Overall, this essay failed to explain in detail the controversial issues of greatest concern to investigators and members. Below we present the problematic issues largely as they originally appeared on the MormonThink website, yet updated to respond to new material, in the hope that they will be addressed by the church.
From the Washington Republic. The Mormons of Deseret. The readers of this paper have doubtless noticed, in the Congressional proceedingsthe presentation in the Senate on Monday last, of a memorial of Wm.
Now, in relation to this matter, it is not improbable that these charges are exagerated and untrue, and such as could not stand the test of calm judicial investigation. We have no sympathies or regards for this Mormon people; but, judging from what we have formerly heard and latterly known of them, we deem these accusations to be entirely absurd and impossible.
In the first place, if we remember aright, this Wm. Smith, the first petitioner, is a brother of the celebrated Joseph Smith, who originally presided over the Mormons. At the time of Joseph's death, he presented himself to the Mormons, claiming to be the legitimate successor of his deceased brother; but the Mormon people refused to recognize him in that capacity.
But, as we have been informed, inasmuch as he was a brother of one who was highly cherished among them, they consented to afford him protection and sustenance for a time; but his conduct at length becoming, as they allege, more and more dissolute, he was expelled from the pale of their church.
Smith's hierarchical asperations, his subsequent expulsion from the Mormon church, sufficiently explain his present hostility in that community.
It will be recollected, when the Mormons were on their way to the far west, fleeing from the persecutions which they had suffered in Illinois and Missouri, overtures were made to them by the United States officers, under instructions from our government, inviting them to join in the hostilities which were going to be waged against the Mexican republic.
Would this have been the case had they sworn to avenge their wrongs against the government and people of the United States? We find them now knocking at our doors for admission into our Union, at a time when another populous and less remote community are in no hurry for such a consummation.
Does this look like settled hostility to the United States?
Young Church-Service Missionary; Am I Eligible? These young men and women do a great deal of good in Church organizations throughout the world as Church-service missionaries. A worthy young man or woman returning home early from a full-time proselyting mission for reasons other than worthiness may also serve as a YCSM. The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents.

The objections urged against this people on the score of their grasping for territory, and their immoral practices, we are inclined to believe, are of an equally fragile tenure.
With Texas and California claiming an area much larger than they have actually occupied, it is not surprising that Deseret should do the same. We believe after all, that the people of Deseret will be willing to take such limits as Congress may choose to assign to them.
Can the same be said of other States which have applied for admission or been received into the Union? As to the polygamy charged against this people, we consider it almost too absurd to merit notice. That a people, the principal portion of whom have been born and brought up in the United States, and the next largest [part of whom ] the constitution under which they ask admission as a state, than which we have not seen one more lucid or better arranged in any of the states of this Union.
It seems unlikely that the above text was entirely the product of a non-Mormon Washington editor's pen. The overly sympathetic writer know far too much about the "dissolute" William Smith's activities, to have not been heavily coached in his writing about that former LDS leader, etc.
In some years this newspaper carried a masthead which read "Geauga Republic.

Consequently Jesus and his disciples were also Black, as were the early Prophets and Saints.
