Convention of States was defeated on Feb 23 in the Utah State Senate 12-1-16 after passing the House.
“I am just so grateful and feel that this was a great miracle and the Lord blessed us beyond measure. There are good people on both sides of this issue and we will all be back next year. There is no doubt in my mind that the Lord blessed us because it is His constitution that must be protected, but in His usual way, the blessings come after we have done all we can do. I honestly don’t know if we could have worked any harder or longer. Brigham Young said, “I want to say to every man, the Constitution of the United States, as formed by our fathers, was dictated, was revealed, was put into their hearts by the Almighty, who sits enthroned in the midst of the heavens; although unknown to them, it was dictated by the revelations of Jesus Christ, and I tell you in the name of Jesus Christ, it is as good as I could ask for.” Henry 678; also in Roberts, Mormonism 27-28 and Latter-day Prophets and the United States Constitution, BYU Religious Studies Center.
