If You Read Only Seven Scriptures Today

...make it these seven

Jesus commanded, "…Ye shall not esteem one flesh above another, or one man shall not think himself above another."
(Book of Mormon, Mosiah 23:7)

"And again I say unto you, let every man esteem his brother as himself."
(Doctrine and Covenants 38:24)

"And there was a strict command throughout all the churches that there should be no persecutions among them, that there should be an equality among all men; That they should let no pride nor haughtiness disturb their peace; that every man should esteem his neighbor as himself…"
(Book of Mormon, Mosiah 27:3-4)

"We believe that religion is instituted of God; and that men are amenable to him, and to him only, for the exercise of it, unless their religious opinions prompt them to infringe upon the rights and liberties of others…."
(Doctrine and Covenants 134:4)

We do not believe it just to mingle religious influence with civil government, whereby one religious society is fostered and another [prohibited] in its spiritual privileges, and the individual rights of its members, as citizens, denied."
(Doctrine and Covenants 134:9)

"…it was strictly contrary to the commands of God that there should be a law which should bring men on to unequal grounds."
(Book of Mormon, Alma 30:7)
