“I believe the church strives mightily to perpetuate the myth, the fable, the fantasy, that President Benson, if not operating on all cylinders, at least is functioning effectively enough to still be regarded as the ‘living, functioning prophet.'”

- Steve Benson, Ezra Taft Benson's Grandson and Pulitzer prize winning cartoonist, as quoted in The Mormon Hierarchy: Extensions of Power, p. 91
