¬†1.¬†But,¬† during our¬†day (time; period; era; generation)¬†Ahaz¬†(capture; acquisition; seizure occupation; annexation)¬†has subjugated (triumphed-over; conquered) Judah (“Praise and expressions of gratitude to God”). Judah (Praise and expressions of gratitude to God) has been¬†conditioned (accustomed to something, especially something unpleasant)¬†to¬†Yotham¬†(being-silent; attracting as little attention as possible; making-no-commotion; making no waves) about¬†Uzziah¬†(“Zeal for God”; “Ardent Passion for God”)¬† which,¬†for countless generations,¬†¬†ruled¬†(inspired) Judah (“praise and giving thanks to God”). But sadly,¬†Retzin (priesthood leaders¬† who prefer to¬† “Dazzle-The-Eye”Image result for dazzle me gif of this generation; priesthood leaders who always appear to be extraordinarily happy, successful,¬† and prosperous)¬†have arisen¬†¬†(emerged; “walked on the stage”) to reign-over (govern; lord-over; rule; preside-over; sit as kings-over) Aram¬† (the Citadel; Mormon- Headquarters in Salt Lake City).

Their mission (assignment ; goal) is to¬†¬†“Open-The-Eyes of¬†(awaken) the sons (heirs; followers; subjects) of Remaliah¬†(“Those who are¬† stained blood; those wear the crowns in Salt Lake’s Kingdom”) to the wonders of Sorcery¬†(Enchantment; Witchcraft; Black-Magic; Dark-Arts).¬†

Jerusalem (“teachers of Peace and Salvation”) warn¬†(exhort; caution; counsel)¬†Israel’s people to resist (withstand the action and effect of)¬†Remaliah¬†(crowned-heads of Salt Lake’s Hypocritical Melchizedek Priesthood Organization)¬†and¬† their proteges (apprentices; lieutenants).¬†until now¬†(earlier; formerly; heretofore) Israel’s people¬†couldn’t even¬†conceive¬†(imagine) that it is¬†possible (attainable; doable; feasible)¬† for them (Israelites)¬† to¬†prevail¬†(gain-ascendency thru strength and superiority) over the powerful Melchizedek Priesthood Organization at Church Headquarters in Salt Lake City.

2. Nowadays,¬†¬†Remaliah¬†(“the crowned-heads of Salt Lake’s kingdom”)¬†and their “Partners In Crime”¬†(aiders and abettors; confederates who instigate, encourage or assist in the committing a crime) are illegally making (creating; operating; running)¬†a criminal enterprise) dressed up to look like¬†the¬†house (dynasty; bloodline; family; line of hereditary rulers) of David (“God’s loved Ones”)Image result for a stand of trees bent to the wind.

Their motivation is to abuse¬†(pervert; misuse)¬†David’s¬† platform¬†(“pulpit”; stage; dais; podium),¬† so they are free to falsely proclaim to the whole world that they alone,¬†are¬† God’s¬†Chosen-ones ¬†(choice-ones; appointed-ones; favored-ones; hand-picked prophets and apostles; shepherds) who are called (named; appointed)¬†by Him (Jehovah) to¬†govern¬†(lead; guide)¬†Israel’s people.

This situation has caused the¬†heart¬†(seat of faith; nerve; courage),¬†¬†that is so¬†characteristic of¬†Israel’s people,¬†¬†to be severely¬†“Shaken”¬†(worried;¬† nervous;¬† upset).¬†¬†

As a result, The tribe of Ephraim (those who constitute Salt Lake’s helmet;¬† “Salt lake’sImage result for mawage gif" window-dressing” ) has become totally¬†confused (unable to think clearly; bewildered)¬†about their role in the eyes of God and they’ve even become unable to make up their minds about who they think should be¬†leading (shepherding)¬†them.

