Thank Heavens – yet another LDS General Authority who is not only a
Democrat, but and a former Obama administrator none the less!
Given that "A Scientist" capitalized "Church" as many LDS will,
I am going on the assumption that person is LDS. If so, I would say to "A
Scientist" that it is up to all of us to take on the responsibility of doing
much good in the world in whatever capacity we are in. We need to be the same
quality of individual that we should be whether in a Church capacity or
otherwise. The man who was my mission president is a recently-retired--I am
guessing--dentist in the Salt Lake Valley. He is a man who has been a bishop
more than once, a stake president, mission president (as I said), et cetera and
someone I could very, very easily see being called as a General Authority. That
he has not been called as one frankly inspires me to try to try to emulate the
Savior as he does and indeed do the world as much good as I can regardless of
what position I hold in the Church.
I think many of these men in Church leadership positions would do the world much
more good if they participated in non-Mormon leadership and service.
So pleased to hear about Elder Echo Hawk. An outstanding leader who has
accomplished so much. Just wondering why he has to resign from the BIA? I
suppose it's a personal choice.(President Benson accepted his Cabinet post
while an Apostle.)
