Satire: Brigham Young was Bad for the Church, says Progressive in a Beautiful Church Meetinghouse in Utah
There’s no way so many great things of our culture could come from such a horrible man!
by Melissa Young
I’m sorry to interrupt your lesson about faith, but I couldn’t help but notice you used a quote from Brigham Young…and I’m just not sure that’s appropriate…
I’m personally ashamed of Brigham Young! He is an embarrassment to our church and our culture. His views on plural marriage, on the priesthood, and on God himself are a hindrance to the message of Jesus!
While it’s true that he did vital work spreading the gospel, and maintained his faith in times when other men fell away into apostasy…and while it’s true he made great sacrifices to witness of Christ and the restoration of the true church, he had opinions that I disagree with!
Sorry, I’m just adjusting my position on this padded chair in a heated room in a beautiful house of worship here in Utah…Give me a moment…
Wow, that’s comfortable! This is such a nice building… I’m glad the church is established so well here…Anyway…
I was going to say even though his leadership allowed the church to spread throughout the west, and the difficult decisions he made allowed the saints to become so established that they could not be displaced again as they had been in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois…he was the product of a corrupt culture and we should get rid of everything that came from him or is in any way associated with him!
I should know — because I’m a descendant of Brigham Young!
