Quotes by H. Verlan Andersen:

As a true spokesman for liberty, he* believes that “when a man stands for freedom he stands for God. And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God. And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God…” He is a man who has never feared being controversial in defense of freedom and liberty. He believes – with Jefferson – that “He who fears criticism is hopeless. Only those who do things are critizied. To hesitate for fear of criticism is cowardly.”

* Ezra Taft Benson.
Ezra Taft Benson. An Enemy Hath Done This, Preface.

The moral responsibility for acts performed in the name of government must rest on some person or persons. The actions of government are the actions of men performed by men at the command of men, and someone is morally accountable to God for every regulation of human conduct by force, and for every forcible taking of human life, liberty, and property. In a nation of self-governing people, that someone is everyone—everyone who approves of the law in question, or because of indifference has failed to oppose it. With the privilege of self-government comes the corresponding responsibility to answer for what that government does, and no member of a free society can avoid his own obligation.

It is corrupted government through which men commit countless abominations. We understand why it is called the mother of abominations. Throughout what organization other than government can this be done? When we further recognize that Satan and his forces prostitute the Lord’s government, and use it to destroy freedom rather than preserve it, we understand better why the prophets would call it the “whore of all the earth”. (1 Nephi 14:10).

One of the names used by John to describe Satan’s organization was “Mystery,” (Rev. 17:5) perhaps to indicate that its identity would not be known.

The Great and Abominable Church of the Devil.

We are easily deceived about government, because we are inclined to accept the following fallacies:

  • Anything legal is also moral.
  • We are not individually responsible for government action.
  • A different moral law applies when men act in concert, than it does when they act alone.

Communism is more diabolical than any other type of priestcraft because its central doctrines are atheism and the destruction of free agency through socialism.

The Great and Abominable Church of the Devil.

Let us emphasize the point that enforced priestcraft is the most essential part of Satan’s plan to impose state slavery upon a people.

The Lord has provided civil laws in this dispensation as in others. Although He had no prophet through whom He spoke at the time He caused a government to be established on this chosen land, still we have His assurance through a prophet, that both: “The laws and constitution of the people” were formed under His direction (D&C 101:77). He raised up “wise men” and worked His will through them. (D&C 101:80).

The Great and Abominable Church of the Devil.

As originally interpreted, the United States Constitution denied government the right to regulate and control the citizen in the use of his property. Over the years the commerce clause and the general welfare clause have been so interpreted as to permit both the state and Federal governments to regiment labor, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, communication, finance and all other forms of economic activity. Today, if there is any limit on the power of government to regulate, no one knows what that limit is.
