Joseph Smith: Disorderly Glass-looker


Interesting article from The Evening Sun in Norwich, NY, via James White's blog. The title: "Newly discovered documents link Mormon founder to crimes". This sort of finding is not news, it has been documented before that Joseph Smith was charged and booked with crimes. I don't tend to use this evidence with LDS that I interact with, mostly because I want to focus on the Scriptures, and how the Bible destroys LDS presuppositions. But, when the time is right, this sort of historical data is very important to show LDS the folly of following a mere man, someone who sinned regularly (like us all), and who was clearly not a prophet. Jerald and Sanda Tanner have done extensive research into Smith. I recommend their ministry whole-heartedly.
