MORMON MURDERERS ~ THE MASS MURDER BY A PROPHET

A group of Mormons deceived and attacked a group of 137 pioneers whose wagon train was traveling from Arkansas, through Utah, and on to California. There are allegations that Mormons in the Mountain Meadows area created unrest among the Native population by spreading a rumor that the the pioneers were planning go to California and return with an army to attack the Natives and Mormons.

Apparently, many people on both sides died in the initial conflict. The pioneers then surrendered. Under a flag of truce, they were disarmed, and then slaughtered in cold blood. In all, 120 men, women and children of the wagon train were killed. 17 children under the age of 7 were considered "too young to tell;" their lives were spared. Brevet Jamor J.H. Carleton noted in his investigation of the tragedy "that about one third of the skulls were shot through with bullets and about one third seem to be broken with stones."

There was "a popular and widespread impression that John D. Lee was the leader and arch criminal of the massacre." He was made the scapegoat, tried twice, and executed in 1877. There are allegations that the massacre was perpetrated by an underground Danite group. This theory appears to be a hoax since no such group existed in Utah at the time.

Brigham Young led a church cover-up, saying that the Natives were responsible for the massacre. He wrote that pioneers had earlier caused the death of Natives by giving them poisoned meat, and by poisoning some of their wells.

Quotes:

"If any miserable scoundrels come here, cut their throats." Brigham Young

"The Mountain Meadows Massacre stands without a parallel amongst the crimes that stain the pages of American history. It was a crime committed without cause or justification of any kind to relieve it of its fearful character... When nearly exhausted from fatigue and thirst, [the men of the caravan] were approached by white men, with a flag of truce, and induced to surrender their arms, under the most solemn promises of protection. They were then murdered in cold blood." William Bishop, Attorney to John D. Lee.

  1. You need to know that the cult is being allowed to speak at Mariners Church, this coming Sunday (August 24, 2008) and is featuring a "mormon/evangelical dialogue" between Robert Millet (from BYU who teaches their missionaries to lie) and Greg Johnson, from the "Standing Together Ministries." This is nothing more than a love fest to make the Mormons look like a "Christian" church.

  2. anonymous...Where is Mariners Church? We would like to get right on this one.
    "Standing Together Ministries" should be exposed for the damage they have and are doing to the body of Jesus Christ, true believers, in the real Jesus!

  4. Thanks for the information on Mariners Church being in Irvine, California. It is not too late for everyone to contact this church. Google their name: Mariners Church and let them know by having "Standing Together Ministries" with Greg Johnson and Robert Millet (BYU) a Temple Mormon does nothing more than make The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS)
    appear "Christian" when its teaching and doctrine is many things, but it is not a "Christian" Church. You want to learn what Robert Millet thinks of Christians? YouTube has Millet in a video called "Lying For The Lord", watch it you will hear what he really thinks of all "Christians".

  5. Your ridicule of the mormon church is unfounded, the people who were responsible for the Mountain Meadows massacre were tried and exicuted for their crimes, Brigham Young had nothing to do with the massacre.
    And we don't like being refered to as a cult, It's demoralizing and not very christlike.

  6. The last comment posted by someone as anonymous make my heart break. How is it possible that anyone could make the statement that those responsible were punished. One person John D. Lee and only after 20 years had passed was shot through the heart "Blood Attonement" while sitting on his own casket at Mountain Meadows Massacre site. It does not take much in the was of research to find the truth of what happened to the Fancher/Baker wagon at Mountain Meadows.

  7. You can also read up on the massacre in this new book "Destroying Angel" by Charles M. Larson. Just recently released, it is a historical fiction novel depicting the massacre, intertwined with a modern murder mystery. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Destroying-Angel-Charles-M-Larson/dp/1933990155/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1222188268&sr=11-1

  8. I haven't had a chance to read this new book on the massacre "Destroying Angel" by Charles M. Larson. Glad to hear it has been released and is available. There is know doubt it is an interesting book that will be hard to put down. Rocky and I had the pleasure of meeting Charles in '2007' during the 150th Memorial of the Mountain Meadows Massacre.

  9. Responding to "anonymous" post of Sept 3rd:

    Unlike you, I'm not "anonymous" because I'm not afraid to stand up for, nor back up, what I say. My comments about the Mormon Church's direct involvement in the Mountain Meadows Massacre, contrary to what you say, is founded on reams of evidence. The perpetrators of this hideous crime where not brought to justice; rather, a single scape goat, John D. Lee, was offered up by "Brother Brigham" to try and save his own bacon. The Mormon Church today has been forced to admit that documents from the Mormon Archive concerning this event were destroyed. Why? If those documents would have cleared "Brother Brigham," do you actually believe the Mormon Church would have destroyed them? The mere fact that documents were destroyed is proof positive that Brigham was guilty! Someone trying to prove their case does not destroy exonerating documents, they only destroy those which condemn.

    I believe Jesus called the Pharisees "you brood of vipers." How "un-Christ like" could Jesus possibly be? Shame on Jesus for confronting people with the truth. When Jesus told the woman at the well that she had been with several men, he should have stayed out of her bedroom - how dare he! Sorry "anonymous," I'm with Jesus when it comes to confronting false religions and telling the truth. Read the definition of a cult and then objectively apply that definition to Mormonism - if the shoe fits, wear it! Mormonism, by definition, is what it is, a CULT!
