A Company Accidentally Put the Salt Lake Temple and a Scripture on "Beauty and the Beast" Phone Cases, and the Internet Bought Them All

by | Aug. 15, 2018


In addition to the lyric “Tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast” written in script, a phone case depicting iconic Disney characters in front of the Church's most iconic temple contains lines from a D&C 123:17.

Katie Hoyos didn’t know what was missing from her Beauty and the Beast collection until she saw it: a phone case featuring Belle and the Beast striding toward the Latter-day Saint temple in Salt Lake City.

She thought it was amusing that the Australian manufacturer probably had no idea that the majestic six-spired granite building isn’t a fairy-tale castle but rather a place where Latter-day Saints complete religious rites, including baptisms for the dead and eternal marriages.

It was the perfect mix for Hoyos, a Beauty and the Beast megafan since age 5, and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“What could be sweeter than a tale as old as time and all eternity?” she asks.
