Are you aware that when the hurricane pass through there last fall, these chapels were open to members only. Further, those haitan members who did seek shelter there received no food or water during the course of their stay.
Your information is out of context:
"While most Mormon buildings were being used as hospitals and shelters, the particular building mentioned was taken by the government to use as a command center. The [volunteer, unpaid] leader of the congregation did not realize he might have been able to convince the government to allow them to also set up shelters. Once the building was taken over by the government, he appears to have felt it was entirely under their control."

(Captialism is the natural outgrowth of human freedom.)
An apologetic, totally at odds with the story it is trying to obfuscate and the testimony of those involved.
A large building is capable of holding more than a few government workers.
If such a structure cannot be a shelter in a storm, what good is it.
If the decision and resource allocation process is that deficient - to allow a government enitity to ‘take over’ the building without clearly specified conditions that the lds agree too further adds to the questionable nature of the apologetic.
Guess it is easier for the mormon church to spend 4 billion in a SLC shopping mall eh?
