IMHO:
This is something that should have disappeared years ago, but people won't let it go.

Quit bitching about the Mormon Church quarrying stone in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

1. There are hundreds of problems/routes that wouldn't exist not only in LCC, but in a lot of other areas (anywhere that ends in "quarry"), if it weren't for men (glorified apes) who knocked the boulders down in the first place. Nearly all the boulders in LCC came from the Mormons at one point or another.

2. Access is pretty freaking good in LCC. Be grateful for what you are given and climb and have fun. If I had the best bouldering in the world in my yard, I doubt I'd be so willing to let just anyone come play. Seems like access is pretty good.

Well that's because you're an ass. I would let everyone come play. Everyone except the Mormons that is.

Just out of curiousity, what interest does a religious organization have in quarrying operations. I'm not being a smartass, I just don't get it. Thanks.

Peace.

It's not an on-going quarrying operation. The LSD built a new building several years ago and used stone from LCC for the facade to match that of existing, older buildings that also used LCC granite. Quarrying stopped when they finished their conference center. However, now that they're rebuilding a chunk of downtown SLC.....

Hmmm, something tells me kman isn't Mormon. lol.

Marc801, thats interesting, thanks. I figured they we using it for construction purposes. I just didn't realize they would go so far as quarry their own material rather than purchase from existing operations. I guess if the projects are large enough, and occur frequently enough, then it could be economically feasible to invest in such a large operation.

Who is the ass? Why all the anti-mormon sentiment around here. I've met several such threads on this site.
Maybe this was meant as a sarcastic remark, and I'm sorry if I misunderstood, I just don't understand why all the hate? There are many good LDS members on this site.

Exactly. And normally I would never clarify when someone misinterprets one of my posts - part of the fun for me. But I don’t feel like coming off as prejudiced... well, not today anyway.

I have no idea what the OP is babbling about, where all these people are that supposedly “won’t let it go” (besides the OP), and what the hell Mormons have to do with any of this. So Tongue

BS there is no such thing as a good LDS member.

The church as a whole has a somewhat hidden agenda(i say somewhat because they've had leaks). They are seriously trying to take over the world and thus far are succeeding. The Book itself preach's plenty of hate.

Anyone who thinks otherwise should do some reading.

Not from the internet...read the book itself. Or any number of other books out there.

Did you know that the book of mormon says African people are the result of the devil having sex with a goat?

I'm sure you'd love to hear what they think about women...

You should educate yourself before taking pot shots.

Okay. So I initially dismissed this as a really bad troll, and it still reeks of troll, but I can't not set the record straight here. It is blatantly obvious that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Please take your own advise and "educate yourself before taking pot shots," or maybe even "read the book yourself" if you are going to profess knowledge about it.

On a side note, are you honestly ignorant enough to think that millions of people in the world, including hundreds of thousands of Africans, believe that Africans are the result of the devil having sex with a goat??? Seriously??? I think thats worse than the people who think that Mormons have horns.

I apologize for contributing to the thread hijack.

Try reading a "normal" bible...there's plenty of fucked up shit in there that you wouldn't believe...did YOU know that our ancestors were a bunch of incestuous prigs??? Or that a silly apple doomed humanity all because women are weak?

That is absoultely ridiculous. How many Mormons do you actually know and interact with on a regular basis? Let's see some quotes supporting the goat/devil thing.

buckleki - I've been in SLC for two years and the only negative impact Mormon culture has had on me is that I've had a hard time finding restaurants that are open on Sunday night.
