    Read up on the Edmunds-Tucker Act, one of the more deplorable acts of the US Congress, which took the right to vote from all the women of the Utah Territory, disallowed illegitimate children from inheriting from their parents, took away voting rights from anyone ~who believed~ in polygamy, not just the practitioners, and required a certificate to swear to this before being allowed to hold a government office, and then try to justify the sloppy reporting that “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons, which abandoned polygamy in 1890 as Utah was seeking statehood.”

    Well here’s the thing. The Mormon church changes its opinion all the time on things that make them unpopular. Like not allowing blacks to become official members until 1978. they did this because of negative publicity. So the “prophet” had a “revelation” that god didn’t hate African Americans anymore. The Mormon church has an easy out on any issue because of these “revelations.” including polygamy

    John, just to inform you, no race has ever been denied membership into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. To be a member, all you have to do is be baptized by someone holding the proper authority and power, which any race has access to if they pass the interview. What you are mistaking as “official membership” in the church is actually their opportunity to hold the Priesthood, which is the power that we use to facilitate our meetings, and perform ordinances. The Church is not as “wishy washy” as you’re making it out to be. 20 years ago the church released a statement called The Family: A Proclamation to the World, citing that same sex marraige is not part of God’s plan to create families, which are the basic unit of organization in Heaven, and we have stood by that statement ever since then. God loves all of his children regardless of what color their skin may be.
