Mormon church leaders call out racism and say abortion is evil
"Abortion and racism were topics on the first day of a virtual Mormon church. Conference, calling abortion evil and issuing another plea for members to combat prejudice and racism. Leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, beginning a virtual church conference without attendees because of the pandemic. One church leader Neil Anderson, in denouncing abortion, also lamented that fewer Children are being born around the world. Even in the most prosperous countries. Cora member Garry Stephenson called on members to be welcoming to people of all faiths and ethnicities and to fight cyber
Star of ‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ accused of wire fraud
"We're talking about the real housewives of salt lake city again. I didn't watch this. Everyone loved this season. It premiered right warm as them was involved so that was very of interest to a lotta people they made. It made it a little interesting. It's like oh. These women are talking about the mormon church right. They're talking about the mormon church and they're talking about converting 'cause she was a mormon gen sean that she was like you know what like the mormon church has been very terrible. The black people in the past. Like i'm going to convert islam. And so like she has this interesting relationship to salt lake city right so long. You understand why all these women were cast this. This happens this week. She gets arrested for multiple crimes. So allegations are wire fraud conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. Basically what she was doing was working in this. Multi leveled multi layered scheme. They call it the business opportunity scheme and the thing which involves collecting and creating and selling lead less lanner way. Yeah well it's when you start a company and you want to kind of hit the ground running with your company. You can buy a lead list. And i was googling this on a lot of people have problems with lead list because they can reliable. They're really rely a list of people's names and numbers essentially right contact information and the information about Names and numbers. Email address all their demographics. And then you have this sort of like set group of people who probably likely to respond to whatever your company is right. Suckers is what you're saying suckers suckers and so she's developing these lists and also selling these less so she's making money on the selling of these lists which the best of my knowledge are really expensive. Like if you're starting a company and you want to buy lead list depending on the quality of the list you could be paying a ton of money right and it could be risky. And apparently there could be legal complications with even buying lists. I was reading about this. It was like beware of buying lead lists and so she was not only allegedly selling these late lists and creating these lead lists. She was working with the people who bought them so that they be using those lead lists to target. These older people susceptible people with business schemes. That were non existent and the old people would pay them a ton of money. And then jenn shaw would allegedly get a cut of that. I think i'm doing a pretty good job explaining what this is. But that's the wire fraud which is as our friend amina says that's is crime because that's always what they get rich people on that's the easiest crime to get people on because it involves receipts it's like is there. Documentation of z happening. Yes it's wire fraud.
Mormon church accused of covering up Boy Scouts sex abuse
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints in Arizona is now dealing with several lawsuits for allegedly covering up sexual abuse among Boy Scout troops. The lawsuit alleges church bishops would tell the victims to keep quiet so the church could conduct its own investigation. Seven suits were filed before a statute of limitations extension deadline passed by lawmakers last year for victims of sexual abuse to come forward and seek justice. Arizona does have a mandatory abuse
Interview With Leonard Matlovich
"I'm eric. Marcus and this is making a history in september. Nineteen seventy five. A stunning issue of time magazine. Hit the newsstands. On the cover. Was the photo of a young man wearing his air force uniform. His name tag said lich and the huge headline read. I am a homosexual. I had just started my senior year at hillcrest. High school in queens new york. By then i knew i was gay too but i would have died before admitting to anyone and i sure wouldn't have announced it on a cover of a magazine with millions of readers. I'd like to think. I admired leonard math for his. But it's more likely than i thought he was crazy. I never got to interview leonard. He died by the time. I started work on the original making a history book but studs did. And i'm glad we get to share. Leonard's voice thanks to our work with this radio archive one of the things i love about our history is. How many threads come together at different times. One of those threads was the tireless work of gay rights activists and firebrand. Frank cami frank is featured in his own making gay history episode but his name comes up and plenty of other episodes two and he played a pivotal role in leonard story. Frank had been looking for a test. Court case to challenge the military's ban against gay servicemembers in nineteen seventy five. Leonard stepped up to the plate. The thirty one year old air force tech sergeant declared his homosexuality to his commanding officer and