Why are there no crosses on LDS Churches?
Mormonism downplays the Cross. Christ's work on the Cross does not buy salvation for sinners, it merely buys them resurrection. Salvation--exaltation--in Mormonism is a human work through obedience to law.
Mormons often say, "If Jesus had been killed with a hand gun would you wear a pistol around your neck?" So Mormonism completely misses the value of the cross. As the Bible says, "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." (I Cor. 1:18)
