I think you have a Pollyanna view of Prophets and their role. In 1959, at 
President McKay's request, [then] Elder Ezra Taft Benson welcomed and shook 
hands with the butcher of the Ukraine, Nikita Kruschev. More recently, at 
the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii, Church leaders met with some of 
the leaders of the murderous Communist Chinese regime. So what? The First 
Presidency meets with a lot of people in an official capacity, not all of 
them righteous upstanding individuals, and a few of them with hearts full 
of murder.
