High Court Considers Fight Over Display of ‘Seven Aphorisms’
The way Summum tells it, when Moses first came down from Mount Sinai, he didn’t have the Ten Commandments in his hand: He was holding the Seven Aphorisms.
The Aphorisms are the guiding principles of Summum, a religious organization that operates from a pyramid in Salt Lake City and practices mummification. They are so important to Summum that the group’s founder, Summum “Corky” Ra, asked that they be displayed in a public park in Pleasant Grove, Utah, near a Ten Commandments monument.
Apparently the Mormons respect religious freedom only if it benefits them.
