Our take: Apart from a mistaken implication that Mitt Romney is currently serving as an LDS bishop, Paul Gunther offers an interesting insight into typical design features of Mormon temples, particularly the preference for temples to be built on high ground and as apart from nearby structures as possible.
Huffington Post blogger Paul Gunther recently presented LDS architecture as one way to understand the "unique cultural contribution" that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made to the United States, a topic which deserves closer inspection since Romney began his bid for the White House.
"Examining the architecture of Mormonism is useful to do not as the full measure of projected GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, per se, but instead as a glimpse into the credo that has done much to shape his character and attendant guiding principles," Gunther wrote in part.
