“Mormons are particularly patriotic when it comes to the law. Indeed, much of the support for Arizona’s vitriol comes from Phoenix’s “east valley,” the Mesa/Gilbert area of the valley, which is heavily populated by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (“the Church”). One of the Articles of Faith of the Church says, ‘We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.’ The Articles of Faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Art. 12.”
“Russell Pearce, the chief proponent of Arizona’s immigration laws is, like me, a Mormon. His views, however, do not reflect the official position of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the official name of the Mormon church. Indeed, Mr. Pearce’s views are inconsistent with the official position of his church.”
