Two Leaders in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Discuss
the Tenets of Their Faith and its Role in Today's Political Life

In a rare interview, Russell M. Nelson, a member of the church's
Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, recently talked with the Pew Forum on
Religion & Public Life about the church's role in American society.
Lance B. Wickman, the church's general counsel, joined him in the
telephone interview from the denomination's headquarters. According to
church doctrine, Nelson and other members of the Quorum of the Twelve
Apostles are prophets, seers and revelators. The church considers the
quorum second in ecclesiastical authority to the church's First
Presidency, which includes the president and two apostles
