Just because there is a temple in Gilbert, that doesn't mean the majority of the city council is LDS. Given the discrimination against this little church, I would certainly hope not. Maybe everyone needs to write letters to the Gilbert City Council.
I know that there are a lot of LDS people in Gilbert. A temple was just dedicated there. When that happens the adversary works a lot harder to thwart the plans of God. Agency is one of the greatest gifts our Father in Heaven has given to His children. I would imagine the majority of the city council is LDS and that is disturbing. Whatever happened to love and tolerance? When in the midst of great persecution, both from within and without the church, Joseph Smith penned these inspired words: "We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where and what they may." It seems to me that the lawyers, lobbyists and special interests have taken it upon themselves to interpret everything to suit their own twisted desires. It is time we as freedom loving members of the Church of Christ stood up for what is right and true. Apathy is a weapon of the evil one. Stand for truth and defend those who cannot defend themselves. If we do not stand for something we will surely fall for anything. Let the spirit of Captain Moroni ever pervade our thoughts and actions.
