It’s a proven fact around the world, where humans live, that investment and revitalizing an area attracts prosperous persons who want to maintain beautiful surroundings.

I  believe that this is a church employee that is working in Temple View. His name is not Dylan Wright. This is a post from a blog thread.

Why is the LDS Church investing in certain projects around the Temple site?

This is a social-economic cultural issue. It’s a proven fact around the world, where humans live, that investment and revitalizing an area attracts prosperous persons who want to maintain beautiful surroundings. Such development preserves the area.

Such principles have been applied and reapplied around the world by cities, governments, and nations. Revitalizing a city’s urban core has proven to reduce crime, poverty, excessive illegal drugs, prostitution, etc.

Is the City of Hamilton offering to pay for it? No. Is the land of Aotearoa willing to pay for it? No. Who is going to pay Ra? The Saints are going to invest in their families’ future. They alone have the interest of protecting the Temple area.

As I stated before, this investment is no different than investing in a fence. But, this new fence is just more costly to effectively do its job. It would be absurd to argue that the Temple “grounds” fence doesn’t qualify as tithing fund appropriate.

The goal of the Church is to protect Hamilton’s Temple area. That’s the first and foremost for long term planning for the next 50 years. The Church would NOT have done this just on a financial basis alone. Do you clearly understand that? This isn’t a speculative venture in the middle of nowhere – it is the area surrounding the TEMPLE of OUR GOD – it is to protect one of his Temples.

A second goal is for the area to become beautified and vibrant for the city itself. They’re doing the right thing at the right time, and we’re all going to benefit from it. It’s to attract generations of people to live near the Temple who will create a more vibrant urban center for continued flourishing for the next 100 years. By resuscitating the fading beat of the city center around the Temple, the Church will strengthen the broader heart of Hamilton.

  1. Don White uses a sock puppet? I wonder why he feels the need to do this? Why does he want to hide his identify? Why does he want to skulk around in the shadows? Is it because somewhere deep inside him, where the faintest vestige of a conscience remains, he knows that what he is saying is false? Is it because he doesn’t want, what he must know to be, the empirically and factually incorrect statements regarding the revitalization of urban areas to be a representation of his “character”? Is it because he knows that the religious aspects of his justifications are sacrilegious, blasphemous, anti-scripture and anti-Christ?

    Come out of shadows and into the light Don, you will be glad you did. Only in the light will you find happiness. It is where truth, charity and faith live without fear. There will be no need for you to hide and no need for you to bow your head in shame.
