10. The Mormon Church is a lot like the Mafia, IMHO.
Lots of fingers in lots of business pies. And lots of strongarm tactics and money laundering and tax evasion.

I heard when we lived in UT n the early 70s that the reason the head guy had a revelation that it was ok to consume Coca Cola (forbidden for decades) was the church had found it to be a rather lucrative investment. Pepsi, in which they had no investment, was still not ok to drink.
