What is Mormonism government relations?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) strives to have a positive relationship with the governments of the nations and territories in which they are located. This means that the Church's proselyting activities are severely limited in many nations who do not wish to allow foreign Christian churches (such as China, Cuba, and many Middle Eastern nations). The Church complies with all laws, and has a history of putting a stop to practices or programs if there are laws made which make it difficult or impossible to continue. The Church also gets involved in the political process by advocating morally conservative legislation which promotes Biblical values. (They do not, however, promote political parties or individual candidates.) In the United States, top Mormon leaders have met with most, if not all, of the US presidents in the past century.

The Mormon Church also encourages it's members to obey the law and participate in the political process, even cancelling meetings during election days, caucus meetings, etc.

One of the Church's 13 Articles of Faith states:

"We believe in beings subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."