So,¬† like¬†a stand (plantation; growth; thicket)¬† of trees, Israel’s people have become strangely¬†distorted (pulled and twisted out of shape; contorted;¬†fixed in a contorted position; deformed; warped; misshapen)¬†by¬†the force¬†(velocity; momentum; impetus) of¬† an¬†¬†evil-wind¬†(bad-breath; questionable-character; negative influence)¬†from¬†The West¬†(Salt Lake Headquarters).¬†blowing-against them¬†(bombarding them; pounding-them)¬†day after day (continually).¬†

3.¬†So Jehovah instructed¬†Isaiah, to charge (require; enjoin; command) everyone¬†who’s been rescued (touched; blessed; effected; delivered;¬† succored;¬† helped; aided) by Jehovah to¬†“Go (Go-forth; spread-out; proliferate) right-away¬†(immediately) and¬†proclaim (herald; announce) that the¬†“Authority” (power; dominion; sovereignty; jurisdiction) that was¬†once¬†(formerly; previously)¬†used to wrongly justify¬†(condone; countenance; rationalize)¬†Ahaz (illegal-siezure;¬† illicit-confiscation; unlawful-annexation)¬†now belongs to you (Israel’s people). ¬†

And………as soon as¬†(immediately at or shortly after the time that¬† this¬†(proclamation; announcement )¬†is-made¬†(is-accomplished; happens),¬† the “Remnant”¬†(whats left; the remainder) of Israel’s people will return (bring-back; convert) your children¬†(heirs; descendants)¬†subsequent-to (following)¬† the end (destruction;¬† ruin; death; demise; termination) of Melchizedek Priesthood channels¬†(mediums; instruments; agents),¬†¬†which are¬†used-by¬†(necessary for) Salt Lake’s General Authorities to¬†point¬†(direct everyone’s attention) to the¬†reservoir¬†(fountain) of salt-water; poisonous-water)¬† that irrigates the gardens¬†of Mormonism’s secure (fixed; predetermined) “Ruling-Class-Elites”¬†(upper-class; priesthood-authorities; leaders) while they lead¬†(show; guide; lead)¬†Israel’s people to¬†The-Fuller’sImage result for fulling in vats of urineField¬†(trampler’s domain; treader’s¬†realm of activity)¬†

*Fullers Field –¬† is a metaphorical reference to “Ethnic-Cleansing” of Israel’s people or anyone else, for that matter,¬† who doesn’t appear to conform to Salt Lake’s uniform (robot-like) pattern of behavior and especially as it relates to worship of God.¬† In Roman times, “fulling” was conducted by slaves working the woolen fleeces while ankle deep in tubs of human urine. Urine was so important to the “fulling” business that it was taxed. Stale urine, known as “wash”, was a source of ammonium¬†salts and assisted in cleansing and whitening the cloth. The object was to completely remove all natural¬†(pure; unbleached; unpolished; native; inherent) properties¬†(traces; legal-rights; attributes, qualities, traditions; customs; habits or characteristics)¬† of Israelite heritage from the wool¬†(fleeces; sheep) in preparation for becoming a “true-blue” (“dyed in the wool”; extremely loyal or orthodox; staunch; devoted; stalwart; dedicated) Mormon in the exact-likeness of Salt Lake’s image.

4. And¬†say unto this generation of Israel’s people, “Beware (be cautious and alert to the dangers) of¬†Salt Lake headquarters¬†but,¬† at the same time, be discreet¬†¬†(be careful and circumspect in your speech or actions) about what you know¬†(are privy to; understand by means of the spirit of God) …….oh!.……….and¬†don’t any of you beImage result for stupefied man gif intimidated¬†(overawed)¬† or become faint-hearted because of Salt Lake’s constant¬†wagging (changing) modifying) of its¬†tale¬†¬†(narrative; story; account; myth; yarn; saga) about¬†Mormonism’s¬† ¬†beginnings (origins)¬†they’ve circulated (published)¬† to¬†overthrow Jehovah’s (Israel’s)¬†authority.¬†¬†Behold (watch; witness) as Salt Lake turns (converts; gathers) Israel’s people. Behold (watch; observe) as Salt Lake “smokes”¬†(stupefies; intoxicates; inebriates) Israel’s people.¬† Behold (watch; witness) as Salt Lake¬†imprecates¬†(invokes a curse-upon) Israel’s people¬†thru (by means of) a¬†network (matrix; web)¬†of angry Salt Lake “Runners” (warriors; messengers) working “hand-in-glove”¬†(in collusion) with Salt Lake headquarters and the sons¬†(heirs; successors) of¬†Remaliah¬†(“decorated-heads of Salt Lake’s Kingdom of God”; Salt Lake General Authorities).¬†¬†

5.¬†As a result of this, indeed (if truth be told) the “Crowned¬†Heads of Salt Lake’s Kingdom” (SaltImage result for it's good to be the king gif Lake General Authorities)¬†are conspiring against¬†you¬†(Israel’s-people; rank and file Mormons)¬†with the unwitting (unknowing; oblivious) cooperation of easily-duped (hoodwinked; foolish) Israelites, who follishly hope (dream) to become crowned-heads¬†¬†(royalty) themselves, someday.

