So I was just talking with a friend a couple days ago about the podcast. He said “Dave I love the podcast but you have had a few episodes that seem out of place on a podcast about Mormonism.” I asked which ones and he told me the ones I have done about liberty and freedom. In response to that I want to read the following quote from Brigham Young
“Every organization of our government, the best government in the world, is crumbling to pieces. Those who have it in their hands are the ones who are destroying it. How long will it be before the words of the prophet Joseph will be fulfilled? He said if the Constitution of the United States were saved at all it must be done by this people. It will not be many years before these words come to pass.” (Brigham Young Journal of Discourses 12:204 )
Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, & many other early Church leaders understood that the Gospel could only thrive in an environment of liberty. So that’s why I have episodes on this podcast about liberty and freedom. The two are intertwined and cannot be separated. Furthermore Brigham states in that quote “He said if the Constitution of the United States were saved at all it must be done by this people.” We have a divine mandate as Mormons to preserve the Constitution of the United States.
On this episode I sit down and have a conversation with Enoch Moore. Enoch is the founder of Defending Utah. We have a fascinating conversation where we not only talk about the issues facing Utah and the nation but more importantly the solutions for ensuring our continued liberty and in turn the ability to continue to practice our religion.
