“Almighty God . . . has given us our inspired United States Constitution,” President Dallin H. Oaks said on July 1st at the Utah Valley Convention Center where he received an award at America's Freedom Festival in Provo.
“He acted through the wisdom and courage of our Founding Fathers.”
President Oaks, a member of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints received an award for promoting values for God, freedom, and country.
After accepting the award, President Oaks spoke briefly about the importance of both upholding and improving the imperfect but resilient United States Constitution.
“Our original Constitution, adopted in 1787, had what our distinguished [former] Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, herself a member of our most prominent minority, called some ‘birth defects,’” President Oaks said. “Nevertheless, it was our best hope for freedom and self-government. It remains so. Let us be united to defend the great principles of the United States Constitution and to use our precious freedoms to further the work of our faith and to serve our fellow men.”
