Freedom is hammered out on the anvil of discussion, dissent, and debate.
Today we live in times of conflict, dissent, differences of opinion, charges, countercharges, disagreements. There is a need for us, perhaps more than ever before, to reach within ourselves and allow the qualities of mutual respect, mingled with charity and forgiveness, to influence our actions with one another; to be able to diagree without becoming disagreeable; to lower our voices and build on common ground with the realization that once the storm has passed, we will still have to live with one another.Author: Loren C Dunn, Source: Ensign, May 1991, p 82
Now, there is much that we can and must do in these perilous times. We can give our opinions on the merits of the situation as we see it, but never let us become a party to words or works of evil concerning our brothers and sisters in various nations on one side or the other. Political differences never justify hatred or ill will. I hope that the Lordís people may be at peace one with another during times of trouble, regardless of what loyalties they may have to different governments or parties.Author: Gordon B. Hinckley, Source: http://www.lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,89-1-353-27,...

That is their right, so long as they do so legally.Author: Gordon B. Hinckley, Source: http://www.lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,89-1-353-27,...
