    Yup, like maybe if they admit what we already know, we'll leave them alone? Will they next admit that they stole the "Temple Ceremony" from the Masons?

    I get the idea that LDS leadership is coming to realize that trying to hide this sort of thing is hurting more than it's helping. This comes right on the heels of their coming clean about Mormon underwear.

    and at least one was only 14.

    But it was for their own good, I am sure.

  • LDS Church: Mormon founder Joseph Smith wed 40 wives

    Source: http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/11/living/mormon-founder-polygamy/index.html?hpt=hp_t2

    (CNN) -- The founder of the Mormon church, Joseph Smith, wed as many as 40 wives, including some who were already married and one as young as 14 years old, the church acknowledged in a surprising new essay.

    Smith's marital history had been the subject of frequent historical debate, but until recently Mormon leaders had taken pains to present its founding prophet as happily married to one woman. Now, the church says, "careful estimates put the number between 30 and 40."

    The church, officially called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, disavowed plural marriage in 1890 under pressure from the U.S. government, which had imprisoned polygamists and seized their assets.
