Holy Spirit Could Get Females Pregnant – Mormon Quotes

Journal of Discourses 1:51; I have given you a few leading items upon this subject, but a great deal more remains to be told. Now remember from this time forth, and for ever, that Jesus Christ was not begotten by the Holy Ghost. I will repeat a little anecdote. I was in conversation with a certain learned professor upon this subject, when I replied, to this idea—”if the Son was begotten by the Holy Ghost, it would be very dangerous to baptize and confirm females, and give the Holy Ghost to them, lest he should beget children, to be palmed upon the Elders by the people, bringing the Elders into great difficulties.”” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, April 9, 1852

Romans 8:9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

I remember the first time I saw this in the JoD.  I’d been out of the Church for about a month and I still remember the horrible feeling I had in the pit of my stomach when I realized what my beloved Church was doing.
