GOP Dominance Troubles Church

I just came across this article from a 1998 Salt Lake Tribune article, titled “GOP Dominance Troubles Church”. It’s an interesting read.

Notable excerpt:

“Everyone who is a good Latter-day Saint is going to have to pick and choose a little bit regardless of the party that they’re in and that may be required a lot more in the future than it has been in the past. But I think there’s room for that and the gospel leaves us lots of latitude.”

I’ve blogged enough recently about partisan politics to make my stance known on its disadvantages and problems. I agree with the article, in that it’s dangerous, and a bit naive, to align yourself completely with a political party. If you have any opinions or political ideals, chances are high that you won’t agree 100% with any party out there.
