Tithing Increases to 11%

Tithing Increases to 11%
SALT LAKE CITY, UT – LDS Church Officials announced today the first major structural change to their financing system since the Church's inception in 1830.

Explains an official church spokesman, "The worldwide recession has caused many of our church members to struggle financially. With basic costs of living rising, we wanted to provide a way for members to increase their blessings to compensate."

The increase will take place effective January 1st and a pamphlet answering questions about the new program is expected to be distributed to members before the end of the year.

The pamphlet explains that the increase to 11% should be considered by members to be a "tithe of a tithe", allowing members to double their blessings with only a small increase in actual expenses.