when he was discharged he sued for reinstatement. It was the first case of its kind. And leonard instantly became the public face of a bitter fight for equal treatment of lgbtq servicemembers that continues to this day. Leonard was a picture perfect spokesman. He had an exemplary record was a decorated vietnam vet and taught classes designed to ease racial tensions in the armed forces. He was a patriot a conservative and a believer. He grew up catholic and later became an elder in the mormon church. But before. Leonard became champion for equality he. I had to overcome his homophobia and racism as you'll hear in his conversation with studs terkel which was first broadcast on november fourteenth nineteen seventy five. Just a heads up. Some listeners may find what leonard says about his past racist beliefs to be shocking cases. Obviously to be a member of the one. Of course. we're breaking through something involving what is more macho than the military army in this case the air force and this is of course this. You're right in the heart of heart of machismo. Are you not to say the least. And they want to keep that image. And i think it's a crazy mixed up world. We live in when we're rewarded for killing hating and punished for loving macho image. It's a wrong image. It tends to make people want to kill into murder. So we gotta go back to the beginnings without madam who are you. Where'd you come from. Well i usually tell people that My father spent thirty two years in the air force. So i tell people that i was born in georgia. Raising alaska joined the air force in england. I'm a resident florida virginia. Visiting chicago today. When i say that everything that i am and everything i hope to be out of the united states air force i was born here. Air force base and graduated from air force high school and most of my higher education has been through the air force so it's been military and even the ability to do what i'm doing today to fight the regulations that are considered unconstitutional. I have to that the air force to they gave me the courage because they kept telling me over and over again. And i kept telling the classes i taught and human relations and race relations that anything less than equality injustice is not tolerated in this country. You were of a different political entirely confederate flag. I idolize for many years. it was a symbol of on. I don't have words for a symbol similar to the past and the way things were they should still be necessary. Slavery but the white of the right of white oppression dedicated for barry goldwater door to door handing out literature for him. I oppose a sixty four civil rights act with fervor just went and of course no questions about vietnam war oh absolutely i spent three tours over there just like my country or fight the war for my country for equality. It's strange vietnam. The fight for a yellow man's equality. I hated blacks in this country.
All Your Genes Are Belong To Us
"The story of gene patenting kind of starts in the nineteen seventies when scientists figured out how to modify genes in a lab until nineteen eighty living. Things mostly couldn't be patented but that year the supreme court said i guess. These new modified genes are inventions. And pretty soon after that the patent office started granting patents not just on those modified genes but even on genes that scientists had just managed to isolate an extract from the body which started this huge genetic goldrush hundreds of new biotech companies popped up and suddenly the human genome started to look kind of like an uncharted surveyors map with hidden treasure. Worth millions of dollars just lurking out there in the genetic code by the early nineties. One of the biggest genetic treasures was the gene responsible for most cases of inherited breast and ovarian cancer the b. r. c. h. Gene and women with the brca gene have up to a seventy percent chance of getting breast cancer. Compared to about just ten percent for the general population. There was an enormous international race to find this gene and when myriad genetics was founded in one thousand nine hundred one winning the race to find the brca gene was a top priority geneticists. Sean teigen was one of the first people hired at myriad genetics. I had never heard of myriad. In fact i was roughly employee number. Ten sean and myriad hoped that if they could find this gene they could diagnose people at risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer and create tests and treatments for it nasa whereafter in the end is to add years to the lives of the people who buy you know unfortunate chance inherited a mutation in one of these genes. The trick to locating this gene is to identify families where breast cancer clusters. And then if you compare the dna of the people in those families who got cancer versus older people in the family who never got it. It will probably lead you to the gene and in the race to find this gene. Mary has a huge head. Start mostly because of its location in salt lake city. Utah has this comprehensive database of anyone who's developed cancer in the state. It is also home to the mormon church which famously keeps extensive genealogical records show. They're thinking when if just cross-referenced reference those two databases they'd have themselves a ready made pool of promising dna candidates and then they could get straight to mining for mutations sean and his team at myriad get to work. They are working around the clock all hands on deck. How did you guys think about what the stakes were for you. Guys you know in this race