While visiting the Green Bay Temple, I was impressed with the two statues of local saints. These are Saint Curly (Lambeau) and Saint Vincent (Lombardi). If you stand in the right place, they have tasteful halos. This wasn't a Mormon temple, if you didn't notice. It is the temple for a much more popular and still relatively true religion in Wisconsin.
The Green Bay Temple is a very cool place, even if some of the worshipers run around in funny clothes and odd hats. There's a lot to like about the religion, but that part about humans becoming glorified is hard to swallow, especially when some of the glorified apostatize and join other teams. Then there's that whole reincarnation thing with Saint Farve.... Hey, but every religion has things that seem odd to outsiders. Even mine, I guess.
Here are a couple more views.
