LDS Church Political Policy

I discuss the Christmas card allegedly sent by Mitt Romney to Republicans in North Carolina which purports to have been financed by the LDS Temple in Boston.A frequent caller attacked Mitt Romney; claimed Brigham Young did not believe in the Constitution; that he came to Utah to escape the U. S.; and that he declared that he did not believe in the Constitution. I responded to each of these points.I read a current statement of the Church's neutrality on political elections and partisan politics and freedom of LDS, including those holding political office, to vote their conscience.Discussion with a caller on the interpretation of portions of scripture and how the interpretation one may be relevant to the interpretations of others.

Comments on D&C 134. I contrast this section with Old Testament policy.

Joseph Smith's 1844 statement on religion and government.

Email from an LDS democrat regarding the Chuch political position.

A caller read a statement of Joseph Smith and his comments.

Discussion with a caller about views of the Bible and interpretation of the Old Testament;

Mitt Romney and prevailing biases.

A caller asked about the historicity of the Bible in comparison and contrast to the Book of Mormon.
