There’s a lovely design blog I visit occassionally called chrisglass.com, and I happened to hit it today and found this nice post about the Mormons. As a gay man, Chris made the effort to visit the Mormon Temple Square as a follow up to the horrors the Mormons unleashed with their support of Prop 8 here in California.
Rather than anger, his conclusion is beautiful:
I love music of all sorts, and very much appreciate choral arrangements.
I also love architecture, and Temple Square is filled with magnificent examples of thought, design and construction.
Walking inside the square I was greeted by friendly folks around every turn. Upon entering the Tabernacle the sound from the choir was glorious. It was as if each section sang with one voice.
It was beautiful.
I hope one day this church can see the beauty in me.
