CSB: While driving on I-15 through Utah after dark, seeing the Provo temple lit up made it seem like Minas Morgul and I imagined I was heading into Mordor.

utah dude: Fair_Poopsmith: utah dude: your tithe dollars at work.
Saturday's Warrior: utah dude:

what are your guys' stories? 

i'm a convert cause my whole family went Trainspotting on me.

Lifelong Mormon.  Started questioning the church's history at about 16-17, went through the temple, been in an Elders' Quorum presidency, called to the Germany Frankfurt mission in 2000, busted out of the Missionary Training Center in the dead of night after four days, hopped a cab and took a plane back home to Colorado.

Kept going to church a few more years until I was absolutely certain the church isn't what it claims to be, then stopped attending.  Kept studying, however, and continue to be fascinated by the culture and history of the church to this day.  Family is still all "true-believing" Mormon, and I refuse to have my name removed from the records of the church.  You could call me a New Order Mormon (http://www.newordermormon.org/).  Culturally Mormon, perhaps, for the past 8-10 years or so.  I think of myself a bit like a Jew who no longer believes in god but is still very much "Jewish."  I'm Mormon on my own terms- I appreciate a lot about the church, I think its history is totally bizarre; while I don't think the supernatural claims are in any way true, I think the church is full of good, crazy people doing their best to be decent human beings.  I love me some Mormons, and talking about Mormonism.   Looking into a graduate program on religious studies to further my research into the church. Feel free to ask me anything about the church- I'll answer honestly.

AverageAmericanGuy: Pricey: No value has been given for the cost of reconstruction but many are questioning why the Mormon Church didn't simply rebuild elsewhere

It's symbolic. If you have to understand why the restoration of an historic site is important for a religion, you don't understand religion.

Because it is on top of a sacred Native American site of a slaughtered tribe. But I might be wrong but that is usually why they build these old temples in certain place that have special meaning to cover the old joo joo with the new joo joo and probably why it caught fire in the first place.

Inexplicably, I'm reminded of this...

Friends, let me tell you something, however compulsory it may be.  There's no film.  I'm live.  Now, back to where we were when you last heard from me.  It was with Leviticus on the tenth, I believe.  Drink thee not, nor thee, thou sons, lest ye die.  Nor congregate at the corner tabernacle.  I'd like to take a short sabbatical...or a cup of coffee.  Or, I wonder, is there a doctor in the house?
