There will be a cross on the LDS Rome temple when it's complete.
Thanks, Marie, for the revelation.
LDS President Monson must have had a little chat with God up on the planet Kolob . . . or does God come down to Salt Lake City? . . . about using a Cross atop an LDS temple in Rome. Apparently God said OK, revoking President McKay's dictum banning the Cross because it is a symbol of the Catholic Church.
This scenario is similar to a time back in the 70's when BYU's masterful football coach, LaVell Edwards, needed black kids to bolster his teams, and huddled with President Lee to ask God to allow blacks to become "priests" . . . banned at that time . . . which would enhance his recruiting program (or so the story goes). Apparently God said OK.
When I was living in Vista, CA, 25 years ago, two young, bright-eyed, LDS missionaries came to my door wearing Roman collars. This must have been some sort of trial tactic because I haven't seen it since.
The upshot is that the LDS cult will resort to just about any canard or hoax to lure the unsuspecting and unedified into its fold. A Cross on top of an LDS temple in Rome, instead of a golden "Angel Moroni" tooting his horn, is just another example of its devious trickery..
