Open Letter to Harry Reid

Decided to ditto the dear Father Pavone's open letter to Nancy Pelosi for myself:

23 June 2013

Dear Brother Reid,

You make a mockery of the Mormon faith and of the tens of millions of Americans who consider themselves practicing and respectful Latter-Day Saints.

You speak here of Mormon faith as if it is supposed to hide us from reality instead of lead us to face reality, as if it is supposed to confuse basic moral truths instead of clarify them, and as if it is supposed to help us escape the hard moral questions of life rather than help us confront them.

Whatever Mormon faith you claim to respect and practice, it is not the faith that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints teaches. And I speak for countless Latter-Day Saints when I say that it's time for you to stop speaking as if it were.

Brother Reid, for decades you have gotten away with betraying and misrepresenting the Mormon faith as well as the responsibilities of public office. We have had enough of it. Either exercise your duties as a public servant and a Mormon, or have the honesty to formally renounce them.
