BYU Speeches by Ezra Taft Benson

Signing the Constitution - 5

(The Old Man Wept – Del Parson)

“We have been instructed again and again to reflect more intently on the meaning and importance of the Constitution and to adhere to its principles.  What have we done about this instruction?  Have we read the Constitution and pondered it?  Are we aware of its principles?  Can we recognize when a law is constitutionally unsound?  The Church will not tell us how to do this, but we are admonished to do it.” (Ezra Taft Benson, The Constitution: A Heavenly Banner, p. 29)
