James Mooney’s Tribute to
Senator Orrin Hatch, Utah Senator
He followed the premier ethic that I was raised with, a man is only as good as his word. He was not only a man of his word he was loyal and never forgot that he was a representative of ‘all’ of his state of Utah constituent’s rather he agreed with them or not. A wonderful husband, father and patriarch of his family.
His dedication in representing the state of Utah citizenship honorably was unmovable. However he had a line he would not cross and that was concerning integrity in abiding by the ‘principles’ of his LDS Faith, and I am not referring to the cult and hate the government promoting parts of the LDS Church membership. I mean the principle based on “love thy brother as thyself”.
Senator Orrin Hatch exemplified everything that is good about being a man…
It is only fitting that the man that replaced the Honorable Senator Orrin Hatch in Utah’s Senate seat is the honorable Senator Mitt Romney.
