Defender of the Faith

QUOTE: “We are accused here of polygamy, and actions the most indelicate, obscene, and disgusting, such that none but a corrupt and depraved heart could have contrived. These things are too outrageous to admit of belief; therefore… I shall content myself to reading our views of chastity and marriage, from a work published by us, containing some of the articles of our Faith. ‘Doctrine and Covenants,’ page 330, …. ‘we declare that we believe that one man should have one wife, and one woman but one husband.'” -Three Nights’ Public Discussion…, published by John Taylor, Liverpool 1850, p 8. [source] (At the time this was published, Taylor had eleven polygamous wives in addition to his first wife.)

COMMENTARY: “None but a corrupt and depraved heart could have contrived” polygamy. You heard it here first, kids. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
