Revised Laws of Illinois, pp. The entire following section is from Rethinking Mormonism. Marriage is a legal contract between one man and one woman. There has never been a law enacted to allow otherwise. All the married Mormons who immigrated to Utah in had been married under the civil laws of their respective states; each one of those states had laws against bigamy, thus making monogamy Wives seeking sex Clear Spring "common law.
The very reason Brigham Young chose to move to Utah, rather than Oregon, California, or Texas, as others suggested, was because Utah was an uninhabited "no man's land". However, the area Naughty lady looking sex Longmont legally Mexican territory and polygamy was illegal in Mexico. In the United States, marriage is a legal contract regulated by the various states. When the Mormons went to Utah inall married Mormons at that time had been married under laws of the states they had come from.
Utah became U. To use an analogy, you get your drivers' license from your state, but it is recognized as being legal in all the states.
Marriage licenses are similar. Once in Utah, Young attempted to establish the "Territory of Deseret," and operate the area as a theocracy, under the "Law of the Lord," which included plural marriage and blood atonement. However, Congress rejected Young's attempt, and inthe area was officially established as Utah Territory, Wives seeking sex Clear Spring territorial overseers appointed from Washington D.
President Millard Fillmore appointed Young as Wives seeking sex Clear Spring. Thus, polygamy became specifically illegal under U. The federal Morrill Act was not the first law which made bigamy illegal; it was merely the first law which specifically reinforced Beautiful couple seeking xxx dating Montpelier state anti-bigamy laws. It was enacted specifically to close the "loophole" that the Mormons mistakenly believed they were operating under.
Even after the passage of the Morrill Act, the Mormon Church continued to practice polygamy in violation of the law for another half-century, and repeatedly challenged those laws.
So anyone who argues that "The Mormons stopped practicing polygamy when it was made illegal" is either misinformed or misrepresenting the truth.
The final nail in the coffin which demonstrates polygamy's illegality was when Ann Eliza Webb filed for "divorce" from Brigham Hot girls from fitzgerald ga and Wievs him for alimony in Young successfully argued that their relationship was "an ecclesiastical affair, not a legal one," and the judge rightly ruled that since there was never any legal marriage, Webb could not file for divorce nor seek alimony.
Since Young himself admitted that his own "plural marriages" were not legal Wives seeking sex Clear Spring, that means that no other Mormon "plural marriage" at any time was a legal marriage either.

All of the ssx laws enacted against Mormon polygamy from to merely served to force the Mormons to comply Wives seeking sex Clear Spring existing common laws.

The entire following Wivves is from Salt Lake City Messenger 66 with minor edits. The Mormons did everything they could to escape the federal deputies. Kimball Young gives this information:.

Under the dates of October 17 and 18,Wivws Abraham H. Cannon recorded the following in his journal:.

How is it that the Church can claim that one of their founding principles Wives seeking sex Clear Spring to obey the laws of the land when they were systematically breaking the law? Gordon B. Hinckley said, in regard to fundamentalist break-offs practicing polygamy today emphasis added:. I wish to state categorically that this Church has nothing whatever to do with those practicing polygamy. They are not members of this Church.

Hinckley, Beautiful adult searching dating CO General Conference. If President Hinckley can condemn people practicing polygamy today because it is against civil laws then how can they justify the early LDS leaders who practiced polygamy in the s when it was also against civil law? One common justification that many Mormons have given for polygamy was that there were more women Wives seeking sex Clear Spring men, and the women needed husbands in the harsh West to survive.
This Wives seeking sex Clear Spring simply not true. Population statistics for Utah from to show that there were always more men than women Caucasian only:. Faithful Mormon apologist John Wibes. Widtsoe, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, debunked the more-women-than-men myth, but many members continue to use it. Plural marriage has been a subject of wide Spding frequent comment. Members of the Church unfamiliar with its history, and many non-members, have set Wives seeking sex Clear Spring fallacious reasons for the origin of this system of marriage among the Latter-day Saints.
The most common of these conjectures is that the Church, through plural marriage, sought to provide husbands for its large surplus of female members. The implied assumption in this theory, that there have been more female than male members in the Church, is not supported by existing evidence.
On the contrary, there seem always to have been more males than females in the Church. Families—father, mother, and Wives seeking casual sex Ensign most commonly joined the Church. Of course, many single women have become converts, but also many single men. The United States census records from toand all available Church records, uniformly show sdx preponderance of males in Utah, and in the Church.
Indeed, the excess in Utah has usually been larger than for the whole United States, as would be expected in a pioneer state.

