Mormon Decisions 10The LDS Church has gone out of its way lately to publicly denounce the sins of others in society, so we’re wondering when, or rather if, they’re ever going to publicly denounce their own.Joseph Smith 8

Joe Smith was a busy guy with all the face to face meetings with God and subsequent prophecies he had to dole out.
