Elder Robert D. Hales
[W]e can become informed. Be aware of issues in your community that could have an impact on religious liberty. “Preserving Agency, Protecting Religious Freedom,” General Conference, April 2015.
Elder Quentin L. Cook
It is important for us to become well educated on this issue and assume responsibility for ensuring that the religious freedom we have inherited is passed on to future generations. We must work together to both protect religious freedom and restore morality. “Restoring Morality and Religious Freedom,” Ensign, September 2012 (p. 37).
Elder D. Todd Christofferson
[I]t is important that you become informed about existing and potential threats to religious freedom….To do that in a truly helpful way, you need to excel in your chosen field of practice, to maintain the highest professional and personal standards, and then to get involved in the important institutions and forums that pertain to your field. You need to be among the best and most respected in your area of the law. As you strive toward this goal, you will gain the expertise to detect religious freedom threats in specific areas of the law and public policy. You will have the respect of your professional colleagues, so they will listen to you as you raise concerns. And in some instances you will be in a position—perhaps even within government—from which you can directly propose and help enact positive solutions. So pursue excellence in your chosen area of practice; be attorneys of the highest integrity; earn the personal and professional respect of your legal peers; get involved where it matters in your field; and be, as it were, “watchmen on the tower” of religious freedom. Elder D. Todd Christofferson, “Watchmen on the Tower,” Clark Memorandum, Spring 2015, p. 11.
