I remember this is a man who occupied the Oval Office for four years, and there wasn't a whiff of scandal. Now we really can't say that. Many of our presidents. And I think that people, you know, their estimation of Jimmy Carter is only going to grow as they look back at his just plain, decency is common sense, his hardworking ethic that he brought to the Oval Office and those are qualities, you know, we want in our president. Last question, did you enjoy writing the biography of Jimmy Carter? Not all biographies end up enjoying their subjects. Oh, yes, I did. You know, my book is critical of him at times. You know, he wasn't a very good politician. He disliked the wheeling and dealing that goes on in Congress, but I admired his integrity and his relentlessness. Thank you so much for being here.

The Supreme Court heard arguments today on a case to determine if section two 30 of the communications decency act should be narrowed in its protections of online social media platforms. It involves a case brought by a man whose daughter was killed by the Islamic State in Paris. His attorney Eric schnapper says the way the current law is written, YouTube's algorithms pushing ISIS content out to users, do not shield it from liability. Here's his exchange with justice Samuel Alito. It is acting as a publisher, but of something that they help to create because the thumbnail is a joint creation that involves materials from third party and a URL from them and some other things. So if YouTube uses thumbnails at all, it is acting as a publisher with respect to every thumbnail that it displays. Yes. Supporters of section two 30 say without the legal shield, free will be stifled on social media platforms.

"In he do he head around. Kedah stand by my rules that okay gonna make sense to you right. We want exists right right. The conversation they would minutes long. We have treated like a book club. But yeah who. Who do you think is in heaven in that. I guess my question to you is this. How do you think these people get to heaven. You believe there's a ghost that lives inside of you that is you. That doesn't need a brain to have all your thoughts and all your memories and has no material existence whatsoever. It's completely immaterial and it really is you. And when the body dies the real you goes to heaven. That's what that's what you believe right. You're asking about like a spirit. The of the soul around and pontificate on it or does the mormon church pontificate on it. What is the answer to. What is a soul because that is where the whole thing starts and falls apart for me. Sure it's like oh you don't know what happens after you die. I say. of course i do. We've all seen a dead thing. It deteriorates it's gone and they. Oh you mean the invisible ghost that lives inside of me. That has all my memories that you have no proof action exist. You know what happens to that. After i die right. We're not to that point yet. You you gotta prove that thing exists and then we'll talk about what happens. Yeah that's fair. i mean. I don't think you can ever prove that that exists or disprove that it you know. You can't prove that it doesn't exist. I mean so. The answer for a mormon as to what the soul is the sole is the combination of the body and the spirit or another word that we use his consciousness so we do believe that we were a consciousness before this life we were born into a spiritual body with heavenly father and heavily mother then we get physical body here on earth with earthly parents and all of that continues and is reunited and the resurrection okay so but a sole yep a so for us is body and spirit. It's both it's both and common christian. Vernacular soul often is just spirit. We we disagree on that okay. But if i were to die in this moment yup my soul you believe. My soul is still inside my body. Your spirit would continue. Soul is not wear that would my spirit be your spirit would then enter this phase of spirit the spirit world right either spirit paradise without on your case prison for sure without my body correct. Yeah without your body. The soul the soul apart from the spirit. The soul is the combination if you think about it as an equation spirit plus body equal soul so for me. Part of your question doesn't make sense because a soul doesn't exist without a body. Okay so then. We need to talk about the spirit so came to spirit. Can the spirit have thoughts. Yeah i think so. I think spirit feel pain. I think so. I think that's part of what you know. A remorse and repentance is about okay where in the spirit or guilt and shame. Yeah we're in.

Mormons will remain pure for each other but record scratch. He has not had the same commitment to the moment. Yeah so things. This is where things take a turn. Because i was a call very sweet of you to and then she tells her friends more about steven's been talking a lot with one of his female friends and the friends think that that's weird. And then we stephen asked her if he can date other girls which i thought is that a like a language mix up maybe but then i think it makes sense And then her friends suggests.

