SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Mormon church is warning a group of women pushing for gender equality that will not be allowed to protest in Temple Square next month during a biannual conference.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints told the members of Ordain Women in a letter sent Monday that if they insist on going forward with their plans, they'll need to protest in a zone set aside for protestors on the street.

The church said activist events detract from the sacred environment of the weekend conference in Salt Lake City.
