Clarification on Mormonism
A com box contributor formerly named Anonymous, now known as truthisgood, thinks I am guilty of spreading lies and bearing false witness, in reference to publishing Brigham Young's (alleged?) statement about making the American people swallow Mormonism. This quote is mentioned in at least two other sources, E.A. Folk's The Story of Mormonism, and One Nation Under Gods by Abanes.
Truthisgood's proof of my false-witness-bearing is a line from a 1911 New York Times edition claming he may not have said it.
Okay. I hereby concur that he may not have said it. Which to my mind is the same as granting that may have said it. (But, again, he may not have.)
Still, despite how nice the majority of Mormons are, I think Mormonism is a false religion, and now await the charge of hatred and bigotry.