6. They conspire among¬†(whisper among) themselves, “Let’s lift-up (promote; advance; exalt) ourselves instead ofImage result for reign like a king clipart Judah (“praise-and-thanksgiving”) and let’s destroy Israel’s Old Testament-concept of revelation and initiate¬†(inaugurate; establish) a breach (breaking or failure¬†to observe a law;¬†¬†breach¬†of duty; failure to keep a covenant)¬†among Israel’s people.¬† Then we, “alone”, can reign-as-kings (be-treated-like-royalty),¬† smack-dab in the middle of Israelite society……..all the while,¬†having-in-mind (believing; imagining;¬† presuming; supposing) ourselves to be Tabeal (“Pleasing-to-God”).

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†“They will not¬†endure, so ultimately¬†their plan will fail!”

and here’s why…………..

.

.

8.The Head (motivation; driving-force; inspiration; control; determination; ambition)¬†of Aram (the Citadel; Melchizedek priesthood headquarters in¬†Salt Lake City, Utah)¬†is¬†Damascus¬† (“a bloodthirst¬† for Israel’s birthright; ruthlessness; Salt Lake’s covetousness)Image result for all for one and one for all gif. In addition to that,¬†the head ¬†(leadership)¬†of Damascus¬†¬†is¬†constituted by¬†Retzin (Salt Lake’s stereotype happy, successful,¬† and prosperous priesthood-leaders)¬† ¬†who¬†bear-false-witness¬†(lie; misrepresent; “Bull-shit”; commit-perjury)¬†all of the time about Salt Lake’s¬†¬†“whiteness” (outward appearance of purity, holiness and virtue).¬†

Salt Lake’s messengers (prophets and apostles) are strategically¬†(cunningly; cleverly) ¬†“setting-the-stage”¬†( making-preparations)¬†to coerce¬†(force; strong-arm)¬† Israel’s people into “Turning-A-Blind-Eye”¬†(denying; disregarding; dismissing; paying-no-mind to; shutting their eyes to; forgetting; brushing-aside)¬†“Israelite-Unity” (Israel’s “All-for-One and One-for-All” traditions; “folklore”; customs; ways and character).


.

.

9.¬†Now (listen to this!; drawing attention to a particular point in a narrative.¬† The head¬†(leadership) of Ephraim (Salt Lake’s cover; Salt Lake’s camouflage)¬†is comprised of¬†Samaria (“Shomrain”¬† – guardians of this generation of Israel’s people; caretakers¬†of thisImage result for the penguins "this sucks" generation)………. BUT…………….as things stand, today,¬† the head¬†(leadership)¬†¬†of Samaria¬†(the guardians of this generation) ………..¬†are¬†subject to (dependent upon; ruled by ) Salt lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Organization (‘Hell”; the “Pit”; the-Melchizedek-priesthood-network), and¬† most of them¬†(Israel’s people; rank¬† and file Mormons) hope to one day be¬†adorned-with-jewels¬†(“crowned-by Salt Lake as-kings”) as a reward for their service to the church,¬† ………SO (therefore) ………..unless you¬†conscientiously (motivated by one’s moral sense of right and wrong)¬†withstand (resist) Salt Lake’s programs¬†(initiatives;¬†influence; overtures; proselytizing; activities), you’ll¬† have “Little-or-No” chance of surviving¬†(enduring).

.

.

10.¬†Then, Jehovah added one more thing ……………¬† a¬†command¬†(instruction)¬†to Ahaz (Salt Lake’sImage result for Oh one more thing gif" presiding officers; Israel’s-captors; “Israel’s-owners”).

