Journal of Discourses 2:83 “…What would it have done for us, if they had known that many of us had more than one wife when we lived in Illinois? They would have broken us up, doubtless, worse than they did. They may break us up, and route us from place to another, but by and by we shall come to a point where we shall have all the women, and they will have none. You may think I am joking about this, but I can bring you the truth of God to demonstrate it to you. I have not advanced anything I have not got an abundance of backing for.” – Orson Hyde, Great Salt Lake City, October 6, 1854
Deuteronomy 17:17 “Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away…”
Why is this the thought process of a so-called godly man?
Whatever happened to not committing adultery, or Jesus’ admonition that a man will leave his parents and cleave to his wife?
It’s interesting how LDS leadership will brag about their illicit behavior in Illinois a decade after the fact. He just proved Joe Smith a liar because he ranted on and on for 13 years he only had one wife. See Polygamy Denials.
Lastly, where’s all this ‘abundance’ of proof they’ll ‘have all the women’ Mr. Hyde isn’t sharing with us?
