False Teachings of Mormonism

Lies about Polygamy 

Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg 270; “”Do the Mormons believe in having more wives than one?” No, not at the same time. But they believe that if their companion dies, they have a right to marry again. But we do disapprove of the custom, which has gained in the world, and has been practiced among us, to our great mortification, in marrying in five or six weeks, or even in two or three months, after the death of their companion. We believe that due respect ought to be had to the memory of the dead, and the feelings of both friends and children.”

Proverbs 19:9; “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.”

At the time of Smith’s statements it was 1842. He had 20+ wives at the time. Within a year’s time he’d add another 30 or so. http://lifeafterministry.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/joseph-smiths-wives-5/
