Thanks Twin Lights…

@donn - and thank you for reminding me (actually reading that entire section in JoD did the trick nicely) of not only what scares me about organized religion, but the totalitarian tendencies inherent in people who claim to know the “mind of God.”

Frankly, I wasn’t quite sure if I was reading the Discourse or an excerpt from Mein Kampf.

Tyler D,

For what it is worth, I have "came and seen" for a quarter of a century (I am married to an active LDS woman), and frankly, your observations ring truer than the claims of the apologists on here.

Brigham Young was a 19th century American whose racial attitudes reflect views that were not uncommon for his times. I offer that not as a justification, but as an explanation.
