Interesting!I would remind you that he made these comments while speaking as the Secretary of Agriculture and not as a Prophet of God under the influence of the Holy Ghost.But that said, interesting!
Yes, that is true.And, yes, it's true that he was a good and well-educated man who often spoke under the influence of the Spirit whether as a Prophet or not. :)And, we have that same opportunity.Thanks for writing.
You all need to read the talk he gave as the Prophet to the church in September 16 1986. It is titled The Constitution-A Heavenly Banner. Here he talks about this "Socialism" topic and does so in an address to the whole church (as he states) as the president of the church.
Thank you for your comments.