11. ¬†You¬†(Ahaz; Salt lake’s adherents; those who are joined with Salt Lake headquarters; those who solidly support and sustain Salt Lake headquarters; Israel’s possessors; Israel’s-captors; Israel’s-jailors; Israel’s-subjugators)¬†should¬†¬†(ought to)¬†demand (welcome; gladly-accept; roll out the red carpet for)¬†somekind of sign¬†(event whose occurrence indicates the presence of God)¬†even though it’s¬†deep (mysterious; difficult to understand ), as a means to convince¬†(convert)¬†Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) or would you¬†prefer to¬† …..behold (witness; watch, see or observe something remarkable and impressive)¬†while¬†serpents (sly and treacherous¬†high-priests, especially ones who exploit a position of trust in order to betray) emerge from Salt Lake’s¬†underground (secret; subversive)¬†hiding-place¬†(bastion; headquarters; citadel)¬†and ascend to lofty positions of Salt Lake’s priesthood hierarchy of power and authority, thru stealth¬†(slyness).¬†Image result for serpents emerging from their underground

12.¬†But,¬†¬†Ahaz (Salt Lake’s presiding authorities; Israel’s Latter-day-jailors and captors)¬† replied,

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†“NoImage result for No can do can do!” ¬†(“….We can’t go for that”),¬†

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† “We’re not willing to do that!

and besides…..

We are not supposed to¬†test (prove; try; tempt)¬†God”.

13.¬†So, Jehovah said,¬†“Listen-up¬†¬†(Okay everyone –¬†listen up!; Pay close attention)¬†now¬†(at this time; presently)¬†, ye¬†House¬†(lineage; bloodline; dynasty; line of hereditary rulers)¬†of¬†Image result for the watering hole clipartDavid¬†(David means “loved-ones; darlings” in Hebrew).¬†Behold the multitude of Israel’s people who’ve been¬†grabbed¬†(crushed and suffocated)¬†as prey,¬†by Salt Lake headquarters, all because Israel’s people are¬†depending-upon¬†(waiting-for; hoping-for; trusting-in; expecting; anticipating)¬†you¬†(David’s-house; David’s-dynasty; David’s line of hereditary rulers)¬†to¬†lead¬†(guide; protect; direct)¬† them.

Behold the foolishness of¬†sick¬†(desperate; obsessed; covetous; malignantly-disposed)¬†Melchizedek high-priests.¬†Indeed¬†(if truth be told)¬†Salt Lake’s General Authorities claim that they have what¬†you¬†(Israel’s people)¬†lack. But they do not have a legitimate claim to anything. They merely offer a¬†substitute¬†(alternative; counterfeit)¬†for your authority. Further, they are seducing¬†(cajoling) Israel’s-people¬†to drink (quench their thirst at their watering-hole¬†¬†(gathering-places)¬†having-in-mind¬†(thinking; planning; hoping)¬†to replicate¬†(counterfeit)¬†my¬† Old Testament¬†Covenant¬†(treaty)¬†including curses for its violation. It is still binding and “in force” today just as it was when it was introduced to Israel’s people in the Old Testament.

14.¬†Therefore¬†(the usual introduction for a prophetic threat)¬†I, myself,¬† am giving to¬†the world¬†¬†(Israel’s people;¬† SaltRelated image¬†Lake leadership;¬† the rest¬†of mankind)¬†a-sign¬†*¬†(a-proof; a portent; an omen; a token; an argument)

.*sign –a sign is an object, an occurrence or an event through which people are to recognize , learn, remember, or perceive the¬†credibility¬†(trustworthiness; reliability; integrity)¬†of something.¬†Even after more than 2000 years have passed, the “Cross at Calvary” is a potent and recognized sign among believers in the New Testament. The crucial aspect of a sign is not in the sign itself,¬† nor in its execution, but rather the¬†crux¬†(heart, essence; bottom line)¬†of a sign is in its function and meaning. The function of a sign is to mediate some kind of¬†understanding¬†(comprehension)¬†or to¬†motivate¬†(prompt; inspire)¬†some kind of behavior, i.e. motivate people and to arouse them to action. The¬†sign¬†(part of which you are now reading) is¬† given to Ahaz and the unbelieving world is a prophetic threat. It is not intended to arouse faith among Ahaz and his supporters, for they are by now spiritually unreachable but rather, it is given to reveal the depth and scope of¬†“unbelief “¬†(absence of faith ; disbelief)¬†in¬†Ahaz¬†(Salt Lake’s Melchizedek priesthood leadership and its proponents).

