Regarding the U.S. Constitution...

"The Church unequivocally declares, nothing doubting, that God Himself set up the Constitution of the United States, and that He so declared, saying:

"I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose," and the Constitution shall "be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles."
--D&C 101:80, 77

The Church further declares that such laws must be framed

"and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life."
--D&C 134:2

The Church has, for one hundred years, accepted as complying with the divine mandate, the form of government set up under the Constitution."
