DC09014: Keeping the Covenant: The Role of Mormon Expression in Modern American Political Discourse

This presentation will focus on the proper role of Latter-day Saints in modern American political discourse. It will focus not on the meta-actions of the institutional Church, per se, but rather on the duties, actions, and responsibilities of individual Mormons in pursuit of the common good. The presentation will draw heavily on social contract theorists in addition to Mormon scriptural traditions to develop and propose a model for appropriate and meaningful Mormon political expression.
