Utah People's Party

…proclain liberty through out all the land….(Leviticus 25:10)

Reminder of Political Neutrality

on October 28, 2012

For citizens who want to limit government and to include God in government, the Utah People’s Party is a better alternative than either the Republican or Democratic parties. The People’s Party seeks to conform to the teachings of our state’s majority religion that relate to politics or public policy. Because many churches teach similar moral standards and encourage similar, faith base approaches to life, the People’s Party is the closest fit for many believers in other religions as well. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will neither endorse nor oppose the People’s Party because doing either would be inconsistent with the Church’s political neutrality policy, which says that the Church does not endorse or oppose Political Parties. (see political neutrality on lds.org)(Introduction Page)

We quote the preceding words from our Introduction Page. As we announce the candidate endorsements of the Utah People’s Party,  we note that just as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will neither endorse nor oppose the Party itself, the Church will neither endorse nor oppose the candidates the Party endorses. The above mentioned political neutrality policy prevents the Church from making candidate endorsements. (see political neutrality on lds.org)
