News about Mormons, Mormonism,
and the LDS Church

 General News
  Boston Temple Challenge Oral Arguments Heard
The 1st Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals heard arguments Monday over the status of the Boston Massachussets Temple. Three neighbors of the Temple have challenged the zoning law that allowed the Church to build the Temple, claiming that it favors religions, in violation of the U.S. Constitution's first amendment. The case could even set precedent, as the neighbor's lawyer expects it to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