 

Lo and behold (a new turn of events, that although surprising, it could inImage result for prime-of--life fact have been predicted) a woman (female) whose spirit was withheld until this day (time; generation) and age of the world, who remains hidden and obscure.

She is at the¬†“prime of her life”¬†to perform a great labor.¬† She has¬†¬†conceived¬†(caused the beginning) of Israel’s return to power. It is her responsiblity (privilege) to¬†¬†bear¬†(bring-forth; deliver) the remaining¬†legitimate¬†(entitled based on strict hereditary right;¬† authorized; legal; lawful)¬†sons¬†(heirs; successors; scions)¬†belonging to¬†David’s¬†House¬†(dynasty; line of hereditary rulers).¬† She will

(2) convene a holy-Israelite-assembly

.*sign –a sign is an object, an occurrence or an event through which people are to recognize, learn, remember, or perceive the credibility (trustworthiness; reliability; integrity) of something.¬†Even after more than 2000 years have passed, the “Cross at Calvary” is a potent and recognized sign among believers in the New Testament. The crucial aspect of a sign is not in the sign itself,¬† nor in its execution, but rather the crux (heart, essence; bottom line) of a sign is in its function and meaning. The function of a sign is to mediate some kind of understanding¬†(comprehension) or to motivate¬†(prompt; inspire) some kind of behavior, i.e. motivate people and to arouse them to action. The sign (part of which you are now reading) is given to Ahaz and the unbelieving world is a prophetic threat. It is not intended to arouse faith among Ahaz and his supporters, for they are by now spiritually unreachable but rather, it is given to reveal the depth and scope of “unbelief “¬†(absence of faith; disbelief)¬†in¬†Ahaz (Salt Lake’s Melchizedek priesthood leadership and its proponents).

* “Killer Bees”(Salt Lake’s colonizing High-priests) Killer Bee venom is a cocktail of biologically active components that are designed to inflict pain. The honey bee stings only defensively — they don’t try to kill, they try to educate,” Berenbaum said. The pain is meant to warn predators — in this case, the humans that disturbed the hive. The venom also sends a signal to fellow bees, marking the predator. This accounts for the repeated stings. Killer Bee attacks are so much more aggressive because when a killer bee hive is disturbed, the entire colony attacks. By comparison, when a European honey bee hive is disturbed, only about 10 percent of the bees will attack. “If you can’t escape that’s when the fatalities occur,”

.* Hair –¬†The hair of the ancient Hebrews was generally black (comp. Cant. 4:1, 5:11). In (Eccl. 11:10) black hair is designated as a sign of youth in contrast with the white hair of age. Josephus narrates that Herod dyed his gray hair black in order to appear younger. Black hair was in any case considered beautiful, black being the general color, while light or blond hair was exceptional. David’s hair is designated as “admoni” = (“reddish” ruddy;¬†¬†I Sam.16:12, 17:42), this expression being also applied to Esau’s complexion or hair (Gen. 25: 25). The Hebrews had thick hair (Ezek. 8: 3). Long, heavy hair was considered to be a sign of vitality. In the case of Samson, traced back to religious reasons (he having been dedicated to God), the connection between long hair and bodily strength was based on the above views. Absalom’s famous hair (II Sam. 15:25) was considered not only as an ornament but as a token of strength. A bald head, therefore, was an object of mockery.

* On the wildflower-studded slopes of the Ozarks, where memories run long and family ties run thick, a little-known and long-ago chapter of history still simmers.
On Sept. 11, 1857, a wagon train from this part of Arkansas met with a gruesome fate in Utah, where most of the travelers were slaughtered by a Mormon militia in an episode known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Hundreds of the victims‚Äô descendants still populate these hills and commemorate the killings, which they have come to call ‚Äúthe first 9/11.‚ÄĚ
Many of the locals grew up hearing denunciations of Mormonism from the pulpit on Sundays, and tales of the massacre from older relatives who considered Mormons ‚Äúevil.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThere have been Fancher family reunions for 150 years, and the massacre comes up at every one of them,‚ÄĚ said Scott Fancher, 58, who traces his lineage back to 26 members of the wagon train, which was known as the Fancher-Baker party. ‚ÄúThe more whiskey we drunk, the more resentful we got.‚ÄĚImage result for Mountain Meadows Massacre."
There aren‚Äôt many places in America more likely to be suspicious of Mormonism ‚ÄĒ and potentially more problematic for Mitt Romney, who is seeking to become the country‚Äôs first Mormon president. Not only do many here retain a personal antipathy toward the religion and its followers, but they also tend to be Christian evangelicals, many of whom view Mormonism as a cult.

