Salt Lake City Creates No Church Zone

Yesterday the Salt Lake City Council passed an ordinance banning the construction of any non-Mormon churches within 1 mile of Temple Square, the site of the Mormon Tabernacle. This was in response to a poll of city residents showing that 62% of responders oppose the proposed construction a branch of Rick Warren’s Southern Baptist Saddleback Church. The Mayor is expected to sign the new law tomorrow.

According to City Council spokesman Robert Smith, the Saddleback Church and Community Center would be only three blocks from the Tabernacle and might even be visible from parts of the Tabernacle. He stated that the Council in no way questions the right of churches, as a matter of religious freedom, to build wherever they wish but that they must comply with local zoning laws. The Council respects the 1st Amendment but church officials must have the wisdom not to build where it would offend the sensibilities of the residents.