returned to arrive there. I i was merely an existential question for the company. There wasn't any doubt about that. It was like if we can find this than the company is going to be successful. And if we don't find it we're probably gonna shrivel up and go hundreds of other scientists around the world were also looking for this gene if myriad doesn't want to shrivel up and go away they have to get to it i after four long years of mining. Dna myriad finally strikes gold they find the mutated gene living on chromosome seventeen from what is now known to be base pair. Forty three million forty four thousand two hundred ninety five to base pair forty three million one hundred twenty five thousand three hundred and sixty four myriad extracts and isolates gene and almost immediately stakes its claim on it by filing a patent but profiting off of that patent turns out to be a whole other problem. There's just no good way to make a drug or treatment based on this gene so instead they focused solely on making a test that would tell people if they have the gene. Though even tasked will be hard to make money off of because brca is like say cova testing where you might get tested over and over or a drug the take every day you know the same person will use a particular patent drug again and again and again and again but they get the information that they are mutations carrier wanted to. They don't need to have that test again. It's done so. The prophet situation is different. Myriad cooks up a solution to this profit problem i. They will make the cadillac of tests the very best cancer gene test of all time and they will charge a premium for it then myriad starts using. Its patent to do what happens. Do best to create a monopoly if anyone else tries to make comprehensive diagnostic test based on their brca genes including some researchers myriad says kindly cease and desist last piece of the prophet puzzle. They get to work driving up demand. Genetic testing for breast cancer was relatively new thing. People didn't really know about it yet. So myriad launched a big marketing campaign aimed mostly at doctors and clinics. But then they test out something that hadn't really been done before with genetic testing breast cancer runs in my family. My mother my dad's sisters. I wondered if it would be inevitable. The trade marketing their test directly to consumers talk to your doctor or visit brac now dot com myriad says they invested around five hundred million dollars to develop and market the test and that they didn't even turn a profit until two thousand eight and says patenting. The gene was the key. That's the only way myriad could get the time and money needed to create what they deemed one of the most sophisticated genetic tests to date attest that gave more than a million people information about their risk for breast and ovarian cancer. But as you may remember not everyone saw myriads business model in the same positive light first of all that direct marketing to a broad swath of consumers less than ten percent of women are even good candidates for this test so there were concerns that myriad was encouraging all of these people to try to get a test that most of them don't even need that cost thousands of dollars before insurance and back at the. Aclu that lawyer. Chris hansen by the mid-2000s he'd spent a few years learning all about gene patenting and looking into the ways myriad was doing business and he had a few concerns of his own for example. Chris says people who did take myriads test might have been getting a false sense of security because his cadillac of tests. The original version of that test did not screen for several dangerous mutations in the gene which came to light after they'd gone to market so that even if you are a result back from myriad saying you're fine you weren't necessarily fine which you know. Science is a process of learning but once myriad realized its mistake and fix the test if customers wanted to take their new and improved. Test that identifies mutations that was gonna cost extra and chris says myriad police it's gene patents so aggressively that no other comprehensive. Brca test was available. So if you were worried that myriad had missed something. There was no way to get a second opinion myriad. Genetics was the only place in the country. You could go if you wanted to be tested other labs could could technically do be. Rca screening were not allowed to do so because of Myriads hat myriad told us. Look we only actually filed two lawsuits against our patent but scientists. We spoke with told us that myriad also sent out a ton of letters that threatened legal action which had basically the same effect of shutting down testing efforts and many scientists were already frustrated with myriad because the race define these genes in the first place had been largely collaborative among scientists around the world and yes myriad had found the gene i but they've done it with the help of everyone else's published work and then they used their patent rights to essentially claim testing for it all to themselves and because really only myriad could test for these genes only they could gather certain kinds of really valuable new data about inherited breast cancer they collected and years of data most of which they also didn't share with the rest of the breast cancer research community. They had this gigantic database of brca one jeans and the various variations of the brca jeans myriad refused to share that database with the scientific community. We spoke to the folks at myriad and they told us that they didn't want to share their genetic database with the broader scientific community out of a concern for patient privacy. They say the pricing of tests has always been proportionate to the costs of developing and bringing them to market and they say they're patent strategy was in line with others in the industry. But chris's concerns went. Far beyond myriads business model far beyond myriad used it's gene patents for him myriad was just a symptom of a much more fundamental issue. The real problem to chris was that genes could even be patented at all. The notion that some private company to own a part of my body and i can't look at it without paying a royalty to some private company seemed to me blindingly obviously a civilization and when chris hansen sees a civil liberties issue. He knows what to

