I mentioned the sect known as La Luz del Mundo a few posts ago. Here is a link to the group's home page.
I also mentioned that at the top of what seems to be the equivalent of the steeple in our area (Xalapa, Coatepec and Xico all have temples) there appears to be a kind of abstracted symbol of a flame. Below is the top of the temple in Xalapa:

I had assumed that there would be uniformity among the various temples, but there really isn't. You can look through the website and find a huge variety of styles.
I still remain baffled at its attraction for people with its rigidity about women, its insistence they not wear pants, that they wear headcovers, that they be denied access to high church offices and the fairly public charges against more than one church leader of sexual abuse, not to say rape. Why not just stay Catholic? Seems easier.
Anyway, I will move onto Guanajuato quite soon. I found myself with an octupus on my hands, given the amount of information, opinion, creativity, etc. etc. surrounding and included in both the city itself and in Fuentes's novel, Las Buenas Conciencias.
