But this is now being threatened.
The Town Council of Manti is considering a proposal which would shut down the main street going to the pageant location thus inhibiting our brothers and sisters from doing the work of the gospel where it has been unobstructed before. They would turn the street into a park but with special "rules". Basically this would inhibit those coming to Manti from a public venue that they can, as I said, lovingly confront the false gospel that the Mormons hold to. It seems as if there is not a lot of debate on this but we need to get the message out. There is a proposal from John Kauer of thinkabouteternity.org that would allow the City and LDS to buy the property but maintain the civil liberties that any public park would have.
