Priesthood is just... relabeling. :? Just see the Support Section: "No More Tithing Settlement." :roll:
Priesthood is just symbolic. Not real power, just symbolic of power.

As Crazyhampster can tell you, the only power religions have os hampster power, derived from people running in a hampster wheel.

At least a hamster running on a wheel gets a bit of exercise in the process.

The LDS-Inc. Hamster Wheel™ provides absolutely nothing of actual benefit to the being on the wheel. Nothing.

Wait, theirs no P in hamster?

Imagine if a hamster had to pay to run in the wheel and all he got for it was shame for not running fast enough to please the Sky Hamster.

But it's all worth it! The more time and effort he spends running in the wheel, the greater reward he can look forward to... AFTER he dies.

What’s with all this crazy hamster talk?
