"Make them swallow Mormonism"

A contributor to Politico.com known as GOPLatina relays some hard truths about Mormonism you've never heard before. Scroll down a bit.

A small sample:

"pull the wool over the eyes of the American people and make them swallow Mormonism" - Mormon Prophet, Brigham Young, 1875. D.C. printing office 1904, Vol I, 15.

Told you so.

When I feel stressed I just whisper, "Moroni" or "Kolob." Then I feel better.
No offense intended to any real angels named "Moroni."

I ask thee - would the all holy uncreated God name an angel moron with an i? I'm just asking.

Merry and happy Christmas, Laura -- and say hi to your angelically nomeclated husband.

Blood atonement is another hidden gem of Mormon beliefs.

The E.A. Folk quote originated during the Reed Smoot trials long after Brigham Young died.

Folk was a Baptist.

Brigham Young never said the so-called "Swallow Mormonism" quote.

http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=9D07E0DE1E31E233A2575AC0A9679D946096D6CF

This quote is from the NY Times 11/9/1911:

"It is possible that the Prophet of Utah never uttered the words attributed to him and quoted above."

To continue to quote something that was never uttered as something true is to bear false witness. Do not be guilty of false witness.

Sorry, I no longer respond to anonymous combox posters. I don't mind correcting errors I have passed on, but if you lack the courage to sign your real name, at least pick a consistent fake one.

Patrick,
1st: you did respond to my anonymous comment
2nd: not sure what your fear is, but, in order for anyone to stop bearing false witness I will use my www.godtube.com user id in this comment.

Let's leave the lies to journalists, the media, and politicians.

Stand on the higher ground. The more truth that is published, the more peace we can find.
