Respectfully snipped. Do you, or does anyone, know more about this? His Bishop failed to help him? Usually, they don't delay when people can't pay their rent and likely are barely eating. We know he was likely sleeping in his car because of the blankets and pillows found. Why did his Bishop not give him immediate access to emergency housing and storehouse provisions? Do you think he knew Steven was virtually homeless? My observed history with the LDS may be different from other peoples' regarding the emergency help given in times of trouble. I never needed assistance but I do know of some families in crisis and unmarried women with job losses who were helped in the blink of an eye. Is it a location thing? Is it economic, as in less affluent wards give less help? Also, what about the job situation? Why didn't he get job placement assistance in the church department that handles this? I'm not sure he even had to go through his Bishop to get to the job placement center help. I am glad I am no longer LDS now. I had wondered at times whether I made a mistake, but no, if they let this man die because they didn't help him well or fast enough and he did something desperate, trusted the wrong people, or made fatal errors in other ways we don't know yet, then part of his blood is on the church's hands, IMO.
