LDS Inc. unwilling to tell members to obey the law?
You’ve probably all seen the news coverage recently noting that there is an increasing debate in Utah about illegal immigration. Mormons seem to be leading the charge in Arizona and Utah (not necessarily as Mormons, but these politicians happen to be Mormons) to restrict the rights of illegal immigrants. But the Mormon Church won’t reign them in and won’t take an official position on illegal immigration. Those cracking down on illegal immigration cite Mormon scripture and an Article of Faith about following the law. LDS Inc. just says be “compassionate” toward illegals. My question: Is LDS Inc. wavering because illegals make up their primary pool for potential converts? Or is there some other reason for the wavering?
