Along with all this miserable rain, we’ve had some pretty kick-ass thunderstorms, and on June 15, LIGHTNING struck the Angel Moroni on the top of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple.
I figured this would be BIG NEWS, but it wasn’t. It just sort of floated away, mostly ignored by Utahns, who would surely take a lightning struck on SOMEONE ELSE’S place of worship as a sign from God that they were bad, and the Mormons were good, good, good.
According to a Desperate News story:
LDS Church spokesman Scott Trotter said Monday the lightning strike discolored the Angel Moroni statue, but no other damage was reported.
“A work crew will re-gild the statue as soon as possible” he said in a prepared statement.
I’m taking this as a sign from God, since no one else seems to see the relevance of this particular lightning struck. Oh yeah, I’m GOING there. GOD does not want the Angel Moroni to be gold. GOD wants to the Angel Moroni to be black.
Hmm. Maybe half-black? A mixing of the races?
What message do YOU think God is sending?
