Joseph Smith was a liar and a pedophile.
Please see a very old publication titled Wife No. 19 written by Mrs Brigham Ann Eliza Young one of the last "Celestial Wives" of Brigham Young who
proceeded Joseph Smith in leadership of the early Mormon church.. The book is an expose' of the Mormon Church. Subtitled " The Story Of A Life In
Bondage, being a Complete Expose of Mormonism and revealing the Sorrows, Sacrifices And Sufferings Of Women In Polygamy."
Along with outlining the life of a Mormon wife the book reveals the early history of the church which took place in Eliza's' childhood as the daughter
of one of the first women forced to take a second wife into her home.
I say Joseph was a liar because the book reveals that during the "wars" which took place in Missouri resulting in the Mormon people being forced from
the state, Joseph Smith had decreed that he had a vision that it was ok to steal from those who were not Mormons as they were not sacred people or
something to that effect. They were told it was ok to murder these people or set fire to their homes and any number of atrocious acts that he declared
he saw in a vision as being justified by his people.
When his eye fell upon a fair maiden after he was already married with several children, he decreed that he had a vision regarding celestial marriages
and polygamy and the rest is history.

If ever a group of people were duped they were duped by Joseph Smith. Any Mormons out there, please research the early years of your church with a
source outside of Mormonism so you get a rounded view to weigh against what you have already been taught by your church leaders. I think you will get
