A panel discussion held at Brigham Young University in February 1962 discussed the importance of the U.S. Constitution to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The five participants covered topics such as the preservation of liberty, the LDS belief that the Constitution is divinely inspired, the question of whether church members' political beliefs would affect their standing in the church, and the role of the government in the American economy.
