(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Street preachers are already out before the start of tomorrow's 174th semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Two men are protesting outside the gates of Temple Square and dozens more are expected for this weekend's conference.

L-D-S Church officials say they're asking Mormon conference-goers to be courteous and civil to street preachers. And they hope for the same from the street preachers.

A federal judge this week sided with the city's new rules of creating buffer zones between preachers and conference-attendees.

Salt Lake City police say they'll also have dozens of extra officers on patrol to prevent any violence or conflicts.

At least 20-thousand church members are expected to attend the two-day conference.
