Yes I verify what you are seeing. Here is the Church's page of country sites:

http://www.lds.org/ldsorg/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=03103c7ff44f2010VgnVCM1000001f5e340aRCRD&locale=0

On this page, the link to the French Polynesian site is to a different URL than intended.

Aaron Cannon gave me a heads up on this, and we have told the appropriate people to start chasing it down.

Thanks for the heads up.

That's ok, MorettiDP. You didn't really violate any policy of the site. But being that it is a hacking site, I didn't want the Church to have a link to it in anyway. You never know if it may try to put malware on your computer.

But thank you very much for catching this problem!
