We can find no person who presents a better character to the world when the facts are known than Joseph Smith, jun., the prophet, and his brother, Hyrum Smith, who was murdered with him.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, August 13, 1871

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 5:256-258; “As to the world’s being in fellowship with us, it never was and it never can be. We cut off the Gentiles just before we left Nauvoo; and they have cut us off from their fellowship.
