London England Temple (or any other temple) doesn’t have an Angel because . . .
First off, I would like to point out that the tradition of placing statues on every temple started around 1980, and the London Temple (as with most temples that suffer this myth) was built and dedicated before the Church considered the practice of a Moroni standard. So right off, any of the myths in this section are myths for just that reason: They did not get a statue because that’s just not what was done back then.
But let’s consider a few of these myths anyway.
- . . . there is a risk that a plane might hit the statue on approach.
- . . . the statue would interfere with the computerized landing systems.
- . . . the reflection would have distracted pilots flying into Gatewick (or another) Airport.
