Religious Liberty

“The saints can testify whether I am willing to lay down my life for my brethren.  If it has been demonstrated that I have been willing to die for a ‘Mormon’.  I am bold to declare before Heaven that I am just as ready to die in defending the rights of a Presbyterian, a Baptist, or a good man of any other denomination; for the same principle which would trample upon the rights of the Latter-day-Saints would trample upon the rights of the Roman Catholics, or of any other denomination who may be unpopular and too weak to defend themselves”.

History of the Church, 5:498
