Jimmy Carter on values and Mormons

If any of you out there are looking for what to get me for Christmas, Former Presidnet Jimmy Carter's new book Our Endangered Values would be near the top of my list.

In the book, Carter talks about how America's values, those that are actually talked about in the Bible, seem to be ignored by the fundamentalists who run today's Republican Party, and are in The White House.

He expects his book "to resonate deeply" with Utah's Mormon population.

"Mormons are committed to peace. We worship the Prince of Peace not the Prince of Pre-emptive War," Carter said. "Mormons have always shown a strong concern about poor or deprived people. This administration has shown an ostentatious preference for the richest Americans. I think Mormons have shown a great respect for the environment. This administration is the least concerned about environmental issues of any in history." -From a Salt Lake Tribune Article

It should be a good read.
