Most of these videos appear to be from briefings received by senior church leaders between 2007 and 2012,” said Eric Hawkins, spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “In these committee meetings, presentations are routinely received from various religious, political and subject-matter experts on a variety of topics.
“The purpose,” he added, “is to understand issues that may face the church and is in pursuit of the obligation church leaders feel to be informed on and have open discussion about current issues. This is an informational forum, not a decision-making body.”
In the meeting, the Quorum of the 12 apostles discussed about Political Influence, Gay Marriage, Marijuana and other current issues.
Former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Michael Leavitt said he made presentations to the group as a private citizen on three occasions about different topics — the healthcare debate, religious freedom and tax policy according to Deseret News.
”Nothing that was spoken of there is uncomfortable at all for me,” he said, “but it’s always unfortunate when people take it upon themselves to get information surreptitiously and leak it for their own purposes, he added.”
