  1. Q = what is the Church's legal stance on "converting" drug addicts in the rehab program? Ward Bishops are left on their own when these new 'converts' beg for an apartment of their own under the guise of "starting a new life" when actually they use the Church as Enablers and go about their usual preferred lifestyle. After the Bishop cuts off the funds to these coniving 'train wrecks', the landlords are left with unpaid rent, court fees, police reports, and damage repairs. Why is there no official way to deal with these obviously insincere "converts" other than the Bishop's intuition???

  2. That's not exactly on topic, is it? That problem sounds like a policy issue to me, unless the Mormon bishops are co-signing and then refusing to pay the rent. As anyone familiar with residential real estate can attest, a landlord undertakes considerable risk when he or she takes on a renter without ensuring their financial stability or ability to pay rent. Simply put, there is no "legal stance" on the subject because it is not a legal issue.
