Lord Almighty Exempts Unearned Income

Richieville News Service – SALT LAKE CITY
Mitt Romney, who in past years donated millions to the Mormon Church, will be largely exempt from tithing in the future thanks to a new ruling by The Lord Almighty, Creator of the Universe, Omnipresent and Omnipotent Ruler of the Cosmos. The Divine Spirit issued a statement on Monday, saying that He/She/It had been swayed by arguments made by the Republican presidential candidates and that henceforth, income from investments such as capital gains, interest and dividends would be exempt in the eyes of God. 

Speaking from the planet Kolob, which Mormon scripture teaches is God’s home planet, the Supreme Being made the announcement through a burning bush visible in the sky from most of the Northern Hemisphere. 

“I don’t want to do anything to hurt job creators,” the heavenly voice declared. “Also it seems we have to reward risk-taking on the part of multimillionaires who otherwise would put their money in old mattresses or bury it in their backyards. So from now on, I’m just going to expect donations from the poor suckers who work for a living.” 
The bush went on to say that Governor Romney would still have to tithe on the income he received from speech making, but the Almighty didn’t expect it to amount to much since it was only about $374,000 a year.
