Penny: I am not sure that trying to defend a faith that at its core claims that everyone else is wrong is going to go over very well.
Do you mean this penny ???
The statue to Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, which stands in the middle of Salt Lasker City, Utah...
It reads in part: (quoting Joseph Smith)
“I asked which of the sects was right and which I should join. I was answered I must join none of them; they are all wrong; they teach for doctrine the commandment of men; I received a promise that the fullness of the gospel would at some future time be known to me”
In other words only Mormonism is right and all other religions are wrong, and especially Christianity, of which Joseph Smith claims he was inquiring.
Later Joseph Smith claims that the gospel included multiple sex partners for exaltation, the younger the better..
And in 1831 he began to take advantage of that “promise that the fullness of the gospel would at some future time be known to me” for by that time apparantly he had hearsd from the mormon god..
The very thing his devoted follower Warren Jeffs is now being charged with in his court trial..
