| "I've never spoken to God. I'd
be doggone pissed off if anyone said that."
-- Senator Orrin Hatch,
(Salt Lake Tribune; p. A-1; July 15, 1999)
It is no wonder that Senator Hatch is repulsed at being associated with Joseph Smith's
revelation of the Constitution being saved as it hangs by a thread.
Like the mainstream Mormon culture he epitomizes, Hatch does more to promote the
Socialist New World Order than he does to preserve freedom.
The famous prophecy does not read that the Mormons save the Constitution, but that it
will be the "Elders of Israel." There is a difference.
The name Israel implies a covenant relationship with God -- including personal
communion with God.
Hatch, so typical of a mainstream Mormonism, expresses deep disapproval that someone
might be saying he has ever talked with God, as if it were a sign of buffoonery -- even
though talking with God through the power of the Holy Ghost and eventually even face to
face is a hallmark feature of true discipleship.
Hatch is neither a Constitutionalist nor a Saint according to the essential definitions
of those words.
The imperiled freedoms vouchsafed in the Constitution will be saved by freedom-loving,
revelation receiving, covenant people of God.
Yes, a few Mormons will be included in those ranks, but certainly not the mainstream,
and certainly not Hatch, who represents mainstream Utah.

Amen! to your Hatch article! He's a scarey one. All Mormondom will trust him because of
his church affiliation.
That is an OUTSTANDING editorial! Wow, you hit the nail right on the head. Senator
Hatch disgusts me with his use of his LDS church affiliation and his bamboozling of most
"lemming" members into believing that he can lead the country properly. I
too believe that the Senator has done immense damage to our nation in his
"service" in the Senate.
Keep up the great work.
