LDS businessman's city for 1,000,000 people in Vermont

Post by Mormon 8 »

First it was a 500,000 person metropolis in Florida but apparently, they wanna build a city in Vermont too that accommodates a million people. The 'church' denies any involvement and allegedly opposes this.

Uh huh.

I don't know why they don't just quit pretending to be a religion and just convert to a bonafide for-profit real estate corporation??? I mean, it's not like they can't afford to pay taxes when one account from one business entity has $124 billion sitting around. Just come clean with who Joseph Smith really was and drop the religion label already!

Just so we're clear, the actual LDS church is not a part of this. It is entirely a private enterprise. Or am I mistaken?

According to the article, you are correct.
​“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.”

Pretty sure this project has been abandoned.
