    Announced during the October 2022 general conference, President Russell M. Nelson said the group will add 18 new facilities in the coming months and years, including a second in Las Vegas.

    According to the announcement, the new Las Vegas temple will be constructed in the northwest valley, near Lone Mountain.

    The release notes that the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple will be the state’s fourth temple. Locations already include a Las Vegas temple, 827 Temple View Drive, the Reno Nevada Temple and the Elko Nevada Temple.

    According to the group, there are about 180,000 Latter-day Saints in more than 360 congregations in Nevada, making up nearly 6% of the state’s population.

    I really don't know jack squat about their beliefs of their religion.

    I believe in God, but religion seems like a steaming pile of BS.

    If it wasn't for the heathen, Sin City and its jobs wouldn't exist. How do Mormons feel about working for casinos and their vendors?

    Their employees were caught on a hidden camera taking piles of food out of there. Sold a lot of it. Donations slowed way down after that.
