Plus the rule is there not for the public but for the internal workings of the church so people in the church won't know how much is given, except of course the committee that meets to determine if one is a good enough Morman and can enter the Temple. Not every Morman can. One of the main reasons is whether one is paying how much is expected for them to pay. Unless they do, and fulfill other religious obligations, that member will not be called "Temple ready." This is being thrown out there after he has already given that information in 2 tax returns, The guy is hiding something...that's all one can assume still.

Then he says he's not releasing his taxes because he doesn't want people to see how generous he's been to his church? That doesn't pass the smell test or the logic test. I want to see Mitt Romney's birth certificate and his grandfather's 5 simultaneous marraige certificates.

His excuse doesn't hold water. The church keeps their records private but everyone knows to be a president you have to give up some privacy, like your tax records.

It’s up to him to prove that he earned it, and releasing his records will prove it one way or the other. That's right. Because SURELY Harvard Law School would cover for the President while he lies about having been President of the Law Review! Y'all are freaking crazy -- take your meds! “Don’t forget those question marks still earnPresident Obama the esteemed, honorable, enviable, and coveted position as President of the Harvard Law Review.”

If it's that important to you; if the tithing is the priority, then that should be reward enough. Why do you need to make sure you get the tax break too? Is he that stupid? or does he just think we are that stupid? If you want your tithing to remain between you and God, then don’t claim it on your taxes.
