After four months of fighting a proposed nine-story building at the LDS Church’s Missionary Training Center in Provo, neighborhood chairman Paul Evans, who has spearheaded the opposition, buckled to pressure from the church and is bowing out.
A similar invitation has now been extended to church members in the MTC area who have objected to the proposed tall building as being incompatible with the neighborhood and a violation of promises made when the MTC was approved in the 1970s.
That represents a shift in what church leaders had maintained was a purely secular matter.
According to church members in attendance, Randall then delivered what he said was an “invitation” to the congregation to “sustain” the leaders in their decision.
Anybody want to guess the odds that the church will send “invitations” to Romney should he win the election?
