The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints takes issue with The Boston Globe on their 19 and 22 October 2006 stories suggesting the Church is institutionally supporting a political campaign.
The Church issued the following statement in response:
“In light of articles appearing in the media, we reaffirm the position of neutrality taken by the Church, and affirm the long-standing policy that no member occupying an official position in any organization of the Church is authorized to speak in behalf of the Church concerning the Church’s stand on political issues."

“Article Called Inaccurate; Church Asserts Neutrality,” Deseret News
“LDS Church Responds to Boston Globe, Romney,” Hotline
