I don’t believe less in American government because of a bad politician. I don’t believe less in the Catholic Church because of a criminal priest but I wish we were doing more – and had done more in the past especially – to do something about these things. It doesn’t harm my faith but it gets me just mad that these things have existed.
President Hinckley is not only a living prophet but also a living seer. He sees things that others do not see. He has the gift of discernment; he is an optimist and a realist. . . . Through President Hinckley’s divine guidance, the Church has received many far-reaching blessings, many that are not obvious. I strongly encourage each of you to more closely follow his counsel and guidance, for truly ‘a seer hath the Lord raised up unto his people’ (Moses 6:36).

The Calvinist stands alone before an almost merciless God; no human agency can help him; his church is a means to political and social organization rather than a bridge to deity, for no priest can have greater knowledge of the divine way than he himself; no friend can console him – in fact, he should distrust all men; in the same fashion, Economic Man faces a merciless world alone and unaided, his hand against every other’s.

Open them up and then make the government give us our tax dollars that we pay for an education that we don’t receive.
There are a lot days where I don’t know if God exists. There are a lot of days where I think the leadership of the Church is wacky, a lot of days where I really doubt why I am a part of this thing. But, down deep, I know it to be true. Down deep, I know how much I love it and that’s what sort of gets me through. The churches are the pope, and its priests and its mystery and everything. I just sort of like the whole thing.
