Donations from the LDS Church

The evangelical Salt Lake Theological Seminary needs money or else it will have to shut down. According to their spokesperson, David Pascoe, the seminary will not seek money from the LDS church and will not accept money if it is offered. Pascoe told the City Weekly, “How could we be funded by the LDS Church and yet have that same authoritative voice for important differences, and be respected by the LDS Church?” Why doesn't Pascoe ask the Catholics, Episcopalians, Buddhist, and other religions who have recieved donations from the LDS Church for various projects. Somehow, they all still find the dignity to continue their religious practices.

I find it ironic that an evagelical society can so egregiously commit the first sin of the "Deadly Seven."

Remember how nasty that Baptist convention in SLC was a few years back?

I find it ironic that many hardcore conservative GOPers that happen to be LDS somehow ignore the fact that their fellow hardcore religious conservatives don't consider them one of their own. They see Mormonism as something other than Christian, or at least not nearly as good as say being Baptist.

I'm sure there's a joke in here somewhere involving the phrase "marriage of convenience"

I think you might also consider that smaller independent churches- like most protestent dominations ultimatly are- might be a little more nervous about another church's influence than large organizations like the Catholic church.