"Across the Arctic Tundra of Alaska. We've seen indications of that similar trends are occurring in Canada in your Asia. So we're at this point really just trying to get a handle on how rapidly are these creatures colonizing the Tundra and what are some of the basic impacts that we should expect in the coming decades Another reason that the beavers are there they're no longer being hunted way they were. You know when perhaps their pelts were more valuable. Yeah. Beavers are still rebounding from all over trapping in the nineteenth and early twentieth century in Alaska. So it's partly the climate change is growing taller shrubs and making for more unfrozen water habitat in winter it's partly the climate change is improving their habitat and allowing them to move. Into, the Tundra, but it's possible that we're also seeing partly a rebound from over trapping in the last two centuries. So it's probably a combination of those two things and in terms of mitigation as I say, we really haven't got to that point yet I don't think anyone wants to go out and shoot and trap a bunch of beavers and I don't see for coming back into vogue anytime soon. So What to do going forward? I think is is a difficult question. But in the meantime, it's just again it's an understanding of wow. You know there are so many it's like the butterfly wings the flutter that can be felt around the world and industrious beaver may be having an impact on our climate absolutely, and you know what's unique about beavers is there's lots of animals that are responding to climate change. Species moving northward, for example, but the beavers are pretty unique in the they like humans are exerting their own impacts imparting their own changes on the landscape as they do that and I. think that's what makes them exciting to study scientifically, and and perhaps a little bit scary in the range of seriousness of climate problems that we're looking at where would you put this beavers potentially happening melt permafrost, which then will release carbon and other methane gases into the air are put a pretty serious and the reason is that if we were talking about a few dozen ponds this. Would not be a very big issue would be more of a novelty. But what we're really talking about is a novel disturbance regime in the Arctic. What we're really talking about is ten thousand pounds in the Alaskan Arctic Tundra that is ever appeared in the last twenty to forty years, and so when you start to extrapolate that to a global scale, you're really looking at potentially hundreds of thousands of beaver ponds that have been these oases that have been added to the landscape, and so I think I think it's pretty important now.

"Year. Also, the huts that they build store food talk about these ponds you mentioned, of course, once this permafrost now there's water on it. The water presumably could get warmer than the permafrost and melted. What are the concerns there will permafrost is the global concern of this issue of beavers moving into the Tundra permafrost has been frozen in many cases for for thousands of years and beavers move into the area and they inundate the Tundra. And when they flood the Tundra that water transfers heat to the ground better than the pre existing Tundra vegetation. So mmediately, when you build ponds on permafrost, you begin to thaw that permafrost, and so that's sort of why this is more of a global concern and you you know you can release the greenhouse gases, carbon and methane that are stored in that permafrost as the global concern but really the beavers transform the entire ecosystem. Becomes warmer. The bio-diversity Probably Increases Fisher of did, and so they're really creating these focal points or away sees on the landscape for boreal species to gain a foothold in the Arctic well, in the greenhouse gases is no small thing. Permafrost things are frozen in amber in there including greenhouse gases, things that are there. So there is concern about the gases going into the atmosphere. You're also reminding us that they're changing the landscape and you have new habitat which should be done about this I. Don't think we've even got to the stage of mitigation yet because we're still trying to figure out where exactly how many of these ponds are being built. You know we saw. In our study area, my colleague, Ben Jones at the University of Alaska was the one who led the study and he saw that you know in this smaller study area over twenty years, it went from two dams to ninety eight dams in the larger study area. I think it was ninety four dams to almost five hundred dams and we're seeing those changes across the Arctic Tundra of Alaska. We've seen indications of that similar trends are occurring in Canada in your Asia. So we're at this point really just trying to get a handle on how.

