That was a tithe-raising technique

"they are constantly moving large families
around whom they expect to support them through their tithes. These people end up spending all the money they procure on moving (you know how expensive it is to move?), plane tickets, buying or trying to provision new supplies in thier new location, and so on"

Actually this was their way of generating income, by making sure things didn't stagnate. Every drive to move south, to move east, to move to the farms, to move the cities, to go to the universities, to go micro, to get computerized, to go the non-profit route, every new change, just guarantees a push to raise funds to finance God's latest cause, and ensures the tithes roll in.
