LDS Church issues statement regarding Boston Globe story

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints takes issue with The Boston Globe on their 19 October 2006 story suggesting the Church is institutionally supporting a political campaign.

The Church issued the following statement in response:

“In light of articles appearing in the media, we reaffirm the position of neutrality taken by the Church, and affirm the long-standing policy that no member occupying an official position in any organization of the Church is authorized to speak in behalf of the Church concerning the Church’s stand on political issues.”
