Salt Lake City, Utah–In a move that nobody saw coming, but that everybody should have seen coming, the First Presidency has announced that it will replace Moroni on the eastern spire of the Salt Lake Temple with a statue of the Christus.
In the official announcement about the decision (announcement pending), the First Presidency explained, “After careful consideration, we feel that replacing Moroni with Christ will make us look less weird. It’s part of our church-wide campaign to erase our weird cultural icons.”
The letter continued, “After the earthquake knocked out Moroni’s trumpet last year, we realized that God was trying to tell us something. We are just finishing the work that he started.”
