My friend and fellow blogger put this speech by Ezra Taft Benson on his site. His blog is:http://www.awakeandarise.org Please take the time to peruse his website. It is definitely more Mormon oriented than mine but it is full of good resources.
For your own information, Ezra Taft Benson was the prophet of our church from 1985 to 1994. Remember he was the Prophet during our country’s most conservative period. Reagan and Bush Sr. were the presidents for most of that period. There was a period of Glasnost when Gorbachev had rejected communism. The Berlin Wall came down, so by most accounts liberty seemed to be widespread. Yet in this address, he talks about the Constitution being in trouble, the threat of socialism and communism. The need to speak out against wicked leaders. He talked about how this country would move to the Left. So if America at the time was at one of its most prosperous times and communism seemed to be a thing of the past, how did he know what was to come? Hmmmm maybe he was….. I don’t know…..A PROPHET OF GOD!!!!
I have a new favorite prophet-Ezra Taft Benson rocks!
