The King Follet Discourse

Post by Moksha »

This sermon in which Joseph Smith fed a multitude of 20,000 with a few loaves, fish, and fry sauce was really something. LDS TV has made a super special presentation of it.

I thought the comments section were interesting... thanks for the link. People are not just swooning anymore when Mormonism presents its "best light" to the world, but are pushing back. It's a Brave New World for Mormons on the Internet...

I imagine producing programs like this puts a smile on the face of KSL executives because they can point to it as a reason to get a salary bump.

Right after the Discourse came the events that lead to Joseph's death in Carthage, Illinois.

Wonder what would have happened if Joseph Smith had refrained from ordering the Nauvoo Expositor press destroyed? He would not have been taken to Carthage at that time, but unless he went full Trump and vehemently denied the truth, the jig was up for Joseph, Brigham, and the Traveling Quorum of Apostles as far as polygamy goes.

Could the Church sustain the lie that polygamy was not being practiced? Would the Illinois Department of Child Protection come to question the 14-year-olds: Nancy Winchester and Helen Mar Kimball? Would Joseph and Brigham have spent time in the Jolliet prison facility? Could Joseph and Brigham convert their fellow convicts to the LDS Church?
