Utah was founded by the Church...and of course the Church has to be the most powerful influence here.
As long as the majority of people in the state are LDS. That number has been decreasing and I suspect the religious influence will decrease to the same degree. With that said, I find the state to be a great place.

I'm not a Mormon and I think that Utah and SLC rock! But then I'm a bit of a wierdo in that I don't have a fetish for grit.

I have gone to SLC three times. Once as part of a summer vacation and twice for skiing. It is very nice and seemed livable. It is not very cosmapolitan though and it is a LONG drive to any place that is.

I think it is getting overpopulated. It is a high desert environment and the effects of too much pollution are becoming pronounced. So I'll be happy to visit there while living elsewhere.

Oh, and yes, I've never seen such a clean city anywhere. I

FYI, I was told this by a Mormon, but said only the most fundamentalist Mormons, like the ones still practicing polygamy, believe this. But still, if it's in your bible, that is enough to make me never want to go to Utah.

Mormons only make up between 20-25% of Salt Lake City now and only 45% of Salt Lake County. So, it doesn't matter so much what Mormons believe, since they're a minority now.

The Book of Mormon doesn't mention Cain or black people being the cursed seed of Cain. The Mormon prophet Brigham Young said that about black people, but it was never Mormon doctrine.

I do realize the bible tells the story of Cain and Abel, but I haven't ever heard any christian I know say some crazy shit about race like that; but hey, maybe it does I don't really care. Also, again I'm no expert, but I do know that Mormons use a different bible. Now, they may use your "regular" King James version, too; but I know for a fact they have a totally different bible that talks about prophets here in North America, and golden tablets or something like that. Like I said, I know a Morman guy who is originally from Utah; and we have had many discussions about a lot of topics regarding that religion. Don't be so defensive anyway, you said you weren't Mormon, and all I did was ask a question.

However, there are random occasions in the Winter where atmospheric temperature inversions make the entire valley around SLC extremely smoggy and nasty looking. Not that they are alone in that problem. Santiago, another mountain city, has that same issue.

I absolutely love Salt Lake City and the State itself, the weather, the cost of living, nature and amenities. But I do agree, living outside Salt Lake City can be very difficult, its just hard to live your own life.

This thread is insane. I came in here hoping to see photos and learn more about SLC. Instead I'm completely floored to see a thread dedicated to pure hatred, ignorance, insidious lies and a complete denigration of millions of Americans; Mormons.

I'm not a Mormon and I certainly don't agree with their beliefs.

I should have known from the title that some twisted sick people were going to spew their hatefulness at a high level of ignorance. It's shameful that moderators have allowed this thread to be a hateful cancer in this forum.

I'll go back to the heading and try to find a real thread about SLC and hopefully can forget about the bigotry here.
