of the sum was monetary assistance, while the rest was in the form of “material assistance.” ...[Evenly distributed,] the church gave $52 million annually. A recently published article... estimates that the Mormon Church donates only about 0.7 percent of its annual income to charity; the United Methodist Church gives about 29 percent."

The 2011 Brodie Award nominations are in, and I'm in two categories! If you have enjoyed reading my blog, 'Progressive ExMormon', you can vote for me in the following two categories:

Best New Blog: 'Progressive ExMormon'
Most Poignant Personal Story: "Life After Death"

The third annual Brodie Awards are to highlight excellent work from all over the LDS-interest internet (both critical and apologetic views). The awards are named after Fawn M. Brodie, who authored one of the first comprehensive (and critical) biography on Joseph Smith entitled, "No Man Knows My History".
