Mormons are bound by their doctrine to give to the Church of Mormon. They have no choice, it's not something he did out of the goodness of his heart. It's not a voluntary donation like in most religions other than Scientology.

Its voluntary regardless of what their doctrine is.

Mormons are required by Commandment of God to pay 10% of all their GROSS income to the LDS church. This includes all income - including: employment, unemployment insurance, student loans, pell grant checks, Social Security income, Medicare, foodstamps, trust funds and any other form of income, even including finding money on the ground.

He's freeloading by paying less taxes?

Interesting.

Didn't you know? It's considered greedy for a rich person to want to keep the money that they made or earned through investment, but not greedy for someone like Rodeo to want more of his money than he's getting.

By the way, Christians are supposed to pay a minimum of 10% of their "increase" as a tithe also. But, they don't always.

It goes to building stuff like this, very very little to actual charity.

Reasoning is irrelevant, bleeding heart liberals like you are the reason this country is bankrupt literally and morally.

To busy trying to appease everyone.

The fact remains he voluntarily gave up an additional 29% of his income.

That's wrong. The 10% figure is from the old testament where it's instructed jews tithe 10% to their synagogue. The New Testament does not instruct Christians to tithe 10%, it talks about the importance of giving and says you should give as you are able. That is a far cry from "You must pay the Church of Mormon or go to hell."

If you'd like to know anything else about your religion there are plenty of atheists here to tell you.

If I want to appease everyone, why am I about to tell you to suck it? Suck it.
