+1000 although many LDS execs do not fly first class, they fly in the Huntsman jet. Not sure whether they are snorting cocaine off hookers asses inflight.

Can't imagine that John Huntsman does much of anything other than call his own shots. The Cult caters to him, not the other way around.

Save this and bring it up every time someone claims that Utah is #1 when it comes to charitable giving. Strip out tithing, and I'd bet that Utah falls to #50...or close to it.

^^ this, and don't forget- In the 80's when it came time to do the mission president thing, the lard didn't call him to places like: the Nicaragua Managua mission the Alaska, Kodiak mission or the Ghana Accra mission No... For a chemical/plastics magnate, the inspired call was to the... ...wait for it... Washington DC mission! Right during Reagan's tenure I might a

When you have that kind of walking around money, everything is a "Country Club". He isn't asked to scrub a terlit. He isn't asked to have mishies living in his house. He isn't asked to have three non-paying church jobs. He isn't asked to teach "primary". He isn't asked to go home teaching after a long day at the office. I'm pretty sure it's just little more t

“My philanthropy is not borne out of my faith,” he told Forbes. “They require 10 percent tithing. I don’t consider that to be philanthropy and I don’t consider it to be part of my philanthropic giving. I consider it as club dues. People who put money in the church basket and people who go to church and pay the pastor: that isn’t real philanthropy, that’s just like you belong to a co

If Huntsman buys the SL Trinune, that's just empire building for him. It has nothing to say about his philanthropy. If he really wants to do good in the world because he cares about people, he will just donate to charities without needing other people to think he is great because he donates to charities. He can make anonymous donations if he wants to and not talk about it publicly. Although the p

Huntsman certainly recognizes that TSCC does not do real charitable work in the world. That he takes it one step further and compares TSCC to a country club - where dues are required to be members - is telling. I also doubt that he pays 10% on this *gross* income. Hinkley was always sucking up to Huntsman and used Hunstmans private jet for church use. I wonder if Hunstman considered the cost o

His philanthropic gifts, including the Huntsman Cancer Center at the U of U, make a profound difference in the world. That's more important than the percentage of his money he donates. And if Huntsman buys the SLTribune which he is rumored to be considering, he will rise even further in my estimation.

Didn't the church claim in their defense to the lawsuit by Tom Phillips, that tithing is optional? We're getting mixed messages here. Which is it...? Tithing is optional or not optional? More doublespeak from the church. No wonder people are leaving this morally corrupt organization. John Huntsman is a slimebag. "Be like me... pay tithing and give a lot to other charities". That's e

I started referring to tithing as the cost of getting your "magic kingdom club card". It is much easier to explain the temple dues that way to my never-mo fiance.

Loved this quote from Huntsman: “They require 10 percent tithing. I don’t consider that to be philanthropy and I don’t consider it to be part of my philanthropic giving. I consider it as club dues. People who put money in the church basket and people who go to church and pay the pastor: that isn’t real philanthropy, that’s just like you belong to a country club.” Yes they do re

....(and I am able to see it AND comment on it) has amounts set aside for local homeless shelters and other charitable organizations that the congregation chooses to support. I do have to respect Huntsman. He does not drink the mormon kool aid. Lori

Kathleen was a wonderful woman and a great friend to me. I owe my sobriety to her because of the support she gave me during my stay in rehab. I cannot believe this has happened to such a wonderful person. Addiction lives in all types/classes of people. I will truly miss her greatly.

I took a class from Susan Easton Black at BYU. She said that all of the modern day prophets were related (through John Lothropp) except for two. I believe Hunter was one of them. I don't remember the other. Just checked Wikipedia and it looks like lots of people are related to Lathropp: George H. W. Bush George W. Bush Millard Fillmore James A. Garfield Ulysses S.

That has as much chance of happening as snow at the equator, given she's a media person, they wouldn't risk the bad PR. Also, with her well connected family, with money, they wouldn't think of it. Different "justice" for different folks is a true sign of a false "political" church. Perhaps the brethren should excommunicate themselves, if indeed this is the way things are.