"From NPR and Wbz I'm Robin Young on Tanya Moseley. It's here. Now president trump says, he will announce his nominee to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday, and Republicans now say they have the votes to confirm that nominee despite arguing back in twenty sixteen that confirming justice during an election year was the wrong step to take here. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham last night on Fox News. The nominee is gonna be supported by ever Republican in the Judiciary Committee and we've got the votes to confirm the judge the Justice on the floor of the Senate before the election and that's what's coming. NPR Congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now and Kelsey only two Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have said they would not support a vote before the election. And this morning, Utah Republican and trump critic Mitt Romney said, he won't be joining them that instead he will support a vote on a nominee. I recognized that we We may have a court which has more of a conservative bent than its had over the last few decades. But my liberal friends have over many decades gotten very used to the idea of having a liberal court and that's not written in the stars Kelsey does this basically mean a vote before the election is done deal and the the nominee will be confirmed. Well, at this point, we don't know exactly when vote will happen Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has been very careful not to commit to a time line here he said that if what will happen this year but he's not so that it would be before the election in part because that would be. A kind of a record breaking feat at this point, Republicans were quick to point out to reporters all throughout the day yesterday that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed in forty two days and forty two days is exactly how long there is from this day to the election and president trump said, he will not be nominating somebody until Saturday so they would be racing against an extremely tight clock if they hope to get it done before the election. The Democrats have any standing at this point I mean there are talks of impeachment and adding justices to the Supreme Court. If if Democrats win control of the Senate, how likely are those scenarios at this point, I have very little control over what will happen when it comes to voting on a Supreme Court nominee they cannot prevent the Senate majority leader from moving ahead with a vote if he has enough votes to do. So however, they can turn this into a bigger broader political issue, which is what they're doing by having those conversations about packing the court or impeachment. As. You mentioned it's because they are running right now not just for control of the White House but for control of the Senate and Democrats are now honing in on a message that essentially a vote in this upcoming election will determine whether or not. There could be the potential of adding justices to the Supreme Court and you know there they're also talking about things like the affordable care act and they're also making this about abortion rights. So this has really homes the message for Democrats about what is at stake in the election beyond just who is in the White House. President Trump met yesterday with appeals court Judge Amy Conybeare, it considered to be the lead contender to take this open seat left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Why is she seen as someone at the top of the President's list? Well, there are a lot of reasons for of Ramey conybeare to be a she is well supported by Republicans and she has a track record as. Being very supportive of the Anti Abortion rights movement she has spoken of unborn victims of abortion, and that is extremely appealing to Republicans as they way whether or not to attempt to repeal raw rovers his weight. So she has a lot of appeals for Republicans in addition to the fact that she's been vetted, which makes it much easier for her to move forward. Very. quickly, who are some of the other? Folks that are on trump's list that he's considering for nomination. One person that we hear about a lot is Barbara. Go of Florida One of the things that president trump has spoken about six. No pretty frequently that he's talking about young. Jurists primarily people in their forties another person as allison. Jones. Rushing who's the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and she's she's thirty eight. So this is a young group of women who the president would like to advance. That's Kelsey SNELL NPR congressional correspondent, Kelsey as always. Thank you. For having me. As the country passes two, hundred, thousand deaths from covid nineteen and NPR analysis shows that the disease is shifting away from the country's biggest cities of the first one, hundred thousand deaths less than a quarter happened outside large metro areas. Now, that's almost doubled its nearly half further out in rural areas. The number of deaths has nearly tripled. We've got NPR data editor Sean mcminn, and standing by Kirk Siegler who covers the urban rural divide for NPR. He's based in Boise Idaho. So Sean Stat Guy Start with this statistical divide. Remind US why did this happen? Right. So the beginning of the pandemic, it started obviously outside the United States, which meant that are international ports of entry were initially the most vulnerable. So New York, of course made up a big chunk of the first one, hundred thousand deaths, and that's one of the most urban cities in the world. So there. Was this feeling the beginning only it's only happening in these places because people live. So close together it's not gonNA spread to small towns and rural areas. Unfortunately that's not how it played out, and there's a couple of reasons