I’m an American Latter-day Saint (Mormon) who loves his church and country. My First Principle, or maxim in all religious, political, and philosophic doctrine is, “Teach them correct principles, and allow them to govern themselves. Thus, free agency & persuasion is always superior to force & coercion.”
There are two major categories at LDS Patriot, Mormonism (LDS) and News and politics. Mormonism (LDS) are posts for defending the doctrines, practices and leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). News and politics are posts for the engagement and discussion news and politics.
Why do I post so much on Islamism or militant Islam?
Their jihad, which I know to be an unholy war, is aimed at establishing a global Islamic state based solely on strict interpretation of the Koran (sharia). The political ideology of Islamism is bent on destroying any state, government or people which is not based on their utopian view of Islamic political power and control.
The Muslim Brotherhood used a slogan that is still current in the Islamist movement: “The Koran is our constitution.” Gilles Kepel, Professor of Middle East Studies at the Institute for Political Studies in Paris, writes in his book, Jihad: The Trail of Political Islam, the following
Islam, for the Brothers, was a complete and total system, and there was no need to go looking for European [or American] values as a basis for social order. Everything was made clear in the Koran, whose moral principles, the Brothers claimed, were universal. This doctrine was shared by the entire Islamist movement, whatever their other views. All agreed that the solution to the political problems facing Muslims lay in the setting up of an Islamic state that would implement the law of the sacred texts of Islam-the sharia-as the caliph had done in the past.
One reason I post so frequently about militant Islam is because I believe it to be the secret combination Book of Mormon prophets warned us about.
Ether 8 – Modern Gentiles are warned against the secret combination which shall seek to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries:
16 And they were kept up by the power of the devil to administer these oaths unto the people, to keep them in darkness, to help such as sought power to gain power, and to murder, and to plunder, and to lie, and to commit all manner of wickedness and whoredoms.
17 And it was the daughter of Jared who put it into his heart to search up these things of old; and Jared put it into the heart of Akish; wherefore, Akish administered it unto his kindred and friends, leading them away by fair promises to do whatsoever thing he desired.
18 And it came to pass that they formed a secret combination, even as they of old; which combination is most abominable and wicked above all, in the sight of God;
19 For the Lord worketh not in secret combinations, neither doth he will that man should shed blood, but in all things hath forbidden it, from the beginning of man.
20 And now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations, for it hath been made known unto me that they are had among all people, and they are had among the Lamanites.
21 And they have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am now speaking, and also the destruction of the people of Nephi.
22 And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, until they shall spread over the nation, behold, they shall be destroyed; for the Lord will not suffer that the blood of his saints, which shall be shed by them, shall always cry unto him from the ground for vengeance upon them and yet he avenge them not.
23 Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain—and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.
24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or wo be unto it, because of the blood of them who have been slain; for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who built it up.
25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the devil, who is the father of all lies; even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning; who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out from the beginning.
26 Wherefore, I, Moroni, am commanded to write these things that evil may be done away, and that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, but that they may be persuaded to do good continually, that they may come unto the fountain of all righteousness and be saved.
D&C 134: 7 … religious opinions not to justify sedition nor conspiracy.
D&C 88: 78-79 …78) Teach ye diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that are expedient for you to understand; 79) Of things both in heaven and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, things which must shortly come to pass; things which are at home, things which are abroad; the wars and the perplexities of the nations, and the judgments which are on the land; and a knowledge also of countries and of kingdoms-
