LDS Church Shopping Center City Creek Center.avi

This is the shopping Center that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints are completely funding. There is a list of partners in this project, all of which are church owned businesses. Property Reserve, Inc. is leading the project, but of course this another corporate arm of our Church. When the project started a couple years ago it was estimated at 1.5 Billion. As any person with any knowledge of business/construction an estimate is just that...an estimate. The project is supposedly to be completed around 2012. The final cost in my opinion would be over 4 Billion.

Many non members and members question the expenditures that church leaders took into taking such a massive project. It is said that no tithe money is used on this project. Where else does the church get its funding if it does not derive from members tithing?

Interesting video, what he does not touch on is how horrible the old malls were.   I am guessing that mall rats, like I was at Crossroads mall, might not feel as welcome....of course that may draw them there.

"The people here genuinely want to welcome "other" people."  I call bullshit!  What the mormons want in SLC is to recruit new members.  There is always an ulterior motive with members goodwill.  It comes with strings attached.

Wait....so if the money came from investments and not tithing, where did the investment money come from in the first place?!

Tithing is put into investment accounts and then the interest earned from those funds is used for whatever they want.  Since it's not the tithing dollars themselves being used, I guess they feel this is justified and not dipping into sacred funds.

hmm...i see. It just doesn't seem right to me. And the profits of the mall go where? Back into the church? Or just paychecks?

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth..........in the end, he built a mall.