for that. One is you had some people who are fleeing those urban areas and bringing the virus with them. So with Kim start at a small outbreak can spread much quicker if you don't have or can't afford you know a big contact tracing effort public education outreach or whatever else some of these larger cities health departments have been doing. Well, and then Kirk siegler there in Boise. Early on, we spoke to a nurse who went from Boise to New York City to help and was shocked at what she saw and she wanted to warn people back home. This could come to you was she right Well yes and even at that time actually here in Idaho, there was a big outbreak going on in a rural area but broadly, I would say you know rural areas you're naturally social distancing and there was some reluctance to adopt some of the corona virus restrictions because people in businesses felt like well, here is another policy crafted with only cities in mind but you know it became clear quickly that rural areas were not going to escape this just by geography and that was the big fear that these rural hospitals. That don't have the capacity that they'd get overwhelmed and then the cities would be overwhelmed and they wouldn't be able to transfer their patients there and you know we have seen us some pretty big gatherings. I. Should mention to fact there was a large Rodeo. The a here in Idaho where a lot of lockdown restrictions have been eased but it's not like the cases are dropping not fast in any way well and Sean again NPR's data editor. How does this urban to rural shift changed how we fight the virus? In. Some ways it is a little bit easier to deal with and and rural areas. But that doesn't mean that people are totally living in a bubble. You still have these big events. In fact, we'll kind of surprise me reporting this story was father's Day. I talked to a public health official down in South Texas, his county had hardly any cases during the spring and then he said it started all around Father's day that day became part of this chain of events that led to this tragic situation where they're at almost over fifteen hundred deaths at this point that's an all go county in. South Texas. Right we've reported on and where else have we seen a spike outside of cities? Places like Broward County outside Miami and San Bernardino outside La they both saw big increases in deaths over the last few months is a place called galax Virginia which was a in the south west of the state. They have twenty deaths there but only seven thousand people live in the city. So on a per capita basis that's worse than New York City even though New York was of course, have much higher the number of people killed by the disease. Well, and then Kirk Siegler Boise, we know that essential workers in inner city hospitals are more at risk but is there something about the lifestyle or kinds of jobs people in rural areas have that make them more or less susceptible to covid nineteen I?.
Tyler Glenn: I Can Feel You Feel Forgetting Me
"You know as artists become more famous. Lies, and their experiences often become less relatable and I think we see that show up in their work and I. Bring that up because I think that things are singing about this new album are shockingly relatable and relevant to the people listening I have some specific examples but that's something that you think about or are concerned about. Take probably I always want to feel like I'm relating to the audience listening to it and to me I suppose I'm famous to some people and I I suppose my band is popular but I I still live like a very I dunno I some of it must have to only coming out a few years ago feeling like myself. So I feel like I'm still very much like I don't know. Does that make sense like just a person with a phone trying to navigate romance with APPs and like I I still just as much of that even though I have access to other things and maybe a platform I mean you bring up romance I think one of the things that like I struck me was about being ghosted and ghosting and I was like, Oh yeah I guess they must people do have. To deal with that as well. Yeah, and I also have seen the flip I've used ghosting to sort of get out of a thing. It's this weird thing that I'm exploring in my own life is the modern phenomenon and we were given all this power. Maybe I'm too happy about it but I think we're still in the middle of even understanding what that is and the power of that and how it. Affects our people and things like that. I feel like I've had one public relationship right after it came out I really wanted to work and I realized like still had so much inner stuff to work out an exit I sit here with you as a thirty six year old man and I'm like I don't know if I've ever really been in A. In a relationship that actually is healthy life is also public and also like rewarding the both of us it's interesting thing I'm still navigating as a as a guy. You know I think for me. It's been the last few years of just like why what is codependency like? Why am I feeling this way? Why might seeking someone so hard to fulfill me and it's like it's probably stuff that sounds very juvenile but from me I, there's aspects of things that I do feel you know I'm still having to experience myself. I mean I think you named check codependency on at least two different solid in. That's not a word of ever heard in pop music before lake. Yeah it's a running theme. It's repetitive lyric on purpose I. Think I not only with the person that I'm directly talking about his record but I think my own codependency with my devices, my own codependency with alcohol and drugs as as a Mormon kid growing up that was Jones in my head that that's not what you're supposed to do but you're also not supposed to be gay. And I knew I was gay. So now I'm I'm without labels. As an openly gay man