Two men arrested for handing out anti-Mormon literature.
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' and Salt Lake City's restrictions on behavior they deem "offensive" on the plaza are now the subject of an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit before the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver." ...

For the Mormons here at MeFi -- and, of course, anyone else -- the Church
is broadcasting a Memorial Service

(requires Windows Media Player). I'm sure other national religious organizations are doing the same... so if you know of others, post them here.
