More About The LDS-Owned Hunting Preserves

Some of you will recall an article I did a while back regarding the for-profit hunting preserves owned by the LDS Church. I still get a fair number of visits to my blog because of that article, but I think that some of you missed the update I did for Mormon Matters with more in-depth research on the subject. It's been over a year since I wrote that article, which you can read here, but as far as I know it's still status quo with the hunting preserves.

Though Rock Waterman's latest post about Mormon Corporatism, I learned of a newer post regarding the hunting preserves which you can read here. Although there isn't really any "news" per se, the author includes some quotes that I did not include, as well as examines the ethics of the Church using missionaries for private enterprises -- among other things. I recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.

I'm wondering how the LDS church can keep calling itself "non-profit"...?

I was actually at Deseret Land and Livestock this last weekend (and no not to hunt, not my thing) It's a beautiful place.

What's wrong with the Church owning land on which hunting is conducted?
