Two Quotes

Friday, January 9, 2009

“It is our duty to concentrate all our influence to make popular that which is sound and good, and unpopular that which is unsound. ‘Tis right, politically, for a man who has influence to use it. …”

“Even this nation will be on the very verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground, and when the Constitution is upon the brink of ruin, this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean, and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction.”


Both of these quotes were taken from President Ezra Taft Benson’s “Our Divine Constitution,” (Nov. 1987). The first quote was published in History of the Church, 5:286. The second was spoken by Joseph Smith on 19 July 1840, and was recorded by Martha Jane Knowlton Coray; The manuscript is in the Church Historian’s Office in Salt Lake City, UT.

Save the Constitution

Declaration of Liberty

In memory of our God, our Nation, our Religions, our Freedom, our Peace, our Families and our Fallen Dead;

WE THE PEOPLE declare that We will Never Yield to those who would place us in bondage. We will live for the Constitution and we will die for the Constitution, for we know that it was inspired of God for all of his Children.
