zI confess I'm worried on these accounts.

Because you write well, Steven, I assume you're a reasonably bright guy.
But, when I read you web site practically the only prophet you cite is Ezra
Taft Benson. I don't agree with President Benson's politics, but I do
believe he was a good man and was entitled to to make his own political
choices, as we all are. But, Steven, when you were building the site, did
you not wonder why virtually no other apostle or prophet (of his era) sang
the "Communist Threat" to Momronism song as often and as stridently as
President Benson did (sure, President McKay added a few odd things, but not
much). And, further that no current prophet or apostle has picked-up the
President Benson's "there's a commie on every streetcorner" rag?

No other Apostle or Prophet needs to. President Benson did such a great job laying that foundation <grin>. Besides, imo, the Book of Mormon does a lot better job of warning us about the perils of secret combinations and conspiracies designed to overthrow governments than even President Benson did <grin>.

So why is that bright guy like you doesn't see the need to flesh-out his
political/religious views using comments, observations and instructions from
the other prophets of the Church?  Should I worry that you and people like
you are hiding out in the weeds, ready at a moment's notice to divide the
church along political lines, or establish The Church of Ezra Taft Benson
and tell the rest of us to go straight to hell?  Just curious.

Mostly I use the scriptures and the Founding Fathers to "flesh out" my political views.

"But where some say is the king of America? IŽll tell you Friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the royal brute of Great Britain. Yet that we may not appear to be defective even in earthly honors, let a day be solemnly set apart for proclaiming the charter; let it be brought forth placed on the divine law, the Word of God; let a crown be placed thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America the law is king. For as in absolute governments the king is law, so in free countries the law ought to be King; and there ought to be no other." (Thomas Paine, _Common Sense_)
