The beautiful Ogden temple
The billion dollar reconstruction stands in stark contrast to the surrounding community. Travel a couple blocks in any direction and you will find people struggling to support their families with food and shelter and paying taxes in this life while being overshadowed by this huge tax exempt building for the dead. Less then a mile away is a homeless shelter ran by another organization, seems to me the priorities of the latter day saints are askew. Watch people struggle, spend millions on the dead who have no use of it.
Such a waste of resources, I suggest that expensive fixtures have no value in the eyes of God and Jesus would be more likely to spend those resources to minister to those in need today.
