With all the turmoil going on in the world, it is so refreshing to see yet another emblem of the gospel being raised once again.

Not vary attractive building. Time for a new architect.

Seriously? Comments about the temple's architecture and Moroni's proportions are totally missing the point of the article. If you haven't seen the Angel Moroni being placed on top of the steeple on a temple you should youtube it. It is amazing, there is only one or two cranes that can even accomplish this task. As to weather the statue looks to tiny or the building is not attractive. . . . is all in the eyes of the beholder. Just like each one of us, it's what is inside that counts.
