A new Mormon symbol could make its way into the Salt Riverdale Mormon Church’s fall gathering this fall, if a new website is to be believed.
“I think there is a new symbol, and I believe that’s going to be worn,” said Elder Robert A. Turley, a member of the Salt Creek Mission of the Mormon Church.
“It’s not the old Mormon symbol, but it’s a good one.”
Turley is a member and senior vice president of the Utah Valley Mission, a non-profit church that has its headquarters in Salt Lake, Utah.
He said he was not sure how long the new symbol would be on display.
“We have been told that it will be a few days,” Turley said.
“There’s no way of telling if that’s true.”
The new symbol is an attempt to reflect the Mormon faith’s strong emphasis on family.
Turleys grandfather, Elder Joseph F. TurLEY, died in a fire at the age of 70.
Turbys father, Elder William J. Tursey, died at the hands of a drunken gunman.
Turkes church has been under attack for the past decade, with its members accused of sexually assaulting teenage girls.
Turson said he believed that the new Mormon icon would be “a little more appropriate.”
“We’re not going to wear the old one anymore, but I’m not sure that’s the right choice,” he said.
The new symbol will be worn by members of the LDS Church in a church hall in Salt City, and in church-owned vehicles.
Turry said the new logo would be printed on a large black card that can be passed around in church meetings.
The new logo will be on a new LDS website called Mormon Symbol, which is scheduled to go live on Saturday, Aug. 23.
The church hopes to have it up and running by Aug. 28.
According to the Mormon Newsroom, the church is working with a designer who was hired to create the new icon.
The designer said the church will be using an entirely new logo.
Turly said the logo will reflect the spirit of the new faith, but not necessarily be a Mormon symbol.
“I’m not trying to be provocative or anything,” he told the Mormon Messenger.
Turles comments echo those of the current church leader, Dallin H. Oaks. “
In my mind, it doesn’t have anything to do with our faith,” Turleys comments.
Turles comments echo those of the current church leader, Dallin H. Oaks.
Oaks has said that the LDS church has a “strong and strong faith.”
The church has not yet released the new LDS logo, and its website is still live.
There is a petition on change.org to get the Mormon church to use a new logo for the church.
“The LDS church is the largest religious institution in the world, but we are also a nation of immigrants,” said Turley.
“So there is always a need for a symbol to show people how to recognize their immigration status.
That’s what this is.”