The births within the Church obey the usual population law—a slight excess of males. Orson Pratt, writing in from direct knowledge of Utah conditions, when the excess of females was supposedly the highest, declares against the opinion that females outnumbered the males in Utah.
The Seer, p. The theory that plural marriage was a consequence of a surplus of female Church members fails from lack of evidence…. Another conjecture is that the people were few in number and that the Church, desiring greater numbers, permitted the practice so that Wives seeking sex Clear Spring phenomenal increase in population could be attained. This is not defensible, since there was no surplus of women…. Evidences and ReconciliationsJohn A. Widtsoe Bookcraft, pp.
An example from the U. Census recordswhich Elder Widtsoe referred to, indicates that in there were 5, males and 4, females in Hancock County, Illinois Nauvoo being the primary population center. Counting seekjng those persons between the ages of 15 and 40, there were 2, men and 1, women. A related justification for polygamy is that polygamy was an effective way to rapidly increase the membership of the Church. However, a group of women can have far more children if they each have their own husband instead of sharing one man.
For example, Brigham Young reportedly had only 57 children by some 29 child-bearing wives out of the 55 total women he married. If each of those women had their own husbands they may have had or more children in total. The essay focuses on polygamy between and after Joseph Smith. Footnote 6 in that essay states in part:. Studies have shown that monogamous women bore more children per wife than did polygamous wives except the first. This admission is interesting as it seems to counter what the Church said in their other essay on:.
Years later in Utah, participants in Nauvoo plural marriage discussed their motives for entering into the practice. God declared in the Book of Mormon that monogamy was the standard; at times, however, He commanded plural marriage so His people could "raise up seed unto [Him]. The problem with the above quote is that it has footnote 45 which says to see footnote 6 of the essay "Plural Marriage and Families in Early Utah" which we have referenced above.
So what is it: The first edition of the Doctrine and Covenants called the Book of Commandments, included a section denying any practice of polygamy:. The Doctrine and Covenants replaced Wives seeking sex Clear Spring Book of Commandments inand this statement on polygamy was in every single edition untilwhen the Doctrine and Covenants first included section justifying plural marriage. It would have been contradictory to have one section condemning polygamy and another approving of it in Cleqr same book so the section condemning polygamy was removed from the Doctrine and Covenants.
Wherefore, my brethren, hear me, and hearken to the word of the Lord: For there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife ; and concubines he shall have none; for I, the Lord God, delight in the chastity of women. And whoredoms are an abomination before me; thus saith the Lord of Hosts. Wherefore, this people shall keep my commandments, saith the Lord of Hosts, or cursed be the land for their sakes.
For if I will, saith the Lord of Hosts, raise up seed unto me, I will command my people; otherwise they shall hearken unto these things. Jacob 2: That fact that Latter-day Saints practiced polygamy in the early days of the Church is well known. What a lot of people don't know, though, is that polygamy was first practiced by Joseph Esx and not Brigham Young.
Joseph was secretive about his practice of polygamy, even lying about it. By the time the Saints went to Utah, the Church was more open about, with Brigham Young officially announcing it in Church-published media almost never mention Joseph's polygamy.
There are some references to the other prophet's plural marriages but not for Joseph. By rarely mentioning Joseph's polygamous marriages, many church members, especially converts, often don't realize how involved Joseph was. See " MormonThink provides a response to those who say members should have known more about Joseph Smith's polygamy.
It seems that it would lend greater credibility Housewives want hot sex MO Bois d arc 65612 Wives seeking sex Clear Spring practice of polygamy if it was plainly taught that Joseph introduced and practiced polygamy since Joseph is the most revered of the Latter-day prophets.
Finding this out was the catalyst for the split in the RLDS church between those that held on to the original concept of a divinely Wives seeking sex Clear Spring church and those that now believe that Joseph was merely inspired and that the Book of Mormon is not historical. Denial of Joseph's involvement xeeking polygamy was reinforced by Emma Smith Joseph's first wife. Emma purposely lied to her children and told them that their father did not practice polygamy.
She wanted to spare her children the pain of knowing the truth. She said:. No such thing as polygamy, or xex wifery, was taught, publicly or privately, before my husband's death, that I have now, or ever had any knowledge of…He had no other wife but me; nor did he to my knowledge ever have. The same God that has thus far dictated me and Wivves me and strengthened me in this work, Sprong me this revelation and commandment on celestial and plural marriage, and the same God commanded me to obey it.
He said to me that unless I accepted it, and introduced it, and practiced it, I, together with my people would be damned and cut off from this time henceforth.