Of course…let’s team up with Starbucks and we’ll make an even greater furtune!¬†– On Thursday news was leaked from the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that the church has entered into a franchising agreement with the global powerhouse Starbucks, agreeing to incorporate Starbucks coffeehouses in ten¬†LDS temples¬†around the world.
Although no official announcement about the venture is expected at this weekend’s LDS General Conference, sources say construction is scheduled to begin immediately for Starbucks locations at the LDS temples in New York, Rome, Hong Kong, London, Mexico City, São Paulo, Accra, Sydney, Salt Lake City, and Frankfurt.
While terms of the deal were not disclosed, one prominent business leader reported off the record that if the arrangement proves lucrative for both parties, every single Mormon temple will have a Starbucks by the church’s 200th anniversary in 2030.
‚ÄúThis is such a fantastic opportunity for the Church,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúReally, I‚Äôm just giddy. Or maybe that‚Äôs the caffeine talking.‚ÄĚ
One potential sticking point is that no changes have yet been announced to¬†the Word of Wisdom, the LDS dietary code that has been interpreted as prohibiting alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs‚ÄĒand coffee.
Although early Mormons drank coffee and included it in their list of must-have items for crossing the plains, for the last hundred years of the religion’s history, caffeinated coffee has been strictly forbidden.
Is it possible that Mormonism’s most sacred spaces will be permeated with the glorious scent of a drink that the faithful are not permitted to enjoy?Coffee
Or does the franchise agreement signal an eventual softening of the church’s no-coffee stance?
‚ÄúI think this suggests major changes are coming,‚ÄĚ said Brigham X.Allred, professor of Mormon history and culture at Zarahemla University. ‚ÄúThere is a precedent for this. For years, the Church owned significant stock in soft drink companies. And then what did we see just a few years ago? A statement from the LDS Newsroom that caffeinated soft drinks are now kosher.
After all, The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-Day_Saints was inxcorporated by Salt Lake Headquarters in 1923 so that it could legally operate as a corporate entity………..and that is exactly what Salt Lake is doing…..cashing on on a brilliant financial calculation………to hell with divine revelation given to Joseph Smith…..let’s get this new¬† flag hoisted and make some big money!¬† ¬† Come on…..its business!

christ of

‚ÄúI would expect that the Starbucks deal means that some kinds of coffee will eventually join that list of what is acceptable under the Word of Wisdom,‚ÄĚ he continued. ‚ÄúHow could they not? I mean, you‚Äôll be able to smell the coffee brewing from where you sit in the Celestial Room. It‚Äôs a foretaste of what the Celestial Kingdom will be like.‚ÄĚ
Rumor has it that in a nod to Mormon sensibilities, Starbucks marketers also taste-tested the potential menu addition of Postum, a hot beverage some Mormons have used as a coffee substitute, before spitting it unceremoniously to the ground.
‚ÄúIn our previous engagements with coffee all around the world we have never encountered this strange thing called ‚ÄėPostum,‚Äô‚ÄĚ said a mystified representative of the company. ‚ÄúIt will not be joining the menu and diluting the Starbucks brand.‚ÄĚ
Still, other items have been added to appeal specifically to a Mormon audience, including Lion House rolls, Testamints, and an exciting new gift product: General Authority action figures.
‚ÄúTheir neckties will be interchangeable!‚ÄĚ enthused product manager Libby Rall. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a great idea for keeping the kids occupied while their parents are attending the temple.‚ÄĚ
Also, in a decision that reflects the coffeehouse juggernaut’s deference to the religious traditions of its host, all Starbucks temple locations will be closed on Sundays.
‚ÄúThere are some lines that Mormons just won‚Äôt cross,‚ÄĚ said Allred.
