LDS Liberty is dedicated to advancing the cause of liberty in light of the restored gospel.
President John Taylor stated:
“Besides the preaching of the Gospel, we have another mission, namely, the perpetuation of the free agency of man and the maintenance of liberty, freedom, and the rights of man.” (JD, vol. 28, p. 63)
As Latter-day Saints, we are still under this divine command today.
We believe that God has given to every individual the unalienable right to Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness (Property) as part of the Plan of Salvation. Any violation of these rights, whether by a single individual or a group of people (i.e. government), is immoral and against the will of God. The only just and proper role of government is to protect these rights from the aggression of others.
The Founding Fathers were inspired men whose efforts secured a society with the greatest enjoyment of liberty in modern times. The political environment of freedom they created allowed for the church of Jesus Christ to be restored and thrive in the last days.
Unfortunately, the principles upon which America was founded are under constant attack by “kingmen” (Alma 51:5). Many Latter-day Saints, either knowingly or unknowingly, support those who would destroy the Lord’s work in the latter days. We seek to educate on the principles of liberty in hopes that many more will “awake to a sense of [our] awful situation” (Ether 8: 24–25).
