Interview with Elders Nelson and Wickman

The Pew Forum recently interviewed Elder Russel M. Nelson (of the Quorum of the 12) and Elder Lance B Wickman (Church Legal Counsel). They discussed the church's public relations, specifically, how they are affected or not affected by all the recent and upcoming media attention to the church (Romney, PBS documentary, MMM movie, etc.).

I think Elder Wickman's response to the question about Americans being generally reluctant to vote for a Mormon did not do a very good job of reinforcing the church's political neutrality stance. However, I only found one doctrinal error in the article:

"The church considers the quorum second in ecclesiastical authority to the church's First Presidency..."

(Emphasis Added.) Not according to the Doctrine and Covenants we don't.
