Yesterday was a really neat experience to be in the midst of an apostle of Jesus Christ's church. Elder Dallin H. Oaks came to the University I attend and spoke to us about religious freedoms and freedom of speech. He is a very powerful speaker and was once a U.S. Supreme Court Judge.
He spoke about our Constitution and how it was inspired through God to preserve America and allow for the Restoration of the gospel to occur. He touched on many topics of today's society and brought in a global perspective. It was an awesome experience and I got to shake his hand after the devotional ended.
An apostle for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said religious freedom is being threatened by societal forces intimidating those with religious points of view from having a voice in the public square. Elder Dallin H. Oaks made the comments today in a major address to Brigham Young University-Idaho students on the importance of preserving the religious freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution.
