Tag Archive: Polygamy


It’s official – the LDS Church (the Mormons) have finally, at long last, publicly admitted that founder Joseph Smith Jr. had “as many as 40 wives.”

While attempting to be “transparent” – the polygamy essay still propagates outright falsehoods, however.  For instance, in the very first paragraph is this obvious whopper: “In biblical times, the Lord commanded some of His people to practice plural marriage—the marriage of one man and more than one woman.”   By using the word, “biblical” the reader is led to wrongfully believe polygamy is/was a selective “commandment” of God.  Nothing could be further from the truth.   There is absolutely no such “commandment” anywhere in the Holy Bible.  Follow the footnote and you will see that the primary “reference” is Smith’s 1843 “revelation” on polygamy – which of course was written by Smith years after he was caught by Emma rolling young Fanny Alger around in the hay in the family barn.  OOPS.  Nice try Mormon “leaders”.   Calling a sow’s ear a silk purse is getting old!

A careful reading of Genesis 16 will show the truth – the IDEA of providing a younger, riper womb for Abraham to fertilize was totally and exclusively that of Sarah.  God had nothing to do with it.  The fact is, Sarah’s lack of faith in God’s promise caused all sorts of heartache and problems.   Typical.  Such things usually happen when people think they can take things into their own hands instead of having pure faith.

But the LDS Church has a much bigger problem to deal with now that at least SOME of their more embarrassing warts are self-exposed.  Honest members aren’t stupid.  They have to wonder why it is the Church has LIED about this absolute truth for so many years.

Remember an LDS author named Fawn Brodie?  She had the chutzpah to honestly write a book about this very subject, and titled it “No Man Knows My History.”   Brodie was vilified and excommunicated for writing the truth about EXACTLY what the LDS Church is now publicly admitting.  Brodie’s name became synonymous with “evil apostate” and I’m quite confident she suffered immensely by such un-Christlike treatment.   It seems the LDS Church owes Brodie and her entire family a deep and sincere apology!

The fallout from this latest “essay” is well documented in a recent NY Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/11/us/its-official-mormon-founder-had-up-to-40-wives.html?partner=msft_msn&_r=0    Bet Tommy Monson and the PR boys at Adelmann and Company didn’t see THAT coming!

I submit here is what honest LDS members should be asking their “leaders”:

1.  Is it ever OK for LDS leaders to “Lie for the Lord”?  Keep in mind that many early LDS “prophets” openly lied about polygamy when interviewed by the “gentile” press.  Could you ever imagine Jesus lying about His core doctrines?

2.  Why is Warren Jeffs currently languishing in a Texas prison for doing EXACTLY the same thing that Joseph Smith did during the years 1835 to his death in 1844?  Why is Jeffs a criminal, and Joseph Smith a revered demigod to mainstream Mormons when clearly they are two peas in a most corrupt pod of deceit.

3.   Why is it that Paul, or Peter, or James, John, or any of the original apostles never felt the need to write spin-doctoring essays about Jesus’ practices and hypocritical actions?  (Or for that matter, any “prophet” of ancient Israel?)

4.  If the leaders have systematically lied about Joseph’s polygamy, what else have they been lying about over the years?  In other words, credibility has been lost forever.

 

The bottom line is this and every other of the previous 12 “essays” stands as strong witnesses that Mormonism is simply a man-made false religion.  Nothing more, and nothing less.   As such, it is no wonder their false doctrines deny the free gift of Christ’s saving Grace and is clearly “another gospel” which is accursed!  (Galatians 1:8-9)  Its “restored priesthood” is a total sham, and has absolutely no power to save souls, and bring them to the true, biblical Christ.

It is simply impossible to grow a healthy, firm tree from a dead and corrupt root.

 

 

1.  Early Mormons are today euphemistically called “pioneers”.  Actually, they were an extremely zealous group of expatriates led by money-grubbing charlatans and frauds who left the U.S. primarily to establish a new nation/state.  In a letter to U.S. President James Polk, Mormon “Prophet” Brigham Young declared:

“We would esteem a territorial government OF OUR OWN as one of the richest boons of earth, and while we appreciate the Constitution of the United States as the most precious among the nations, we feel that we had rather retreat to the deserts, islands, or mountain caves than consent to be ruled by governors and judges whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocence and virtue, who delight in injustice and oppression.”

