Letter: Death is upon us — now is the time to tap the LDS Church rainy day fund

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Wealthy members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have established charities through which they deliver their tithings and other donations to the church. The arrangement has delivered tens of millions of dollars to the church while helping the members avoid paying capital gains and other taxes. In many cases, records show, the charities' primary or sole function is to pay the LDS Church. (Photo illustration by Francisco Kjolseth) (FOR WEB ONLY)

Dear Mormon Church: The rainy day is here so you might consider loosening the tight grip on the $100 billion fund. They won’t be using paper currency after the rapture. Help the people of Utah now -- all the people, not just “yours” -- to improve survival against the rampant coronavirus. China built a hospital in ten days. Utah hospitals are beyond capacity. Could there be a better time for serving your mission? It’s raining death.

Norma Tharp, Murray
