Mormon leaders' landmark speeches on religious freedom
Brigham Young University
Sept. 11, 2011
Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve addressed many college students and other young single adults in the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University. During his speech, Elder Oaks addressed four key principles that should govern religious participation in the public square:
"Believers should not shrink from seeking laws to maintain public conditions or policies that assist them in practicing the requirements of their faith where those conditions or policies are also favorable to the public health, safety or morals," Elder Oaks said.
"But where believers are in the majority they should always be sensitive to the views of the minority."
