Crosstalk - America
December 20, 2007
Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Rocky Hulse
Rocky Hulse, a 6th generation former Mormon, is the Director of the Nauvoo Christian Visitors Center in Nauvoo, Illinois. He has authored a book entitled, When Salt Lake City Calls--Is There a Conflict Between Mormonism and the Public Trust?
Rocky believes that the Mormon church is a master at public relations, however Rocky believes the image doesn't comport with reality.
The reality begins with the male-centered Mormon priesthood which is the ruling entity and power. In Mormonism, God is said to have created the universe, and that he continues to control it, through the priesthood.
Young Mormon males go through various ordinations depending upon their age. Rocky noted that there are two specific levels of priesthood, the Aaronic priesthood and the Melchizedek priesthood. This latter priesthood is the one alluded to earlier that created, operates, and rules our universe. In Mormonism, this priesthood will also be responsible for those universes, earths, and physical offspring that will be created in the future by those Mormon males who progress in this life and the next to become gods themselves.
Rocky discusses why there is a conflict of interest between Mormonism and the public trust. It has to do with the oaths of covenants and obedience to Mormonism that must come first before any other allegiances. This is especially important when you consider that the leader/prophet of the Mormon church is considered the mouthpiece of God on earth.
As an example, Rocky hypothetically asked that if there was a bill on the desk of "President" Mitt Romney, and the prophet of the Mormon church calls and wants that bill vetoed, is Mr. Romney going to argue with the man considered to be God's oracle on earth?

It is Hulse's contention - and his claims are heavily footnoted and documented - that LDS members are to place their primary source of guidance on church leaders, who are anointed by God.

Now that you have watched this video... read the new book:
"When Salt Lake City Calls: Is there a conflict between Mormonism and the public trust?"
by Rocky Hulse
Most of those speaking of their concern about a Mormon President in this video are missing the most important issue: allegiance. It's not the bizarre doctrines of Mormonism, it's the allegiance factor. Yes, I have serious doctrinal issues with Mormonism compared to Christianity; however, that isn't the issue. The issue is the oaths and covenants that Mormons have sworn of absolute obedience and allegiance to the Mormon Church and to its living male hierarchy. We are a Republic, not a Democracy. We elect people to go and represent us, "We the People." How can a Mormon represent "We the People," when they are bound by absolute oaths and covenants of servitude to primarily 15 elderly men in Salt Lake City (it also runs to local level leadership as well). If a Mormon in public office was directed by their leadership to vote or act a certain way, and they didn't do it, their refusal could have eternal consequences. Therefore, the name of the book: "When Salt Lake City Calls." The American voter deserves to know what obligations a Mormon has been placed under by their church which conflict with our American democratic ideals and, which could prevent a Mormon politician from freely acting in the best interest of the voter: "We the People."
