Hatch talks of God, support for military
Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, disarmed a crowd of about 350 mostly military types Thursday in Salt Lake City by leading with a joke about Mormons and a quip about running for public office.
The serious side of Hatch's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Utah continued with his testimony about how God exists.
"I can tell you from experience that it works to believe in God," said Hatch, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
