Quotes on Enemies of the Church

Our enemies have never done anything that has injured this work of God, and they never will.  I look around, I read, I reflect, and I ask the question, Where are the men of influence, of power and prestige, who have worked against the Latter-day Saints?  Where is the reputation, for honor and courage, of the governors of Missouri and Illinois, the judges, and all others who have come here to Utah on special missions against the Latter-day Saints?  Where are there people to do them honor?  They can not be found. . . . Where are the men who have assailed this work?  Where is their influence?  They have faded away like dew before the sun.  We need have no fears, we Latter-day Saints.  God will continue to sustain this work; He will sustain the right.  If we are loyal, if we are true, if we are worthy of this Gospel, of which God has given us a testimony, there is no danger that the world can ever injure us.  We can never be injured . . . by any mortals, except ourselves.  (Elder Heber J. Grant, in Conference Report, Apr. 1909, p. 110.) Doctrine and Covenants Student Manual, p. 297
