UC one of the things that Mormons are taught to distain is a "paid clergy" What that means for most churches is far less than your church president.

Since you have NO IDEA what you're talking about...NONE!...I think you ought to get off this schtick. You just sound mean and ugly.

ONE MINISTER of one of the Chri$tian megachurches in the Houston area makes many times the allowance Pres. Hinckley gets for living expenses.

Billy Graham and his entourage consume a hundred times more in one year than do all the LDS general authorities put together, in terms of expenses for their lavish theatrical productions they call "crusades."

You and your "Chri$tian" ilk are hypocrites of the worst stripe, and you WILL pay for it one day, if you do not repent.

Ohhhh he does not get a "salary", he gets an "allowance"...so what is included in the 'living allowance' ? Housing"?Utilities? Auto? (all belonging to the church and not taxable? Unlike the income of the pastor of the mega church..)..How much walking around spending money does he get? (More than the $25,000 that the pastor with the 5 kids gets?)

Bill changing the name from salary to "allowance" does not make him "unpaid clergy"....It just means that none of you REALLY know his income..or his wifes or kids that work for the church..

Billy Graham and his entourage consume a hundred times more in one year than do all the LDS general authorities put together, in terms of expenses for their lavish theatrical productions they call "crusades."

I hold no brief for Billy Graham..but much of his PERSONAL income is from books and soforth..and if we want to talk about lavish hey the temple in Salt lake ain't bad..and as far as productions go I have seen your choir..it is pot ..kettle ....black....
