Thank you for this powerful and informative article. I am still astounded by the number of people, even today, who think the persecution of the early Saints was solely due to opposition to plural marriage. Because the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were not firmly entrenched in the still young nation, it was easy for mobs to form to enforce their idea of "freedom" by violence. Sadly, we have seen this recently as well as a method of forcing ideas of racial equality without due process. I believe the Civil War was a direct consequence of the general populace of the nation refusing to uphold the rights of individuals regarding religion and slavery. I hope we don't relive that horror, but it looks like we are headed down that road.
