Gordon B. Hinckley on Polygamy and Mormons



The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has this great new website on Mormons and Polygamy. With the recent furor over the FLDS polygamist compound in Texas, the Church found that many people, over 40%, still confuse polygamist groups with the ACTUAL Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church has taken a stand, established a presence on the web and beseeched the media to clearly differentiate between the two. Check it out. Now, if only novelists such as Elizabeth Lowell and Nora Roberts would do the same we'd be getting somewhere with smashing the myths and establishing the truth.

So let me quote author, Janet Jensen being quoted by an Australian newspaper one more time . . . Mormons are NOT Polygamists and Polygamists are NOT Mormons.
