On this episode, we take a look at the essays recently published, by the church, about polygamy in the early church. There were two essays totaling almost 7000 words with lots of mormon speak and convoluted history. They are clearly worth deconstructing from the naked perspective. This episode only tackles the first of the two essays entitled ‘The Manifesto and the end of Plural Marriage’. Next episode we’ll tackle the church’s claims on Joe’s polygamy, when we analyze ‘Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo’.
