The Constitution of the USA is Inspired?

September 30, 2010

I was listening to NPR this morning and heard a journalist say offhandedly that “The Mormon religion believes that the first article of the US Constitution is inspired.”  I had never heard that before and I am curious if any of you have heard of this.  Unless I misunderstood, it seems the journalist thinks that Mormons put the first article of the Constitution on the same level as the Bible, Book of Mormon, and their other various “holy” books.

Have you ever heard of it?  Is it true that Mormons believe this?  Please comment and let me know.

    This link to the Encyclopedia of Mormonism (at BYU) indicates they do hold the U.S. Constitution in extremely high regard, and call it inspired. Not just the first article, but the entire document. Couldn’t hazard a guess from this article whether or not it carries the same weight with them as their other “holy books”.
