I have a question. If as taught lds believe Jesus was crucified because He was a polygamist, even though lds will tell you polygamy was a common practice at the time and a major tenant of their “new” faith - why did their god change his mind on the issue? So wouldn't the lds who still practice polygamy actually be the true lds?

I believe only Lds apostle Orson Hyde (and a few others) taught that Jesus was a polygamist. So, most Lds don't currently believe that. Yet, you don't see them denouncing past "apostles" like Hyde (or others) as false prophets because of that. (They like to have their cake and eat it, too).
