ACLU Sues Salt Lake City Over Plaza


A two-sided sign declaring ownership of a block of Main Street by the Mormon church stands next to the plaza, Thursday, Aug. 7, 2003, in Salt Lake City. At rear, a couple poses for their wedding photo in front of the church's temple. The American Civil Li

SALT LAKE CITY - The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal suit Thursday challenging a deal that gave the Mormon church the right to regulate behavior on a downtown pedestrian block.

The lawsuit names Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson and the city, and asks the court to return control of the Main Street block to the city, which last week signed it over to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The ACLU accused the city of favoring one religious group over another when it completed a land swap giving up control of the landscaped plaza in exchange for land on which to build a community center.

"When government shows a preference for one religion it sends a chilling message to non-adherents that they are outsiders, and not full members of the community," Mark Lopez, an ACLU national staff attorney, said in a statement. ...

Msc, the main trouble is that the Mormons just about own the state of Utah. If you ever get the chance, read the appendixes of Mark Twain's, ROUGHING IT, it is a non-hilarious view of the state of Utah, not long after its founding. It shows what a theocracy without God's presence is like then and now. It's a good that the Mormon mullahs have an American background instead of an Iranian one.

The trick here is that Mormon property extends to the center of wide streets. It is truly a preference that most other churches don't get.

On the light side, looking at Mormon temples leads me to one inescapable conclusion; they don't waste money on architects, do they?

I'm not a Mormon, but there's no reason for the ACLU to be doing this. The sign says "owned and operated by the Church..." If the church owns it, let the church make its rules and regulations. Would members of the ACLU like people just walking and rollerblading across their personal property and homes? Maybe they would. But still, from what the sign says, I think the church should have a right to make rules and regulations. If the ACLU or anyone doesn't like it, just stay off the property. Is that too hard?
