The standard joke of the phallic nature of sky scrappers applies to the LDS Church headquarters in SLC. In fact, this building is as it were, a rather complete representation of the male reproductive parts.
Mormons are known for their reproductive prowess, is the design of this building an overt brag?
Looks like any one of thousands and thousands of apartment buildings or office buildings here in South Korea. You noted already that there’s a standard joke about skyscrapers being phallic in appearance. That would lead me to conclude that you could take any skyscraper on the planet and attach a phallic significance to the building.
As far as “being known for reproductive prowess,” I’d think you’d have a hard time making that case as the majority of Mormons live outside the United States and it might be difficult to determine which religious demographic corresponds to the most fertile demographic worldwide.
And they’re called skyscrapers. (I add this because this is the third time I’ve seen that misspelling today and it’s the Dope just happened to be the third message board I’ve checked today.)
I’m not seeing it. I’m seeing a building, not very different from many other buildings, looking like it was properly engineered, and standing according to whatever plans it was built by. Am I missing something?
I think it’s Christian Americans in general, rather than Mormons, specifically. After all, there’s this one-time “World’s Largest Phallic Symbol”, dedicated to the “Father of Our Country”, as found on a Christian website.
