The "lavish stuff" the Church has are income CONSUMING. They are for the edification of the world--yes, even an ingrate such as yourself.
The Church donates time, resources, supplies and manpower to worthy causes the world over, including Catholic Charities and many Protestant initiatives.
Again, you're trying to impute evil where there is none. You'd best turn your attention closer to home; somewhere another Robert Tilton, Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker or Benny Hinn is ripping off thousands of people in the false name of God.

And those same Christians who look upon Benny Hinn with disdain see Joseph Smith in much the same light.
A charlatan mocking the name of the Lord. A false teacher teaching a false gospel.

$25 Million for the San Diego Temple. $0 to the poor 45 minutes south or the working poor in San Diego for that matter. Nice fruits of Mormonism. Hinckley takes home $400K + in non taxable income. Steve or Woody: Do either of you have take home pay in that league? And why is it that the Mormons will not disclose their financials? In fact, they have not disclosed any financial information since 1959. All non Mormon churches make this information accessable. What logic is there to the Mormons not disclosing the money going in and out of the organization?
