It’s been reported this week that the LDS Church has issued guidelines for political involvement by Church leaders. The Church issues official statements declaring its political neutrality every election season, making exception for issues it considers “moral” rather than political—like California’s Proposition 8. (That’s a distinction many would interrogate, especially supporters of LGBT equality.)
But this week’s statement offers something new in drawing a line on who among Church leaders may and who must not participate in any aspect of political campaigning, including endorsing, promoting, donating, or fundraising.