also not subscribing to that fifth expression anymore. I feel like I'm not certain basic things. Does that make sense or are you saying because mormonism has so many? knows. You know you can't drink alcohol drink coffee. You can't smoke that. You're now late twenties early thirties like figuring your own relationship to alcohol and like everything I. Think. So I think it's even less about the no it's also the coupled with the idea that like. And I know mormonism is an exclusive religion that exclusively feels this way. But like it kind of combines this this greater existential crisis with drinking coffee for example, like the fact that you couple that with with sinning. So it's this weird. been this navigation of way I woke up hung over me and I'm an alcoholic I don't know I'm just figuring out maybe stuff you do in early twenties and get through it doesn't make sense. It makes sense and I have to wonder if that is something that everybody our age is feeling and thinking about it just looks more like a personnel cylinder light your life probably, and that's been the beauty of being out I've been out for six years, but I've only really been in my body as a gay man. Without the trappings of certain things for the last three or four years, it does make me feel less alone and made me feel like this is just an isolated experience when I when I see like people that have no relation to. The things that I grew up. Bonn are still like fumbling with and sort of figuring out I live in Salt Lake City now, and it's a very still like reminding of the Mormon Church but I, don't think about it all the time until I have to share myself from my story and. You know for better for worse. That's a big component of my. My Life is how that's affected me and me getting out of it and how that's affected me

"mormon church" Discussed on The Journal.
"Were. You surprised that there would be a hundred billion dollar fund for this kind of end of days Scenario yes and no on the one hand. The number itself is unbelievably jarring especially with only sixteen million Mormons on the other hand. Mormons have been famous for a long time for sort of preparing for doomsday scenarios. The church for many years advised members to have at at least a year supply food year supply of water a year supply of fuel. Things like that. The church actually has an absolutely massive grain silo Kylo in Salt Lake City. And they say that none of this is for the second coming specifically but a lot of people including members of the Church continue to think that it is when you were sitting with these inside peak officials. Did you ask them about this theory. Yes yes we asked them and church officials said that this was was simply not the case that they did expect. Jesus Christ return at some point. But they didn't know when that would be they didn't know what that would look like. They didn't know financial assets would have any value at that point and that the money was about the work they wanted to do to build the church before then and not about preparing for for the second coming. Are they defensive offensive about that. I mean why would clerk say this privately to people. But he wouldn't say it to you. They were defensive about it and in fact search leaders are very sensitive about their beliefs about the second coming being misconstrued and when we asked about it in the interview their head of public relations interrupted US and admonished us to be respectful in the way that we write the story. So I have a follow up question for Mr With regards to the second coming. How would that work in terms of the investments that intend colds? How would you get assets investments if there was if second incoming were to happen? I hope you'll be respectful. Our faith in what we believe as Christians as Church of Jesus Christ latter-day Said's we are very respectful and we view the Savior's role in our lives is very important. So I just hope the nature of your questions as respectful of your dog is well they all affirm that they believe in the second coming that they believe. It'll happen at some point but that is absolutely not what the money is for so of all of the things that they spoke most clearly and emphatically on this was actually yet where they were denying. The second coming had anything to do with why they were putting this money away. Given these denials Ian and Rachel wanted to better understand the funds secrecy if this money is really for an economic downturn. Why haven't they talked publicly about it? After they they left a sit down interview with church officials. They caught Roger Clark in the lobby. He gave a different answer about why they've been so secret about the fund that that I think was very illuminating about their fear that if members knew how much money the church had they would think twice about tithing latter-day Saints believe that the point kind of tithing isn't necessarily to enrich the church that it's about showing your commitment to God and being willing to make a sacrifice and they believed that God will bless those who tie hi. I thought that was a very important point. And painting paying. tithing has more of a sense of commitment that it is pitcher needing the money so they never wanted to be in a position where people felt like You know they. They shouldn't make the contribution has the church didn't need it. Yeah so I think that may have played some part in during his trip to Salt Lake City in went to a church to ask congregants about this concern that they would stop tithing because of the size of the fund and it turns turns out. They didn't feel that way at all. Everyone I found there was very supportive of the church. They sort of said they were proud. That the church head managed the money so well and that members were successful and were able to tie them this way