“A [Mormon] temple [in East Germany] would… be an ensign to the people that the government is not as repressive as the press indicates. I’m sure the government hopes that this will make members of the Church more satisfied to stay in the GDR [German Democratic Republic]. The Church is no threat to the government, and they know it’s no threat.”

~Susan Oman, Sunstone Review – November 1982, page 28, “East German Communists Welcome Mormon Temple.”