There it is, Brigham once again played the “persecution” card while in reality the Mormons were constantly bilking their “gentile” neighbors with counterfeit coins and other chicanery.  In fact – that is exactly why Brigham and his brigands left Nauvoo in the dead of winter – to escape FEDERAL marshals and their arrest warrants for counterfeiting, and of course, to establish their own “Kingdom”!

2.  Brigham Young, Joseph Smith, Hyrum Smith, and ALL of the top Mormons were master Masons taking marching orders from one Albert Pike.

3.  Brigham called his new Kingdom – “Deseret” which is a unique Book of Mormon term that has sparked some linguistic debate and study in and of itself.   As Mormon writer Barney explains: “The source for the name “Deseret” is a single passage in the Book of Mormon: “And they did also carry with them deseret, which, by interpretation, is a honey bee, and thus they did carry with them swarms of bees. . . .” (Ether 2:3). Brigham liked the imagery of cooperative labor and industry brought to mind by honeybees and their hives, and to this day one may tour his personal residence, which is called the Beehive House. The beehive is the official symbol of the State of Utah.”   Source: http://bycommonconsent.com/2006/11/03/bcc-papers-1-2-barney/

4.  Imagine my dismay as a purely ignorant and naive “active Mormon”, when, while perusing the voluminous writings of Grand Dragon Albert Pike, I came across this unexpected esoteric clue concerning Brigham Young and his Kingdom of the Deseret (Bee-hive): “The BEE-HIVE is emblematic of the Third Degree.  It is the perfect system of the ANTI-CHRIST to Come!” 

Now, it must be understood that initiation into the Masonic “Third Degree” is only achieved upon witnessing and/or participating in HUMAN SACRIFICE – the ultimate sacrament to their God Lucifer – the “light-bringer” according to Albert Pike.   Notice also that the Beehive was also adopted by the Fabian society – the literal “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

5.  Is Mormonism with all of its beautiful temples and meeting-houses REALLY the kingdom and system of the coming ANTI-CHRIST?    Consider the FACT that Brigham Young instituted a doctrine and practice called blood atonement in his Kingdom of Deseret in the Great Basin.   Most honest Mormons turn a blind eye to this FACT and instead choose to ignore it.  In a nutshell, Brigham “revealed” that there are certain human sins that can only be “atoned” for by the shedding of the sinner’s blood.  These capital sins included adultery and the worst sin of all to Brigham: open questioning of the King and his court.   (He called it “apostasy” and many a questioning Mormon had their throat slit by the Danite enforcers.)

I submit only a demonic Anti-Christ would openly preach to his Church flock that the Blood of Christ is not sufficient for ALL human errors and “sins”.

6.  In reality, all Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and every other Mormon “prophet” since then are concerned with is PROFIT – aka the pursuit of Mammon.  According to Martin Harris – the Book of Mormon was published first and foremost to turn a “tidy profit” and make him and Joseph rich.  Only later, when the Book flopped and didn’t sell – did they resort to forming a religion instead.  As it turned out, that was infinitely more profitable than a book.  Smith bilked his loyal “Saints” in Kirtland Ohio (including former B of M “scribe” Oliver Cowdery) of their money through a completely fraudulent Banking ponzi scheme.   Counterfeiting the U.S. coinage soon followed, and ultimately resulted in Mormons being hated and persecuted.

I humbly submit that if the Mormons had been truly Christ-like and loving in every way – they would have been good neighbors and wouldn’t have been “persecuted” – for it takes two to fight.   Remember, the “persecution” myth of necessity entails the fact that the state and federal governments were completely and totally Satanic and evil in the extreme.   Politicians are far from perfect – but they are/were not ALL purely evil satanists!

7.  Polygamy is flat out dark and evil in every way.  It is so amazing to see modern “mainstream” LDS people turn up their noses in disgust to followers of Warren Jeffs and other “Mormon Fundamentalists” who continue the “new and everlasting covenant” that is still in the mainstream Mormon’s book of Doctrine and Covenants (Section 132).    They mock and scorn their Fundamentalist brethren as they openly give homage and honor to Joe Smith and Brigham Young who were even worse polygamists than Warren Jeffs!!!   This is complete and total hypocrisy – for the Mormon polygamist “fundamentalists” ARE MERELY PURE MIRROR IMAGES OF LIFE IN BRIGHAM’S KINGDOM OF DESERET ESTABLISHED IN 1847 UTAH!
