Elder Cook Opens Black Church Leadership Summit (+Video)


“If there is to be ‘fairness for all,’ no one should face a threat to their very existence,” Elder Cook said at the Black Church Leadership Summit. “All should affirmatively recognize that everyone is entitled to protection for their core freedoms and interests. We cannot abandon the basic moral high ground that gives meaning to this life and has guided civilizations for centuries.”

Quoting an iconic Baptist preacher and a well-known Jewish rabbi, Mormon apostle Elder Quentin L. Cook made the case Wednesday at the Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey that a “fairness for all” approach to religious freedom is critical because it preserves an important path to a meaningful life.
