And the lies continue. Up until the essay in 2014, the church hid the fact that Smith had over 30 wives. Even now, few members have even read the essay that is buried deep in the Church's website. It's not listed on the new 'comprehensive' . It's not plainly discussed by the church. Take a poll of your ward members. I bet you will find that most everyone knows about Brigham Young's wives but many of them will not know about Joseph's wives. And how about the new church manuals about Brigham Young? They changed all the references from 'wives' to 'wife' to make it sound as if these people only had one wife.

Critic's comments: Why did the prophet of the Church say that polygamy was not doctrinal? It is still in the Church's scriptural canon, D&C 132. Hinckley makes it sound as if it was either a mistake or practiced for reasons unrelated to religion. Surely he knows why it was practiced. Also, he makes an issue that polygamy is not legal today (as practiced by the fundamentalists). That's correct but it was not legal when the LDS practiced it in the 1800s either. He wants everyone to believe that polygamy was legal when the Latter-day Saints practiced it in the 1800s but that is illegal now as practiced by the fundamentalists. As shown , this is untrue. It was always illegal—from Joseph's first plural wife in 1833 through the 2nd manifesto in 1904.
