QUOTE: “Joseph told a prospective wife that submitting to plural marriage would ‘ensure your eternal salvation & exaltation and that of your father’s household. & all your kindred.’ A father who gave his daughter to the Prophet as a plural wife was assured that the marriage ‘shall be crowned upon your heads with honor and immortality and eternal life to all your house both old and young.'” -Richard Lyman Bushman, “Rough Stone Rolling,” p. 439.

COMMENTARY: The actions of one person guarantee the exaltation of other people? Right. Seems legit. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
