    wait isn't this a violation of the religious rights after all the first amendment says religions get to do what every they want and government cannot interfere.

    Shouldn't this be a problem for ALL of Utah? Every law enforcement officer and public official who has been through the LDS Temple has allegiance to something other than the Constitution, both of the State and the US.
    If you are going to pick on Fundamentalist Mormons you should hold the larger Salt Lake branch to the same standard.

    RE DEKTOL:

    Your statement shows a deep ignorance of the "allegiance" LDS members owe to the Church and civil government. All members of the LDS Church are counseled to obey the law. Their Twelfth Article of Faith states, "We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."

    Where does it urge allegiance to their Bishop, Stake President, or President of the Church?

    "Every law enforcement officer and public official who has been through the LDS Temple has allegiance to something other than the Constitution"

    Wrong. Active members of the LDS Church "believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law". How is this a "problem" for all of Utah?
