I have to admit, I didn’t even know this was an issue:
The Mormon founder Joseph Smith married as many as 40 women, including a
14-year-old girl, church leaders have acknowledged for the first time in a
surprising revelation about their most important prophet. Although the Mormon church was closely associated with polygamy during its
first decades, its teachings had previously portrayed Smith as happily
married to one woman. The reality was apparently very different from that monogamous picture. And
with increasing speculation circulating on the internet about his marital
history, the Church hierarchy has revealed Smith as a prolific polygamist
via an essay posted on its website.
Anyhow, congratulations to the church hierarchy for deciding that truth is better than falsehoods and propaganda. Better late than never.
