“There are some who apparently feel that the fight for freedom is separate from the Gospel. They express it in several ways, but it generally boils down to this: Just live the gospel; there’s no need to get involved in trying to save freedom and the Constitution or stop communism… Should we counsel the people, ‘Just live your religion – there’s no need to get involved in the fight for freedom?’ No, we should not, because our stand for freedom is a most basic part of our religion.”

~LDS Apostle (and future President) Ezra Taft Benson, General Conference talk – October 1966~
