Mormons, Joe Smith, Christians, and Polygamists
by

The Mormons — that is, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints — have made the cover of Newsweek. Why are the Mormons on the cover when this isn’t a slow news week (Miers, Plamegate)? It’s tough to determine from the article. There’s nothing particularly news-worthy, like a new apostate historian proving that Joseph Smith was a particularly skilled huckster. That said, if you’re a little hazy on Mormon history, beliefs, and controversy, be sure to read this one. It sympathetically treats Mormon history and claims, but artfully tackles polygamy, whether the Indians were a lost tribe of Israel, and if the Mormons can credibly be called Christians.
