Mormon Life

In an exclusive article written for the Deseret News, Hillary Clinton shared her beliefs in religious freedom and how that relates to LDS Church history.

In the article, she states, "As Sister Rosemary M. Wixom once said, 'As individuals we are strong. Together, with God, we are unstoppable.'

"Sister Wixom is right, and she’s not alone. Generations of LDS leaders, from Joseph Smith and Brigham Young to Gordon Hinckley and Thomas Monson, have noted the infinite blessings we have received from the Constitution of the United States."

I’m running for president to make sure our country continues to live up to our founding principles. Those timeless ideas teach us that we’re stronger together when we work in unison to solve our problems, no matter what we look like, where we come from or how we pray.

That last one is important. As Americans, we hold fast to the belief that everyone has the right to worship however he or she sees fit.
