Stockton and Malone Came in at a Close Second

I recently saw, for the first time, the state quarter of Utah:

Ok. Pretty cool. I think we can agree that the Utahn bigshots made a good choice with Promontory Point and the famous rail spike. I dig it. Notice that they made no attempt at controversy with something like a picture of Joseph Smith with "This Is the Place" captioned below.

...or did they?

Let's take a look at the quarter upside-down:

Ok. That looks like a freaky weird Mormon temple. And look at the words on the quarter and read them upside down.

All this is Mormon for:
"And all this have they done that they might pervert the right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes and harden the hearts of the children of men."
- 1 Nephi 13:27
Stop trying to brainwash us, Utah quarter.