and they trusted church to continue to manage a responsibly and they would continue to tie ten percent themselves themselves and the fact that there was this huge pile of money didn't change that in any way other Mormons Ian spoke to didn't have a problem with the Fund in principle. But they wanted to see it. I used more immediately for charity. So one of the light spoke to his name Sam Brunson. He's a professor of tax law at Loyola University in Chicago. He's very active talking writing about issues in the church as well and so he said a hundred billion dollars is so much money that it could be used is to solve some major real world problem so for example he said they could put it towards helping radical malaria or they could put it towards fixing the electrical grid in Puerto Rico which was basically completely knocked out by the hurricane or alternatively he said they could just change the way that the church thinks about tithing what a number of people are saying. Is that the church already has so much money. And that tithing doesn't have to mean donating to the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day stance that it could mean donating donating to other charities that it could mean work and this is an idea that I've heard from a few people. Seems like news of this. Big Fund Fund is casting doubt for some Mormons about their tithing. which kind of makes you wonder? Why is there so much secrecy? Yeah and what does the Mormon Church standing gain from it. After having reported on this I am no closer to understanding than I was at the start. Art What is gained by being so secretive about this fund. A number of people I talked to members of the Church should've said if the church would just come out right and say openly. This is how much money we have. Then he actually wouldn't be such a big deal. It would cease to be this kind of subject of intrigue that it is now and and by continuing to not disclose what their holdings are. They've just made it this guessing but just how rich is the Mormon Church and the church in talking to us for the story has started to answer some of those questions but I don't think they have answered them to the satisfaction of all their members..
Mormon Church accused of stockpiling billions, avoiding taxes
"The church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints whose members are known as Mormons is facing allegations of financial fraud a former investment manager for the church has filed a complaint with the IRS he says the institution holds and misuses charitable contributions close to one hundred billion dollars we hail is reporting on the story from member station K. U. E. R. in Salt Lake City come morning Lee the morning before we get into the specific allegations this is a big deal because donations are very important to this church right yeah I mean the church's Chrysler the saints like most churches are a lot of churches I should say as for ten percent of all income of their members be paid in typing the interesting thing is that please most that money for facilities missions vingtaine work what's left over they invest and that's where David Nilsson comes in okay so who is David Nelson and what is he alleging so he's the whistleblower who filed the complaint to the IRS and he's a former employee of the church's nonprofit investment arm it's called ensign peak advisors and he says ensign peak would receive about a billion dollars of excess typing a year and over time and through some clearly successful investment strategy they ended up with a hundred billion dollars the church is not confirm that figure they don't have to by law but Nielsen argues that ensign peak this investment arm there how to complaints their tax exempt status because they receive this tithing money invested they haven't made any charitable donations from that money they have no no charitable contributions and so instead they've used it to bail out for profit companies the church also owns how are Mormons reacting to these allegations about misuse of money that they've donated yet when it comes to like typing members of the church I think most of them will likely agree with church leadership and the official response in the church has been that the vast majority of typing is used for the purpose of helping meeting the needs of the church and the church he's also said that the claim is being circulated are based on their perspective and limited information they need and defended their right to invest the money invoking the parable of the talents things the sound doctrine on financial principle taught by Jesus in the New Testament other members of the church had a different reaction they've referred to this as hoarding and they're really upset that this a hundred billion I'm for investments isn't being used in religious or humanitarian efforts what is the parable of the talents that you mentioned there basically Jesus is instructing these disciples to go and make basically magnify what they've been given you know to kind of grow what they've been given and basically that this is an example of them growing the the money they perceive investing yeah okay listen knows these claims to turn out to be true what are the consequences for the church potentially well I spoke with a law professor Sam Brunson Atleo Loyola University in Chicago who's an expert on this kind of stuff and he said that the whistle blower is correct that no money has gone to charity than this investment arm of the church risks losing its tax exempt status while but importantly he says that the church itself is not risk the church itself it is not at risk why well because they have the separate investment arm which caused the problem but it's also going to shield them from potential fallout Lee hell with member station K. we are thanks so much for your
