Damon Linker writes in the present issue of The New Republic concerning the Romney/Prophet dilemma. It's something I discussed on my blog back in July regarding Romney as the Prophet's puppet.

Can a man who believes that there is a old guy in Salt Lake City that literally can speak with god think independently enough to govern without any influence? Linker explains it in his article like this....

Does Romney believe that the president of the Mormon Church is a genuine prophet of God? If so, how would he respond to a command from this prophet on matters of public policy? And, if his faith would require him to follow this hypothetical command, would it not be accurate to say that, under a President Romney, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints would truly be in charge of the country—with its leadership having final say on matters of right and wrong?

Members of the LDS church sustain Gordon B. Hinkley as Prophet, Seer, and Revelator. In fact the LDS church still has the original "seer stone" that Joseph Smith used to translate the Book of Mormon. Hinkley could begin translating new scriptures. Maybe it would be the mysterious "sealed" portion of the Book of Mormon. Faithful Mormons around the world would accept this revelations as the direct words of God to his prophet.

BTW, this is one a example of a Seer stone owned by by Joseph Smith
