  1. Refers to the Mormon Church. Since Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, most locals (and Mormons) simply refer to the religion as "The Church". For non-Mormons who are visiting or relocating to Utah, this can be confusing. Example:

    Andy: "My sister is a member of The Church".
    Visitor: "Oh? Which church?"
    Andy: "THE church. The Mormon Church silly!" Posted by: simpleutahboi on Aug 13, 2012 (0) (0)
