And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. D&C 98:5
"As Church members, we live under the banner of many different flags," Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve said during the October 1987 general conference. "How important it is that we understand our place and our position in the lands in which we live! We should be familiar with the history, heritage and laws of the lands that govern us. In those countries that allow us the right to participate in the affairs of government, we should use our free agency and be actively engaged in supporting and defending the principles of truth, right and freedom."
