Actually, I **WOULD** still call him a Mormon. The Mormon/LDS church suddenly decided polygamy was wrong when they were told that they wouldn't be allowed to be a state so long as polygamy was permitted/encouraged.

The Elders, or whatever you call them, caved and joined the US. That wouldn't change the original doctrine. . . .

Not defending him, just pointing out that the Government forced a change in Mormon doctrine a century or so ago. . .
