    Hope it is not too presumptuous or sinful to wish to go along on the world tour with Pres. Nelson and Elder Holland... that being not likely, I will await their return with anticipation for their report.

    As regarding comments about GA's calling out Senator Hatch, I have seen for a long time the need for them to call out all men who behave in un-Christ-like ways in their everyday jobs and workplace. Too often I see eulogized men who set very bad examples of what a Saint should be in the workplace, then serve as leaders in the Church of Jesus Christ, as if its okay to compartmentalize or separate behavior at work with that exhibited on Sunday.

    Correct...politics and the Church can't mix, except for those times that the Brethren need to set the record straight on what the church does and doesn't stand for.

    Selznik,

    It would be opening up an epic can of worms.

    Do you get the notion of a world wide church? So do they condemn state insurance, which is found in many locations or promote it for our location?

    Do they make a political stand on something that has no direct moral bearing?

    Is it their job to call Orrin Hatch out publicly?

    I think church PR is wisely not going to comment - nor should they.

    It would be a great example of inspired leadership if the General Authorities would call into question the disrespectful language Senator Hatch used regarding people who honestly support Obamacare, as quoted elsewhere in this website.
