Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

That was when the Mountain Meadows Massacre occurred, at the cost of 120 civilian lives. The darkest shame in LDS history. At the end of the "War", the same outcome happened anyway, with Brigham Young being stripped of public office. Again, do you have a point, or are you just reciting common histo...

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

Lol You really don't know do you? Stunning. After the Saints migrated to Utah, Pres. Buchanan sent the U.S. Army to the Utah Territory to quell the so-called Mormon Rebellion. Became known at the Utah War. Pres. Buchanan sent General Albert Sydney Johnston wit 2,500 troops to crush the Mormon Rebel...

Okay...
And?
It does not matter that you lack understanding. You did not know or understand why the Nauvoo Legion was created. You did not know or understand the Nauvoo Legion continued to exist after their charter was cancelled. Never mind.

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

The Nauvoo Legion was disbanded by the state. It never protected the Saints from mobs, nor did it protect brother Joseph. I'm not sure why it was even brought up. You missed the point. The purpose for WHY the Nauvoo Legion was created. To protect the Saints against the hostile mob. It was created b...

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

24 years after the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ began, Joseph Smith was sitting in a jail in Carthage, Illinois with his brother Hyrum, John Taylor, and Willard Richards. It was June of 1844. The Smith brothers were in jail to face charges for ordering the destruction of a local newspap...

The most important is the 1st - Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, press, assembly, and petition. Listed 2nd is the right to keep and bear arms. Of note, a short 30 years after the Bil...

The Constitution and the LDS Faith

Anyone familiar with the LDS faith knows that LDS folks have a peculiar relationship between the law and the way they conduct their lives. In a nutshell, we believe in conducting ourselves lawfully, honorably, and being good citizens (wherever we live). This is laid out in the 12th Article of Faith....

Which one has donated more money to Democratic campaigns? Honest question.
Probably Ronald Reagan. He was a Dem for 20+ years and Chairman of the California Democratic Party. He eventually became a Republican in 1962. The rest is history.

Re: Smart gun laws

Some FBI statistics on Murders and the weapons used, 2015. With all the chatter about banning AR-15's, I thought it would be interesting to look at some comparisons. You'll notice that murder by rifle is down the list. Handgun - 6,447 Knives - 1,544 Hands, fists, feet - 624 Blunt objects - 437 (club...
