Tithing and AMP Program
« on: October 31, 2006, 02:37:02 PM »

I am LDS and am considering paying my tithing toward FTL and other freedom oriented organizations. My question: Does it still count as tithing? This poll is for everyone not just the crazy Mormons.

Sure, and get all your LDS friends to listen to the show as well!

I was just thinking the other day about how freedom-loving Mormons could benefit from the FSP, and how the FSP would benefit from a demographic with a very high birth rate and history of successful political migration.  We'll get them pesky monogamy laws lifted, and the Republic of New Hampshire will have more people than Taiwan in no time!

Just don't expect all your neighbors to believe in the Golden Tablets written by Native American Israelites, or even more bizarre, premarital abstinence.   :wink:

The Lord works in mysterious ways.  If the spirit moves you to donate to FTL, then that's your call.  Not sure if you'll be able to stay in the good graces of the church, but you can certainly judge that as well.

I am LDS
I know this is way offtopic, but I swear, every time I see "LDS", I think of the Star Trek movie where they go to San Francisco and Kirk is apolgizing for Spock's behavior:
  "He was at Berkeley in the '60s... did a little too much 'LDS'"

Wiki: "A tithe (from Old English teogo├ża "tenth") is a one-tenth part of something,..."

Can't call it a tithe if it's other than 10%. Call it a love gift and I'll spill my lunch. I hate when that happens.

and the fact that he'd just done a mind meld on a pregnant whale.
