The pictures were added to an essay about temple clothing that has been on the church’s website for more than three years. “Because there is little or no accurate information on this subject on the Internet the church feels it important to provide this resource,” LDS Churc...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
