In a diary entry of his biography, LDS church historian Leonard Arrington wrote the following under “Things I don’t like about the church”…

“Appointing the highest tithe payers to positions of leadership rather than the most capable or worthy. In choosing stake leaders, the General Authority comes with a list of the 15 or 20 highest tithe payers and starts down the list to choose a stake president and high council.”
