The Church Needs a Two Party System

“I also support what has been said by the Brethren–that it is in the interest of the Church to have a two-party system and not to have one party that is exclusively LDS and the other party exclusively non-LDS. Both locally and nationally, the interests of the Church and its members are served when we have two good men or women running on each ticket, and then no matter who is elected, we win.” (James E. Bell, In The Strength of the Lord: The Life and Teachings of James E. Faust, Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1999, p. 86)

I am passionate about politics. What I find the most interesting about politics is the theater, strategy, and positioning. My writing revolves around political process and impacts of policy decisions. In the daytime I currently work for Henkel, after working for P&G for the last 10 years. I completed my undergrad at Arizona State and MBA at University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN. I am a husband of ten years and father to four daughters (10,8,4,3). Politically speaking I find myself in the middle. I side more with conservatives on social platforms, but lean left on the role of government.

    President Hinckley said it best when he told Scott Howell (a candidate for US Senate) “tell everyone you know we are not a Republican church. It does us no good to align with one political party. We need people in both parties to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
