Workers at Religious Construction Site Banned from Smoking, Swearing, and Caffeine

From our file marked, “When in Rome…” comes this story about the construction of a Mormon temple in Philadelphia. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is forbidding caffeinated beverages, smoking, and foul language on the jobsite.  LDS’ Continued Elder Robert Smith says the property is considered sacred ground. “We had a ground-breaking and a special prayer that made that happen, and we believe that we need to treat it with the same respect we would with one of our churches.” Workers who need a cup of joe or a smoke are able to indulge across the street.