We have got to observe it. It is an eternal principle and was given by way of commandment and not by way of instruction. V, No. Fanny Alger was a teen-aged servant in the Smith's home. Joseph and Emma had "adopted" Fanny when she was about 16 years old Sfeking is believed to be either Joseph Smith's first polygamous "wife" or simply a sexual zex. The Church's essay, "Plural Marriage Free casual sex Kingston-upon-hull Kirtland and Nauvoo," says it was a marriage, whereas Lawrence Foster said, Wives seeking sex Clear Spring evidence strongly suggests that Smith sustained sexual relations with Washington milf wants cock now Alger, it does not indicate that this was viewed either by Wives seeking sex Clear Spring himself or by his associates Sex ads hot lines in california.
Swinging. the time as a 'marriage. Critics believe he had an affair with her, was found out, and then introduced the concept of plural marriage in order to justify and continue his affair with her and then other women.
Some historians record the date of the Wives seeking sex Clear Spring as early aswhile others believe it wasputting Fanny's age anywhere from Fanny departed the Smith home sometime inthe same year Oliver Cowdery was excommunicated for revealing Joseph Smith's "dirty, nasty, filthy affair of his and Fanny Alger's. Warren Parrish, the secretary of Joseph for a period of time, told Benjamin Johnson that he and Oliver Cowdery knew the report of an affair between Joseph and the girl to be true, for they "were spied upon and found together.
Critic's Note: Regardless of whether Joseph Smith's relations with Fanny Alger was merely Wives seeking sex Clear Spring sexual encounter or Wives seeking sex Clear Spring "marriage," it was adulterous. However, Joseph could only be legally married to seeming personand even if it is claimed that the "marriage" was a symbolic "celestial only" sealing, the sealing power was not restored until Aprilafter Joseph's "marriage" to Fanny.
Whether Joseph's "marriage" to Fanny Alger occurred in Wivessit was illegal both under the eex of the land and under any theory of divine authority. Plural marriages are rooted in the notion of "sealing" for time and eternity. It is claimed that the "sealing power" was Wives seeking sex Clear Spring 3 April when Elijah appeared to Joseph Wives seeking sex Clear Spring committed the sealing keys into his hands. Until that time seekking one on earth had authority to "seal" Joseph and Fanny.
As a result, his marriage to her was a nullity from the beginning both in time and eternity, and any Wives seeking sex Clear Spring relationship he had with her was adulterous. Following his marriage to Louisa Beaman and before he married other single women, Joseph Smith was sealed to a number of women who were already married. In other words, Joseph "married" or was "sealed" to women who were already legally wedded to other men at the time.
Following is a list of Joseph's wives that we know of some researchers estimate seekijg the number Wives seeking sex Clear Spring have been higher. Why it may have been that some men were willing to allow Joseph Smith to "marry" their wife is because they had the same attitude as Jedediah M.
Grant, Second Counselor to Brigham Young. In this sermon, delivered 19 FebruaryGrant said emphasis added:. When the family organization was revealed from heaven—the patriarchal order of God, and Joseph began, on the right and on the left, to add to his family, what a quaking there was in Israel. Says one brother to another, "Joseph says all covenants are done away, and none are sfx but the new covenants: And righteous men in every dispensation since the creation, if Wives seeking sex Clear Spring had any keys, had the keys of the kingdom of God; and they extended over this wide world wherever God had a people and a government; and just as far as the Priesthood exercised its authority, just so far the rule of the Almighty reached.
If Joseph had a right to dictate me in Wives seeking sex Clear Spring to salvation, in relation to a hereafter, he had a right to dictate seekjng in relation to all my earthly affairs, in relation to the treasures of the earth, and in relation to the earth itself. He had a right to dictate in relation to the cities of the earth, Wives seeking sex Clear Spring the natives of the earth, and in relation to everything on land and on sea.
That is what he had a right to do, if he had any right at all. If he did not sseeking that right, he did not have the Priesthood of God, he did not have the endless Priesthood that emanates from an eternal being.
A Priesthood that is clipped, and lacks length, is not the Priesthood of God; if it lacks depth, it is Wives seeking sex Clear Spring the Priesthood of God; for the Priesthood in ancient times extended over the wide world, and coped with the universe, and had a right to govern and control the inhabitants thereof, to regulate them, seejing them laws, and Celar those laws.
That power looked like the Priesthood of God. This same Priesthood has been given to Joseph Smith, and has been handed down to his successors. I do not care how many devils rap, it is no trouble to me. I say, rap away, and give as many revelations as you please, whether you are good spirits or bad ones, it does not trouble my cranium.
Rap away, for I trust in the anchor of my soul that is Speing and steadfast, in the Priesthood of God upon the earth. What would a man of God say, who felt aright, when Joseph asked him for his money? He would say, Wives seeking sex Clear Spring, and I wish I had more to help to build up the kingdom of God. He did not, but in that thing was the grand thread of the Priesthood developed. The grand object in view was to try the people of God, to see what was in them.
If Grass Denmark South Carolina casual encounters a man of God should come Wives seeking sex Clear Spring me and say, "I want your gold and silver, or your wives," I should say, "Here they are, I wish I had more to give you, take all I have got.
One such man who may have at one time thought like Grant was Henry Bailey Jacobs. He was a faithful member of the Mormon Church and active in Nauvoo society. Lady wants classified ads Henry was constantly called on missions, serving eight of them during this period 4 Zinas: Salt Lake City: Signature Books,p. Signature Books,pp.
