Jerry Gordon’s letter on Tuesday, “Church assistance is redistribution,” evidences many people’s confusion between communism and a utopian society; government welfare and Mormon welfare; and even Democrats and Republicans. On one side, people are compelled to contribute funds that are then redistributed, and on the other side, people voluntarily contribute their resources for the benefit of their fellow men. I’m surprised more people don’t acknowledge the significant difference.