I would listen to over and over and a lot. A couple of friends who are like one of them is very successful in the others. You know the success a different kind of successful and and the challenges and insecurities that go along with that but for the most part i mean that's a that's a. That's a sexy problem to have you know. Oh poor me. I have to deal with my my the mentality of my incredibly successful whites. And and and you know ninety percents of of any any Discussion we have. I come out the the luckier for her insight. And her expertise. I mean because you've both been in the business about the same time correct. I mean as far as professionally. She she blew up. So so dang early. I mean she. She graduated from juilliard and like got carousel immediately. And i was like what was that like ninety six. I wanna see those like mid nineties. Yeah yeah i think so. When you and i were landing at disneyworld i think shoes winning her first tony awards so getting our equity cards at the same time. Maybe gone by the time right a little different track. I think that's one of the. It's both a beautiful thing but also can be a frustrating thing when people are on different tracks. I mean i take you an eye for example you know we're we came along disneyworld around the same time and you showed up at new york little bit before may but there's been a similar trajectory however compared to me you are the more successful when you have achieved things that i'm still waiting on and so there is beauty in the fact that we can all make it in different ways in this career but frustrating when looking at other people who are what you aspire to be like the the people that were also nominated with you when you were nominated for a tony it. How do you deal with that kind of frustration of seeing others. Who are doing what you wanna do. Well i'll tell you what and it's taken me a long time to get to this point. Hopefully still getting this point. I in life. I feel like the things that i valued. The most are the things that i've had to work the hardest stat. And i am super grateful for for the challenges that i faced getting to this point. I think if i had landed in new york and like you know hit the ground running and was massively successful right off the bat. I don't think i value it as much. So i'm just. I'm grateful for the scrapping that i've had to do. I think it's made my jonah call at success The old a little sweeter in that It's taken taken a long time to get here. As as i know is the case with you as well in your personal life is other sort of Beasts to wrangle at the same time. Sometimes you just got you know. Give your energy to that and try to try to stay afloat in life and your aspirations for a successful acting career. Press pause on that in order to to get a hold of yourself You know our lives have both taken. Some pretty crazy left turns that we maybe didn't foresee when we when we started out and You know made it all about the business and nothing but the business. We probably wouldn't be here. We probably would have had to make a other life choices that wouldn't have led us to where we are and and i don't think i would be as as a may. I hope i'm well adjusted. But i don't think i'd be as we all hope that we're getting there but hope. Hopefully you choose your sanity and your happiness. I when when it comes to the the trajectory of how you navigate this this life and not just the business. Because we've we've both been married before. And it was actually during our first marriages that you and i met and got to know each other in orlando while at disneyworld and i remember the struggles that i went through after my marriage ended took me while to cover just to that new chapter in my life and you know and as you said it. Affected me both personally as well as professionally. What was it helped you through that. Tough transition kind of back to single life again. That's a big question I mean the big answer is is audra helped me But at the same time. I had to figure out who i was. It felt like from scratch when i when i left the church and and got divorced. You know like i said earlier Growing up in the mormon church. It's just it's it's everything about who you are and And so stepping away from that. Was you know Years long process of getting the strength to kind of say. You know what this. This doesn't work for me. i just don't i. I can't i can't make it true. I've tried my whole life. And i just i. I can't make it true anymore. And i've i've tried every single thing that i can do. You feel like you're letting yourself down in some way you know and i felt like there was something wrong with me. You know morally and you know tried to and always tried to live the best life at i can. I'm far from perfect. And you know. And i and it would force me to focus on my shortcomings as a person and just just be myself off to no end And it was detrimental to my to my confidence in my soul. Just kind of feeling. Like i was this terrible unworthy person because i couldn't make this church true for myself. I know that for myself when my marriage ended. I know i lost a part of myself and i know that there was a a part of me that i either didn't know or just had to change because i was now amount a different place in my life so i know for me. There was just a part of me that got cut off some of my own doing some of her doing some of just the way that happened and it. It took me years as you said to rediscover to figure out. We'll what what am i doing. How do i get myself back. Absolutely finally after literally more than a decade of just as hard as i could and try to make it work and that having its ramifications on my relationship being massively challenging is like. I've tried every single thing that i could other than been stepping away so i did that. And that was also a long long process Gut wrenching wrenching process. Because you know it's it's everything that you've known believed in it. Felt very much like a like a A rebirth of of creating a person.

It was at that event that justin met don goodman a single mother mother in her mid twenties. Who had recently moved into town and was working a grocery store desperate to find a direction in her life. She decided to join the mormon church although she was said to be an outcast. Much like the helzer brothers will. Don began dating just shortly after the murder mystery dinner. She was reportedly fascinated by his cares. Medical brother taylor managed to convince her to join a self awareness. Seminar which consisted of spending a few days inside a windowless room while a facilitator aggressively badgered them to confront their inner demons which sounds like most university classes. I attended so not that crazy but no absolutely ridiculous After completing two of the seminars three levels don began receiving spiritual guidance from taylor. He had become completely unhinged by this point telling her that sometime in january two thousand it was his destiny to take over the mormon church by all means necessary. He also began calling himself. Don and his brother the children of thunder claiming that it was their mission to create a state of peace and joy for everyone.

We actually talked about it when the last podcast. Now caveat astronauts he may not be the biggest farmland owner post. divorce will see who keeps all the farmland. Maybe it'll be melinda but someone's going on it have you seen an actual gates impacts or tailwind whether it's the gates crews specifically or other institutions saying. Hey he see something. We need to really think about investing in the space. What's been the impact on that. It's kind of interesting because in other asset classes when you see big investors moving in in size attempts to move the market but in farmland to kinda take step back until who owns farmland in the. Us it's not the big agricultural multinationals investors investors including groups like the gates foundation and the mormon church and then all of funds both public and private. It had been buying the best estimate we have for what institutional owners own is about three percent. And we think that's at the high end. Your owner operators the family arms. Like that i grew up on own about forty percent and the rest of this actively farmed land owned by usually non-farming airs. So they could be an absentee landlord. They could be an active landlord. But they're not actively farmed two or three generations before their family probably was but they've gone.

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.

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
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

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
