Now just remember that anything Brigham Young said was only his opinion....
No one but those alive in the days of the greatest affliction and persecution
knows how much the early Mormons endured. While people may misquote, off-quote,
or even accurately quote anything Brigham Young (or Joseph Smith for that
matter) said, they cannot erase the subversion of the constitution during these
times to attack, kill, and take away the freedoms and liberties of Mormons.But, when I say no-one, I begin to wonder Moromons of today will soon
encounter upon the modern day face of America where a currently subtle war is
being fought against the constitution and religion in general. Slowly but
surely, rights are being stripped from those who refuse to follow the trends of
liberalism and remain outspoken and firm in their beliefs contrary to that of
popular culture.Whether blacks, American Indians, Jews, or other
cultures and races in history, many groups have come to know the demonizing hand
of those in power who suppress, persecute, control, and outright take away
freedoms of others just because they are different. The past is always a
self-fulfilling prophecy of the future. Yesterday's slave advocates are
today's reverse discrimination politically correct leaders.
Words to remember: "the man or woman who enjoys the spirit of our religion
has no trials … cast off the yoke of the enemy, and put on the yoke of
Christ, and you will say that his yoke is easy and his burden is light."
I have known that Heavenly Father has a sense of humor. It is never a sense of
humor that ridicules or is unkind, but we learn from it all the time. I am
proud of the struggles of the pioneers that continued God's work after
Joseph Smith's death. I am definitely proud of where the church has come
today! Great article!

anybody know that?
There is no group of people in America, with the possible exception of the
Indigenous Americans, who have more reason to fear and distrust the unchecked
power of the Federal government than the Latter-Day Saints. The fact that so
many of them today blindly follow along with whatever the state tells them they
should do, jingoistically supporting the military-industrial complex and the
national surveillance apparatus without question, swallowing the deceptive bilge
spewed by the mainstream media in the same way that their Catholic and
Protestant cousins do, is totally beyond my comprehension. I guess it is an
inevitable symptom of people not knowing their own history, and thus not being
able to learn any lessons from it whatsoever.
