A Scientist: What a ridiculous comparison to make-that the effort of the Church
to find land for its 10k+ members when it was forced to re-locate by "taking
advantage of..laws" to the lawless efforts by the citizens of Missouri who
forced the Mormons from their homes in order to take advantage of a potentially
beneficial law.I can't figure what "Science" teaches
that perverted logic?
The Mormon movement was, itself, a deliberate "land grab", taking
advantage of homesteading laws (supported by the upstate NY political party -
the Free Soil Party), and using those consecrated assets to capitalize the
Kirtland (anti)Banking scam in lieu of silver or gold.
