Are Mormons comfortable with stem cell research, cloning, and the like? I wonder if this church is some kind of forward listening post/symbolic "island of righteousness" in the Kendall Square biotech zone. I mean, every Mormon in Massachusetts could probably fit into the massive Belmont temple.

Apparently the Mormon church is growing here. I know a few Mormons and they were talking about how there used to be one district or chapter or whatever they call it on the south shore when they started and now there's 3 or 4. Personally, I think they're a strange breed and I have to agree that this placement is very...odd.

It's so funny to see the West End. Boston seems to have 2 skylines, the "Boston" skyline of the Back Bay and Financial District, and the "Everywhere else" skyline of the West End.

Wall of shame? Indeed! I can't believe they mean to leave it like that.

A few more taller towers(No.sta,Gov. garage?)and it would be it's own skyline.

The Mormon church on Binney Street. Now a hole in the ground with green tarps.
