The Crimes of the Latter Day Saints in Utah free pdf Excerpt from The Crimes of the Latter Day Saints in Utah When it became known to certain of my friends that I contemplated writing a pamphlet on the Mormon Question, a number of the more prominent ones expressed themselves as being desirous of assisting me in every possible manner, and two of them - one a Senator, and the other a Governor of a State - proffered to write a preface to the work. I intended to have accepted their services, as I knew their endorsement would assist me very materially in the circulation of my story, but on reading the action of the "Committee on Mormon Polygamy" at the Cincinnati Methodist Conference in October, I decided to adopt it, thinking it a fitting prelude to the startling facts which the succeeding pages will present to the reader. Following is the report: "Mormonism is not a religion. It is a crime, therefore cannot be entitled to protection and tolerance under the laws and Constitution of the United States as a matter of conscience. It is not a religious superstition, but a system of masked sensuality, and hence subversive of every principle of morality, and abhorrent to every feeling of virtue. It is not even a spiritual delusion, and therefore cannot be condoned on the ground that it is a hallucination or innocent mistake in prophecy. It is a preconcerted infernal scheme, partly mercenary, partly political, and chiefly licentious. It was originated in the deepest depravity, and is fed by three motives - money, power and lust. It aims to diffuse itself by pandering to the lowest depravities of human nature. When this cannot be done directly, on account of the natural revolts of instinctive virtue to the monstrous propositon of the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes under the guise of marriage, a resort is had to deception and falsehood. They take advantage of the ignorance, poverty, degradation and fanaticism of some persons, and of the unsuspecting credulity of unwary youth. They first dupe then doom their victims. It is romance and heaven in representation until liberty, virtue and respectability are lost- then it is slavery and debauch. When the so-called multitudinous wives become mothers, the finest property in human nature is made the strongest support of this abomination - the property of maternal affection. Being themselves beguiled women, disgraced, and having entailed that disgrace upon their offspring, they see no hope of respectability for their children but by making polygamy respectable, and that can only be done by making a plurality of wives legal and illegitimate children legitimate. As this cannot be done under the Constitution and laws of the United States, a necessity is created for an independent sovereignty.
